Saga 2016 - Featherstitching 101

Last Friday,  I was excited to be teaching  Featherstitching.

It's just the best stitch ever….

If you click to enlarge the photo, you will see it stitched along the edge of the French Acadian Sundress.  When stitched using a floss that is the same color as the fabric, it adds subtle beauty.

When you Featherstitch in a contrasting color Floss it really makes a design statement.

In the case  of the Featherstitching on the Bonnet above, you can see the single Featherstitch and the Old Fashioned Double Featherstitch look quite different but go together so well.

"If  you were to learn just one embroidery stitch, 
I would urge it to be the Feather Stitch"
