Bird names

There are 3 names in this directory beginning with the letter R.
Registration:
Correct registration is achieved when all stitches and design elements line up correctly. The ability to line up details and parts of the design correctly with each other.
Reverse Appliqué:
A process in which the fabric is placed on the underside of the garment, and the garment is cut along the tack-down stitch so that the material shows through. Not nearly as easy as regular appliqué, the process, however, shouldn’t be discounted. The dimension that the technique provides is quite different from regular appliqué, and when your customer wants a unique look, this might be something to consider.
Running Stitch:
Consists of one stitch between Point A and Point B. Used for outlining and fine details, outlines, and underlay, especially when details are too small to accommodate a satin stitch. Also known as a walk stitch.
