Tramme Specialists

I just heard about Najla's Boutique, an online store based in California that specializes in trammed canvases.

Tramme is needlepoint where the design is put on the canvas through long horizontal lines of wool.  The design is finished by stitching on top of the tramme lines in tent stitches, changing color to match the underlying wool color.  You end up with a very traditional piece that wears like iron and has an Old World feel.

The best quality tramme canvases used to be produced in Portugal.  I don't know if that is the case now but tramme has been hard to find in this country, so I am thrilled there is a new supplier.
