Big Stitch is a new word coined for the modern take on an old art form. It's really only about 3 or 4 stitches an inch rather than the traditional 8 to 10 stitches an inch that my Grandmother could get. Thus we use a much longer needle. It has a bigger eye , due to the heavier thread we use. 12 weight it's called. We use Valdoni, Sulky Petits or Sue Spargos 12wt. It is so versatile! Simple straight lines, follow a decorative pattern or stitch out a story of your own.
