Bean Stitch

Three stitches placed back and forth between two points. Often used for outlining because it eliminates the need for repeatedly digitizing a single running stitch outline.

Embroidery Tip

  • Bobbin thread showing on top generally indicates an unbalanced tension. The top thread may be too tight and/or the bottom thread too loose. It can also result when a prewound bobbin is used in a machine that prefers its own bobbin type.
