Stitch Kinds

Various stitch kinds exist, which create special effects just by stitches - any verbal description is difficult. Punching studios often offer catalogues with various stitch patterns for demonstration. Basic stitch kinds are: running stitch, step stitch (or filling stitch), satin stitch (for contours, letters and borders of design). Stitch length and stitch direction as well as density of stitches inside designs are influencing the appearance of the complete embroidery.
