I ❤ embroidery . . . Palestrina Stitch Video Tutorial~ Palestrina stitch is a magnificent stitch. I love this stitch! It’s just fun to work. You can work up a great stitching rhythm with it. The line produced in Palestrina stitch is bumpy! Evenly spaced along the line are knots that have one little arm that extends slightly, and which, when exaggerated, gives a barbed look to the completed stitch.
