  • name for a type of trimming

    I'm trying to find a particular type of trim, but don't know if it has a special name or anything.

    It's a beaded trim, on gimp for insertion. But instead of the usual 'fringe' type beading, this has just a single small bead every inch or so, so once inserted, it just give a more delicate interest to the edge - if you see what I mean. I can't even find a picture to show you all. I've seen it used on ready made cushions in a shop, and it's stuck in my mind as I like the effect. Now i'm close to finishing my tub chair and think it would make a nice 'interest' to the front facings of the arms. But I just can't find any. Has anyone out there any idea what I'm talking about (please don't tell me I must've dreamed it, lol) and, of course, perhaps where I can get some??

    Thanks everyone
    Chris

    VV Rouleaux has something like that, or do you mean a bead sewn onto the braid, rather than hanging?

      I got this beaded trim from my local craft/sewing shop. I was on a ribbon rather than gimp, and was only about 60p a metre.
      LA had one rather similar but was £25 for about 2 metres.

          Thanks Nic - yeah, a single bead on gimp/ribbon - it's just the bead that shows through the seam obviously. Haven't seen any anywhere.

          RJ - thanks. I can find loads of beaded trim, with a 'fringe' like drop, but not what I want. Thank you though.

          Louise - thanks to you too. I've checked collybrook (I use them for most of my trimmings) but they haven't got anything. Although I've e-mailed to see if they know what I'm talking about, lol.

              LOL Louise - I'm afraid not (fussy mare ain't I )

              I can't even find a picture of something similar to show anyone The bead is 'static' so, no 'drop' from the gimp/ribbon). Gawd, it's so difficult to explain in words. I'll see if I can find a cushion with the edging.....

                This is the closest I can find at the moment, although these are continuous beads. What I've got in mind is a 'bead' every inch or so (or even every half inch)

                      Thanks Schuh - not like that, it's got to be 'fixed' not 'hanging', but I appreciate your looking.

                      Tam - we're getting closer, lol. The top cushion is very close, but not what i've in mind.

                      This is actually going to go round the front facing of the arms of a tub chair, so, I am sure you can see why it's got to be 'static'. i just wish I could remember where i'd seen it on a cushion. have searched bother JL and House of fraser to see if it's on of their cushions - but it's not (or at least I can't find it). to be honest, it's such a delicate detail, I'm not convinced a standard photo would pick it up - although a close up would. :-s

                      I'm going back to searching too....
