Simply Smocking Stitches



Smocking, an age-old needle art, is simply embroidery stitches accomplished over pleats. Using just a needle and thread you, the needle artist, can create texture, flexibility, design and a bit of whimsy to almost any fabric. The stitches taught are: outline, stem, cable, baby wave, trellis, and time permitting florets.
