Straight Stitch Family

This is probably, the first stitch you need to know before learning any other embroidery stitches. It is a simple single stitch done by taking the needle in and then out of the fabric. Most stitches begin by making a single straight stitch. Apart from that, many straight stitches can be combined in various ways to come up with various patterns.

A series of detached straight stitches form the running stitch. So, I have mentioned and shown the running stitch family as aย member of the straight stitch family.

    Sarah,

    Thank you very much for the tutorials, you have become my go-to site for embroidery, and it has helped, hugely.

    One suggestion. I know it would be a bit more work, but if the “family” entry had image links to the individual stitches, it would make it much easier for people who are bad at remembering names (such as myself) to find a we want to use again.

    Again, thanks very much for the extremely useful page.

    Dan
