What is Sym-Stitching?

If you want to learn a new specialty stitch, try sym-stitching. I needed a name for this form of specialty stitches because the other titles did not cover what I teach in my patterns. Sym-stitching is short for Symmography. These stitches are a form of string art that has been adapted for fabric. Most Symmography is a variety of crescents. This technique looks very intricate but you'll be amazed at how easy and fast it is. A stretcher system is a must, but it does not make any difference if you use a hoop or stretcher bars. Since there are so many long stitches, the fabric needs to be very taut so when you take the project off the stretcher bars, it will be at the right tension for finishing. You may use the needle of your choice, but use the best one for the size of fabric you will be stitching on.

Happy Stitching! -Lynda
