I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

  1. So Mary these Celtic Monograms are a good example of something where I get confused about the best sort of stitch to use. I can see satin stitch of course going horizontally across the monogram but there are some sections of some letters that seem a bit wide for that but maybe I’m wrong. What would you use to fill in a Monogram like this one? As per usual…thanks again so much for all you do on this site for all of us.

  2. Hi, Miss Bliss –

    Satin stitch wouldn’t normally be worked horizontally – it would be worked at an angle, and fanned around the curves. The cross-overs and cross-unders would have a distinguishing “line” that would break them from the twist, if you know what I mean.

    You can see the method of embroidering a monogram like this at this post:

    Satin Stitch around a tight curve

    These monograms print rather large for monograms – if they were smaller, satin stitch would be somewhat easier to work on them.

    Aside from satin stitch, if you look under the “A” monogram in this alphabet (the monogram index is mentioned above), I do have some other stitch directions. You can always outline the monogram and fill with seed stitch… you can use stem stitch as a filling even. Lots of possibilities!

    I hope that helps!

    Best,
    Mary
