What are securing stitches?

Securing Stitch

  • Take one small backstitch and make a loop over the point of the needle.
  • Pull the thread through the loop to create a knot, cinching it at the base of the fabric.
  • For a stronger lock, repeat the process to create two or three small knots.

What is the difference between chain stitch and lock stitch?

Chain stitch strength is higher than the lock stitch. Lock stitch strength is lower than the chain stitch. At the top of the stitch, it appears like a lock stitch and at the bottom, it looks like a double chain. On both sides of the stitch, it appears the same.
