I asked this in the loop method thread, but thought maybe it merited its own thread on the board.
I was intrigued to read that many of you use the pin stitch to anchor your thread at the beginning and/or end of your stitching. I'd never heard of the pin stitch so I went to YouTube and found a couple tutorials. I'm intrigued and may give it a try. Do people find the pin stitch works on the 26 count traditional groundcloth? And does it hold firm even if/when the finished piece is washed? Those are the two questions that are giving me pause.
