Create feathery, voluminous textures in this overview of spiderweb stitches, needle weaving and playful turkey work stitches. Kristin explains how to troubleshoot tricky areas of each stitch, demonstrating foolproof ways to fill in your stitches without gaps and tie off your work.
The French knot is one of those hand embroidery stitches that's either your best friend or your worst enemy. They're tricky, but (sigh) they're also really useful. Cluster them together for a dense, textured filling. Scatter them loosely for an airy lightness to your embroidery. Or make isolated stitches if your design needs a little punctuation. So don't let a bad experience shake you — we can help you nail this.
