Hemstitching - What is Hemstitching

Hemstich is a decorative drawn thread work or openwork hand-sewing technique for embellishing the hem clothing or household linens.  Hand hemstitching can be imitated by a hemstitching machine which has a piercer that pierces holes into the fabric and two separate needles that sew the hole open.  This type of machine hemstitching is used around the edge of items such as baby blankets.  These items look beautiful and may be used AS IS or you may crochet a decrative edge around the item using the holes of the hemstitch for the crochet hook to enter.
