I love to use Pinterest as my virtual bulletin board. As you might guess many of my pins are sewing related. Click here to see what fun stuff I've found and pinned to different sewing boards.

Las Técnicas: In Praise of Continuous Stitching

I sewed these three hearts out of costume satin with a continuous stitch, a technique I'm trying to incorporate into my regular sewing repertoire. Continuous stitching is merely machine sewing where the sewist stitches merrily away on one section after another, without stopping to cut the threads away from the previously joined sections. 

Why bother?

1) Continuous Stitching saves thread

2) Continuous Stitching saves time

3) Continuous Stitching helps prevent needle jams

4) Continuous Stitching helps prevent my needle from coming unthreaded

Why not give this habit a try?

¿Por qué no?
