Since most of us don’t have a home economics teacher to help us with our work, here are some modern tutorials for the techniques covered in this leaflet.

Closed Herringbone Stitch by RMPV Creations
Satin Stitch by Make It Coats
Hem Stitch by Make It Coats
This tutorial works under four threads, whereas the leaflet works under three threads.
