Love to Sew Studio shows you how to back stitch and the importance of it. Back stitching is sewing has many names including: back stitch, back tack, back track, reverse, go backwards, and more. The most commonly used term for it is back-stitch. It is important to back stitch correctly and we show you why and how in this video. If you do not back stitch in sewing there is a great chance that your seam will fall apart. It is important to back stitch at the beginning of a seam and at the end. It is also important that you only back stitch 3 or 4 stitches at each point of the seam. Back stitching too much can look messy and unprofessional. Take some time and practice your back stitching when you are first learning to sew.
