Can anyone tell me if the long & short cross stitch might be suitable for couching?  I have done quite a bit of machine couching using various stitches, and I have hand couched various items by hand using a plain couching stitch.  But I have never used a decorative stitch by hand to couch anything.  I want the texture of the stitch to be part of the design.......Jim D

I personally love using all kinds of different stitched for couching. :D

Absolutely!  Any stitch that will go over the piece to be couched will work.  Using different colors, or shades of the same color, can create really interesting effects.

sewing machines! so many choices. I'm attracted to the Bernette 66, it's a small Bernina. Has anyone used one?
