TAST Stitch 70 is another fun decorative stitch to play with. The stitch I am proposing for TAST Stitch 70 is Fancy Herringbone Stitch. It forms a strong but pretty line that makes it ideal for a border or as seam treatment in crazy quilting. You can work in different threads and you can lace this stitch with many novelty threads and ribbons or even novelty knitting yarns. If you want to add beads it adds even extra zest. You will find a tutorial for Fancy Herringbone Stitch here
I hope you enjoy exploring what it can do and you can use it in you surface embroidery.
