Any beginner watching these videos? They are so helpful are they not? This straight stitch is a must for just about any embroider project you do and it makes the project complete. You must master this stitch and I sure wish I had these videos when I did embroidery and I probably would not have given up on it. I have some that I must try again and this time I may show my grand daughter how to do it too. Is there a video on turning the corners and is it better to do stitches long or short. I am loving these videos.
