Question: What is a Straight Stitch?
"I have a seam to repair, but I haven't hand sewn before. How can I make a simple straight stitch?"
Answer: A straight stitch is the most common stitch in sewing. It is a simple way to connect two pieces of fabric.

A very loose straight stitch can be used to gather fabric. The tighter the straight stitch, the more secure the connection of the fabric will be.
