I use this platform to create leather pattern. In adobe I have seen people use pathfinder to create a path inside of a shape to show the stiching. It is called offset path. They then set to 3 mm or 4 mm depending on how you want your stiching to look.  Is there a way for me to be able to do something similar or the same thing on affinity Designer?

You can try the Contour tool on a Copy of the original, just have it above and choose a dashed line for the stroke.

Affinity Designer 1.10.5 | Affinity Photo 1.10.5 | Affinity Publisher 1.10.5 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I see, that works! Now can I use a different style for the line? I would like to use the (Oblique style) (/) I have a european style pricking irons. I see there is only a sold line option and then a dash option.
