The stitch is worked by putting in and pulling out the threaded needle forward through a fabric. Sometimes, this stitch is used to hide a rough edge of a piece of fabric. While using in this purpose, its called tack. The length of running stitches need to be even when embroidering. Otherwise, the embroidery will loose its rhythm.

The process:

1. Poke the threaded needle up through fabric.
2. Leave some space.
3. Poke the threaded needle down through fabric.
4. Leave some space and continue the process till the end.

You can see I’ve marked small dots on the line. This is because, I wanted to make my stitches even. As I am a new learner I need a proper diagram to do it.

The picture guide:

Pull out the threaded needle from one side of the fabric to the other side.  And poke it back, maintaining a certain distance.
