The Perfect Banding for your Sacristy Sewing Project!
Pugin 3" banding
Take advantage of the savings you gain by supporting this Studio. We are the sole Australian liturgical dealers for the Pugin bandings, and also the Dominic 3" banding. You can buy them from the medieval re-enactment people, by you will find that their prices are much higher!
HOW MUCH BANDING DO I NEED?
For a Roman set, if the Cross on the back of the Chasuble, the panel on the front, and the four accessories are all trimmed in 3" banding, you need approximately 4.5 yards.
For a Gothic set of Vestments, allow eight yards.
WHICH THREAD DO I USE?
I recommended Gutterman sewing thread, in their deep gold shade #968. Use a small sewing stitch to sewing down the banding, about 1.5 mm to 2mm stitch length.
IS THE PUGIN BANDING DIFFICULT TO SEW?
No, but it also depends on the degree of experience that you have. This banding is usually easy to stitch down, and should not pucker or wrinkle. CAUTION: when stitching the second side down, make sure the fabric underneath and the banding itself, is perfectly flat. Any shifting of either of these will cause a ripple effect.
SHIPPING: For 5 yards the price is $US15 for airmail postage.
