Friday Homework for Lesson 83: Mennonite Tack Stitch

This stitch is easy and you will soon stitch 'fluently'.

For this I used a lovely thread. It is a 'knitted' thread, in Japan called 'Bunka', but I got it as a gift from a friend in Australia,  and I have no idea what it is called there.
The thread is variegated and has metal fibers added. I LOVE this look!


  1. Your knitted thread looks like what we call "chainette". It's a very fine tubular knit, and in an embroidery context, it often has a sparkly thread.

  2. Mennonite tack stitch, I think that's a fun name, there has to be some history involved.
    Something frugal and clever.
    I like the sparkly yarn too. It works well with the tacks.
