Running Stitch Family

Running Stitch is the basic foundation of many other embroideries and stitch works like the Indian Kantha work or Chikankari work.

Running stitch is also laid as a foundation for a variety of patterns, some of which I will show in subsequent posts so that you get an idea on what different ways these stitches can be used as a foundation for. Then, the rest is up to your imagination!

    Dear Sarah,

    Writing to you from England, I’m a 23 year old girl just out of university. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed browsing your photos and your exquisite embroidery work. Would love to be able to ask you some questions via email? If you could contact me at lizziepocock@gmail.com I’d be really grateful.

    With many thanks and kind regards,

    Lizzie
