- Arthur Weasley: "I don't know whether you know what — what stitches are?"
- Molly Weasley: "It sounds as though you've been trying to sew your skin back together, but even you, Arthur, wouldn't be that stupid."
- — Arthur and Molly Weasley in St Mungo's[src]
- Dissolvable stitches. Some stitches are dissolvable meaning that they are timed to break down on their own after the wound is healed and do not need to be removed by the doctor or dentist  or by your parents.
- When Arthur Weasley was brought to St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries after he was attacked by Nagini in 1995, Augustus Pye, a trainee Healer, suggested trying stitches to heal Arthur's wounds. This attempt ended up fruitless, as Nagini's fangs had a poison in them that dissolved the thread.
- A boy named Robbie Fenwick once bit Mr Granger. This happened when Mr Granger was checking the boy's teeth. Mr Granger had to be sewed with ten stitches.
