A luneville or tambour crochet is a tool used in French Haute Couture Embroidery to make beautiful bead work, sequins embroidery, as well as decorative chain stitch embroidery called tambour work.
The luneville hook has a small sharp bent tip similar to a crochet hook and a wooden handle.
The needle should be changed depending on the density of the fabric and the thickness of the thread. Therefore, acquiring a tool that includes needles in different sizes is a wise investment.
The tambour hook is punched through a tightly stretched fabric to catch a beaded fil-a-gant thread from beneath and draw it up, creating a chain stitch.
The embroidery is worked from the back of the fabric.
