Satin stitch is also known as damask stitch. This again is ine of the
oldest stitches evolved and is used for filling not too broad spaces. It
is quite commonly used in different traditional embroidery forms of
India, China and Japan.
Working the stitch is quite simple. Neat long stitches are made very
close to each other following the pattern margins. bring the thread up
through the fabric and make a single straight stitch. Bring the needle
out very close to the stitch just made and continue to fill the shape.
Care should be taken not to use the stitch for broad areas as the stitch
tends to loosen with time. Other versions of satin stitch like long and
short are more suitable for the purpose.
