I'm a visual learner. Sometimes no matter how good the written instructions, it is just way easier to learn by seeing the thing done. I've decided to start making my own How To videos for all you stitchers like me!
My plan is to begin by making videos of the basic stitches, move to intermediate, complicated stitches and then stitches you use on special occasions. All of my How To videos will be archived here.
Here is video #1. The holding stitch, or "How to end and begin your thread." This is a great method if you like the back of your work to be nice and tidy. Sometimes I cheat and just use a knot when I'm feeling lazy. But really, if you want excellent work use this stitch!
