The effect of adding stitches embroidery to clothes, in both hand and machine embroidery, has not received much attention from researchers. In this study we focus on the effect of embroidery stitches on the properties of fabrics. Three types of embroidery stitches (Satin - Couching – Crossed back) in the form of longitudinal mid-area samples of cloth are carried out with two methods (handmade and machine embroidery). Fabric properties (Weight per unit area, Thickness, Bending stiffness, Tensile strength and elongation) are the properties under the study. Results are statistically analyzed and discussed. A comparison between results of the two methods is done to clarify the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
