These 6 stitches will get you started

  • French knot


This stitch is mainly performed in combination with others to provide a vivid look. It can be used to fill motifs or to form the center of a flower. The size of the knot depends on how often the thread is wrapped around the needle.


  • Detached chain stitch

Margeritenstich - Stielstich

If placed in a circular shape, this stitch can create beautiful flowers. It’s often combined with the stem stitch. Smooth fabrics are recommended for this technique.


  • Simple herringbone stitch

Einfacher Fischgrätenstich

Suitable for fine and rough fabrics, this stitch can be applied to patterns or to create decorative border or edging. This stitch is worked from the top to the bottom.



  • Staggered herringbone stitch

Versetzter Fischgrätenstich

This stitch works with the same procedure as the simple herringbone stitch. However, the stitches are worked alternately to the left or right side


  • Needle painting


The flowing course of different colors is achieved by the blending of flat stitches. This stitch creates a surface that almost looks like a realistic painting.


  • Satin stitch


This stitch is worked in close and evenly parallel lines to create a satin surface. It’s important that the stitches are not too long, otherwise the application is too prone to damage caused by friction. To emphasize the motif, it can be padded with a simple stitch.
