gcc assissiAssisi embroidery, which originated in the birthplace of St. Francis in Italy, is a counted thread embroidery, characterized by the design being outlined and left empty and the background filled in, generally with cross stitch. This is known as a "Voided design". Double running is used for the outlines, making the work reversible. The cross stitch is then worked, with an effort to maintain vertical stitches on the wrong side. Long-armed cross stitch and N stitch are alternatives to cross stitch and will be explored.
