Introduction to Couching

By Joanna Marsh

You may have heard of an interesting technique called "couching". It uses stitches to tack down a piece of thread, yarn, etc. to create a unique look and texture. Couching can be found on embroidery projects, art quilts and some quilters even use couching to quilt with. This great technique can add a lot of depth, dimension and drama to any project and can be added to even the simplest of projects to create more interest.

Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilts and Designs demonstrated awesome couching techniques with her Janome Memory Craft 8900QCP Special Edition. In her tutorial below, Joanna shows you how to couch with a simple zig zag stitch; decorative stitches; free motion quilting and more!
