Thanks a lot !

Shakuntala, I have the same problem, they come through my teacher, otherwise nobody else sell them. I'll probably go to India next year, and I'll get some in advance. We'll talk about it then.

But there is videos on youtube on how to do it, it's explained a bit. And basically you have to keep in mind that you're doing the action the sewing machine does. The main important thing is to learn in which way you have to direct the hook.

I just ordered myself a tambour hook (I believe it's the European counterpart of the ari-hook: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_okWtrZQuGa0/SKiNsdiCL1I/AAAAAAAAAOg/2WcEBTPnPYU/s1600-h/Tambour+hook.jpg), so I'll try it this way. Really need to bug my friends in India though, to send me some equipment  Grin.

What threads do you use? Your teacher probably provides you with them (especially the zari, I suppose - have never seen it around here (Belgium, that is)) or can you get them in regular hobby stores?

Yes I buy everything at my teacher store.

The zari costs 25 euros the bobin. The silk thread as well. I have normal silk from a reknown French store (Le ver Soie) but I like to use Indian silk for Indian embroidery Cheesy

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, I'm really glad to share that with people.
