Lesson 17, Chain Stitch

To make a chain stitch border, create and select a form. Then select "Fill/Border/Chain".


A chain stitch border fill is affected by three different numbers. Border spacing, (or stitch length), Border size ( how wide it is), and Chain position, which governs overlap.To change those numbers, select the form, and press "F".

Note the very different look of the stitch when the chain position is changed to three. This feature is very interesting to experiment with.
