Or Nue, or pattern couching, is a wonderful technique. It’s quite old but it’s one that can give your needlepoint a wonderful look. BeStitched Needlepoint put a wonderful tutorial on Or Nue on their Facebook page. It’s also available on their Vimeo channel.
The video shows horizontal, vertical, and diagonal pattern couching as well as showing many different threads and patterns. There’s plenty of ideas for using threads beyond the traditional gold to create different look. Plus you’ll get lots of tips and ideas for doing Or Nue.
I love it!
