Welcome to our photostitch page
What is photostitch?
The photostitch technique is more like sketches making the designs realistic, rather than embroidery.
Multi-coloured photo-stitch designs use very densely placed stitches, often overlapping each other, which is why this technique is often used when digitizing works of art.
The design is stitched in layers using colours in a particular order, layer after layer, and go from the lightest to the darkest. That is why it's very important to follow the order of colours.
The only downside to this type of embroidery is that some designs take hours to stitch out, as an example the warrior design took just over 5 hours to stitch out! We were surprised our embroidery machine didn't give up on us!
