Candlewicking is a traditional form of embroidery based on the colonial knot. Candlewicking embroidery dates to colonial times in the United States. Why is it called "candlewicking?" The stitcher, looking for a heavy thread, simply sewed a running stitch using the unwaxed thread used for candle wicks to get the characteristic raised or embossed look. Get the look of an old-world craft in modern times.
