    Invisible stitch, to mend a rip,
    I taught this one to a former boyfriend and he uses it in surgery to reduce scarring.
    Take the needle and thread with a knotted end. Pull the needle up through the back side of the fabric near one end of the rip, or tear, then put the needle in the tear and pull it back up through the back of the fabric to the front directly on the opposite side. Do this repeatedly spacing the stitches fairly close together with out making the material feel bulky. Do this all the way to the end of the rip and knot the thread off on the back side of the fabric.

    I learned a great invisible hemming stitch in 4-H.  After knotting your thread on one end, insert the needle into the fold of the hem.  I usually run about one quarter of an inch then have the needle exit the fold and only pick up a few threads of the garment back side.  Now reinsert the needle into the hem fold again and move forward another quarter of an inch, exit the fold area, pick up a few more theads of the garment....  Keep repeating until hem is finished.  This stitch is practically in visible on the front and the back side of your garment.  Happy stitching.

    Needle-point, and similarly, cross-stitching are favorite pastimes of many... my sister, in particular, loved this hobby & I now have every beautiful picture she ever stitched hanging on my walls.  See, my sister died over 14 years ago - but her delicate work, with the most intricate of details (mounted in picture frames so the stitches are protected behind glass) live on and have delighted me over the years, bringing a smile to my face every time I see them throughout the day.  Looking carefully, you can see the love that went into every single stitch & the picture springs into action as my eyes follow the texture of the various knots and stitch patterns she used, as well as the mixture, not only of color, but of texture of the thread.  It takes a unique touch to make these creations come to life... but it CAN BE LEARNED!  You too, can make beautiful wall-hangings like these.  Stitch by stitch instructions are easy to follow and once you learn how to put them all together, you won't want to put your masterpiece down!
