Stitch Notebook

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The beautiful cover. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Having a book like this with all the stitches in your sewing machine is so handy for more than the class. I have had my machine for a couple of years and never even tried out most of the stitches - it was lovely to see how some of the designs stitched up, and how they changed with adjustments to the length and width.

What you will need

  • I used about 1 metre (~1yd) of cotton to make the stitch notebook
  • plus all kinds of colours of 50Wt thread for the 143 stitches on my sewing machine. I have a "Husqvarna Sapphire 870 Quilt" sewing machine. I did a small sample of Stupendous Stitching for the cover just for fun.

Q&A with Thread Head

RuthP asked:
That is great. I started mine this afternoon. Fortunately, my machine only has 38 stitches!!
Thread Head answered:
I discovered that my machine does not stitch all the designs well. I wished I had fewer designs that stitched consistently. At least now I have the reference to which stitches work well.
