Embroidery Techniques
Remarkably the basic stitches of early work such as chain, satin, blanket, running and cross stitch are still used today. Surviving examples from the ancient world often show a technical skill rarely attained in later times. Machine embroidery from the Industrial Revolution onwards looks like hand work, especially chain stitch. However machine work relying on multiple threads resembles hand embroidery in appearance only not construction.

 Machine chain stitch from China in early 2000s.

 Detail from the Bayeux Tapestry of the 11th Century. Laid threads, a surface technique of wool on linen, actually make this an embroidery!

 “I’ve just done 9 months inside” bib in a Baby Set.
