What is a Sewing stitch/Stitches?

In the textile arts, a stitch is a single turn or loop of thread, or yarn. Stitches are the fundamental elements of sewing, knitting, embroidery, crochet, and needle lace-making, whether by hand or machine. A variety of stitches, each with one or more names, are used for specific purposes.

Types of Sewing Stitches

There are basically two types of sewing stitches which are the hand sewing stitches, and the machine sewing stitches. The two major classes or types of sewing stitches are further classified into other different types of sewing stitches which are listed below.

Hand Sewing Stitches

  • Running Stitch: This is a beginner's sewing stitches that requires you to thread your needle and knot the thread and run the needle through the fabric
  • Blanket Stitch: This can be achieved by penetrating the back of the blanket with a needle, pass the first stitch entry penetrated by a needle, leave the loop of thread loose and then penetrate the loop with a needle and a vertical stitch will be created. This can be done repeatedly
  • Hemming Stitch: The inside of your garment should be your starting point, where the hem should be secured and rolled. You will knot your thread until you anchor the stitching. When it’s done, just bring your needle upfront and, before turning to the hem side, take a few fabric fibers
  • Top Stitch: The top stitching is usually done in contrast to the color thread. The best example of this type of stitching is the golden stitching on your jean material
  • Back Stitch: This stitch has been used for centuries as decorative stitch. Penetrate the back of your fabric with a needle and choose one of the running stitches
  • Whip Stitch: This stitch can be achieved by penetrating both layers of the fabric with the sewing needle, and the angles of the seam will be wrapped in the fabric

Machine Sewing Stitches

  • Basting Stitch: A basting stitch is useful when you need to make a rushed, ruffled and gathered detail. The basting stitch can go all along your fabric and slowly pull the top thread. It is similar to the running stitches in hand sewing stitches
  • Straight Stitch: It is used to stitch two fabric pieces. It’s possible to vary the spacing and tightness of the stitch by changing the machine settings
  • Zig-Zag Stitch: Zig Zag stitches provides little neat peaks in the different paths. It is used for finishing the raw edges. It adds elastic to your garment projects
  • Overcast Stitch: This is a machine version of blanket stitches. It provides the clear row over the top of the edge. It’s also paired with diagonal or straight vertical stitches. This stitch helps you to keep the seams and hems from ripping and fraying
  • Buttonhole Stitch: It is used to make buttonholes for buttons with the aid of the special presser foot
  • Decorative Stitch: This category of stitches comes in all shapes. You can try different variations for your perfect style of stitching. They are commonly used to finish the piece of closing
