running stitch definition and meaning

What is a "running stitch"?

A running stitch is a basic hand-sewing stitch that is commonly used in embroidery, quilting, and other types of needlework. It is created by making a series of straight stitches that are evenly spaced and run in a single line. The needle is passed up and down through the fabric, with each stitch lying beside the previous one. Running stitches can be used for many purposes, including creating outlines or filling in areas with color or texture. They are relatively simple to execute, making them an excellent stitch for beginners to learn. The running stitch can also be used for basting fabric together, as it can easily be removed once the final stitching is complete.
