Recently, I thought about how great it’d be if the sewing machines with electronics these days came with a stitch count feature. And maybe ten different counters, at that, while they’re putting in the counting features. A few for different needles, say, and the rest for different garments, as many of us who sew, don’t sew one garment or item all the way through before starting on another.
That title probably has a lot of people asking W? If not with the additional two letters. It was an accidental idea I just had upon seeing some graphic about tattoo symbols meaning various things, but which resembled stitches on a sewing machine stitch guide!
Life is full of symbols. I don’t have to enlighten anybody to that. But there are none for stitches so I figured, what’s a few more? So try this exercise. Look at the stitch graphic below and tell me what symbolic meaning you would assign to various stitches (by their number)
