Witch Stitch

October 29, 2009

According to the EoVN, the witch stitch is the name given to the herringbone stitch when it is used in fancy embroidery. The beautywitch stitch of the stitch depends entirely upon the execution. EoVN adamantly states that “every stitch requires to be put in at an exact distance from the last made, and the amount of material taken up upon the needle should always be the same; without this uniformity of execution the work is spoilt.”

Happy Halloween y’all!
