Prairie Point Stitch

The Prairie Point Stitch is a decorative stitch.  It is most commonly used with a Hemstitching (or Wing) needle for heirloom sewing projects.

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.

Heirloom Sewing

This stitch is commonly used for heirloom sewing and vintage style projects. These stitches look best when sewn on lightweight fabrics such as organdy, organza, or batiste. It is helpful to prepare the fabric with fabric spray starch and press it so it has more "body", as the stitch is dense and also usually sewn on a single layer of fabric. Use a SINGER Hemstitching Needle (additional accessory), which helps create small "holes" in the fabrc as you sew. Use a lightweight thread in the needle and bobbin, as all-purpose thread will be too thick and the holes created by the wing needle won't show as well. An Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) can also be helpful because it provides a clear view as you sew. Press again when finished.
