The Otita

By Guest | Cook Islands | 6 Jul 2023

I have been told the stitch shown here in red and pink thread is called otita or the “oyster” stitch. It’s a beautiful stitch that many papa‘a quilters in the U.S. are awed by, they tell me that they’ve never seen such a stitch. Perhaps it is unique to our māmās?
