I ❤ embroidery . . . Satin Stitch Video Tutorial~ Of all the hand embroidery stitches that exist, I think the most beautiful, when done well, is the satin stitch. I love this stitch! It does take a little practice to get the hang of satin stitching, and it is true that it is not a very “forgiving” stitch. In concept, satin stitch is very easy. It just takes a little practice to get the edges right and to gauge the distance between your stitches.
