Needle Weaving is one the decorative or fancy stitches used in gingham embroidery. Needle weaving does not weaken the fabric rather strengthens it as the fabric is very rarely picked during the weaving.

Here is a pictorial representation of this beautiful stitch.

  3. Wow! I love the unfinished chalk marks and stains! Is there a name or address to research the embroiderer? I would try to look into it and if nothing, I would make up a history. The piece could become an artwork between stitchers through time, though I would leave the original stitches as is and add new completely different images too. Enjoy whatever you decide:)

  4. I never knew that it depended on the number of stitches one got. I just assumed that it was so much per image that was placed on the garment. Guess you learn something new each day.
