Longstitch is an embroidery technique which involves combining stitches in a variety of lengths to create an image or pattern. It became very popular in the 1970's and is very fast and easy to stitch. The definition of a long stitch is one straight stitch worked to any length in one direction, though most longstitch kits use a vertical stitch.
Longstitch kits usually have the design outline printed onto the canvas but can also be counted from a chart.
