Chain stitch video tutorial

In this video tutorial I show you how to make a chain stitch in two ways – regular and reverse chain stitch.

Chain stitch is an embroidery stitch in which a series of looped stitches form a chain-like pattern.  Chain stitch is an ancient craft – examples of surviving Chinese chain stitch embroidery examples date back to 5th – 3rd century BC. This simple stitch is very versatile, great for outlining and also for filling. Chain stitch is very handy when you have to embroider flowing, curvy lines.

Did you know that chain stitch can be made in two different ways? You can make regular and reverse chain stitch. In my video tutorial I show you both ways. Try them and choose which one is your favorite, or use them both, as sometimes it’s very handy to switch from one way to another.
