    Hans, if I'm reading this correctly you are simultaneously wrapping the wire and embroidery thread. Is there a benefit to this rather than just over-wrapping the wire?

    Rob,

    Correct on simultaneously wrapping yarn and wire.

    Both techniques have their place. It would be quite tricky (read: impossible) to replicate the effect you see in the image above by over-wrapping a body with wire.

    Cheers,

    By "the effect" I'm assuming you mean a smoother body?

    I mean a pretty level body, without the wire running on top of the underbody.

    Next to that, while do-able, doing separate ribbing this even and this closely spaced would be a challenge.
