    Hi,

    I have few enquiries to all Ilites.

    1. Where can i get plain raw / tussar silk sarees in chennai?

    2. Are there books available for kantha and kutch work embroidery in chennai? If so where?

    3. After seeing all the Ilites work on embroidery, i was impressed and started doing embroidery.

    Recently i did embroidery on my churidhar and posted the same in this site and got very encouraging comments from everybody. I traced the design with the carbon paper.

    But in a saree, how we should trace the design? Is there any specific method by which we should trace the design ? or there is any shop who can trace the design on the saree?

    4. regarding frames: for the the churidhar i did with the round frame. But for saree are there separate frames? i see in the net frames in rectangular shape in the size of a bed, and people do say that are frames avaibale in rectangular shape half the size of the bed. Is it so? if so where these frames are available in chennai? what will be the approximate cost?

    thanks in advance for all you replies

    bye priyaprasaad

    Use a tracing paper n trace the desired design. Make holes using a pin. Place the tracing paper where u want n apply the tracing powder which is mixed with kerosene.

    4. regarding frames: for the the churidhar i did with the round frame.

    Ranganathan street, T. Nagar - ask for aari frame. Cost depends on the wood used.

    thanks in advance for all you replies

    Most Welcome n all the best

    Hi Jeejaka,

    I am staying in Abushagara . My building is near to Amber supermarket in Abushagara.

    Where are you put up?

    I don't want a cloth. I want a saree to do kantha embroidery.

    Anyway thanks for your kind reply.

    bye priya
