Hand Stitching: Using a Stitching Groover
Stitching groovers cut a thin, shallow trench on leather surfaces. They can be used to provide decorative embellishment or to make a guide for stitching. In stitched projects, the stitching lies below the surface of the leather, protecting the thread from wear and tear. Stitch groovers come in two versions, freehand and with an adjustable guide.
