A really helpful infographic, thank you All Free Sewing! I have been using a sewing machine since I was a little girl and have made all sorts of things but there are stitches in the PDF download that I have never thought of using before. I have printed it and stuck it on the wall at my worktable!

Thank you Allfreesewing for a great printout guide! This is very helpful in sorting out all the different stitches and learning the proper names. Most of these stitches are the basic ones you will use the most, and I didn't know all the proper names of some of these stitches in spite of sewing for years! Very clear and informative.
