As the early settlers moved across North America, they brought this craft with them. So Chicken Scratch is actually known by several different names: Amish embroidery, depression lace, lace stitch, and snowflake embroidery.
Chicken Scratch is a type of embroidery, that gives the impression of appliquéd lace. Using three different stitches you creates a lacelike design on the fabric. The three stitches used to create chicken scratch embroidery are the double cross-stitch, the straight running stitch, and the weaving stitch. Jack Dempsey has made a wonderful tutorial video to show exactly how to do Chicken Scratch Embroidery. Please see the link below to watch the tutorial
