How To... Stem Stitch

How To... Stem Stitch

Learn how to hand-embroider by joining Fine Cell Work's new Virtual Stitch Club.

The third stitch we're teaching is Stem Stitch, with its beautiful twisted rope appearance. Perfect for beginners, we'd love to see you share your stitching on Instagram @finecellwork with #virtualstitchclub.

Our resident stitch expert, Wendy Cramer, will be on hand every Friday from 2pm to answer your stitching questions.



Follow our instructions as you watch:

  • Pull your needle through the cloth where you want your stem stitch to be
  • Bring the needle back very close to the stitch you just made and half way back, to the side
  • Repeat to give a twisted rope effect
