Subject: Satin stitch width?

[ Next Thread | Previous Thread | Next Message | Previous Message ]
Date Posted: Sunday, October 26, 09:28:47am

I've been looking at a lot of dresses, and dressmakers seem to use a huge variation in satin stitch widths. Do the super wide 8-9mm satin stitches hold up ok, or do they pull like crazy? I like how smooth they look but don't want to waste all that time embroidering something that doesn't wear well!

I find it looses tension when you get to corners. I prefer the satin special option if you're using bernina software. Not sure what it would be called in other programs. (NT)imhoSunday, October 26, 10:26:53pm

Too wide and they snag unless a line of crystals gets glued to it. Some of the really wide looking embroidery is really multiple narrower rows of satin stitching, and I have also seen the really wide with a straight stitch down the center to hold in place. (NT)meMonday, October 27, 05:13:38pm
