Video: Five Most Common Embroidery Stitiches

If you’re new to stitching, don’t be defeated by tangled thread or intricate embroidery patterns. Instead, check out this video tutorial by Jenny Hart, embroidery queen and the talent behind Sublime Stitching, to learn the five most commonly used embroidery stitches.

Learn how to:

  • Split Stitch, the favourite all-purpose stitch;
  • Back Stitch, for neat clean lines;
  • Stem Stitch, great for curved lines;
  • Running Stitch, used for dashed lines;
  • Satin Stitch, to fill in shapes.

It’s a super-handy guide if you’re hoping to ace the technique before whipping up your anchor purse (free with every print copy of Mollie Makes 42) or adding playful stitches to your black and white photographs.
