What people are saying about Practical Embroidery

Thank you for doing this video. I could not figure out how to do this stitch. I watched a bunch of videos and looked at my books and nothing clicked, until I watched your video and followed your instructions. You are a great teacher!
This was PERFECT, as I'm just starting the Sashiko project, and just finished the embroidery project with DSM threads. I won't make the mistake to use the wrong threads now!!
