Thorn Stitch

Thorn Stitch

The Thorn Stitch is a decorative stitch that could be sewn alone or combined with rows of other stitches to create unique embellishments.  It can also be used for crazy quilting.





Edge Joining

Two fabrics can be joined together using this decorative stitch. First, turn under and press the edge of both fabrics. An Edge Joining Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) can be used a guide for the fabrics. Place the folded edges next to each other, one on each side of the foot's center guide, and place a piece of lightweight stabilizer underneath the area where they join. For machines with adjustable stitch length or stitch width, select the length and width setting you want for your project. Sew across the area where the fabrics join, so the left movement of the needle sews on the left fabric, and the right movement of the needle sews on the right fabric. Remove the stabilizer when finished. Try using a topstitching thread and Topstitching Needle for a more bold appearance to the stitches.


Decorative Stitching

Use this stitch to embellish your sewing projects with a single row, multiple rows, or even in combination with other decorative stitches. Experiment with various types of thread such as rayon thread, all-purpose thread, metallic thread, topstitching thread, or even 30wt and 12wt cotton. Use a needle that is appropriate for the type of thread you are using. It is also helpful to use a stabilizer to help support the stitches. Learn more about needles and stabilizers on the SINGER website.

Crazy Patch Quilting

Use this decorative stitch to embellish seams on quilt tops. For a bold appearance, try 30wt or 12wt cotton in the needle. At the end of a row of stitching, instead of reverse stitching, bring thread tails to the backside using a hand sewing needle, then tie to secure.
