FOG Tuesday - Stitch Day

A new warm up exercise for the new year.  Hand stitches are one of the hottest trends in mixed media and other art work. It seems they are being incorporated into everything, whether to add texture to a fibre or mixed media art piece, or onto paper and photos, or in journals and hand made books.

So, in response to requests for some unique, cultural stitches, our monthly FOG sessions will begin with a new hand stitch from another country. It will be fascinating to see where our FOG members take this.

January's stitch is the Hungarian Braided Chain Stitch, aka Braided Chain StitchThis stitch is worked as a reverse chain stitch and is a great stitch for making bold lines of stitching.
