The Essential Tools You’ll Need to Get Started in Needlepoint

There are more options available to stitchers today than ever before. And that makes my stitching heart extremely happy! But it can feel overwhelming (not to mention expensive) to wade through all the tools, materials, and threads you’ll need to create the needlepoint project you're envisioning. Inside this workshop, I’ll share the basic tools you need to stitch beautiful projects without buying materials you don't need yet.

Ellen Johnson - EJ_093_8x12

Hello there, I’m Ellen Johnson. A first-grade school teacher turned needlepoint teacher and author. Just as my daddy’s mom, Granny, taught me all she knew about needlepoint, I’m here to teach you everything I know. So we can keep this amazing art alive and well.

Over the past 25 years, I've had the honor of teaching hundreds of new and seasoned stitchers the ins and outs of needlepoint, so they can escape the “so many options” overwhelm and discover the true joy and relaxation of this timeless art.

Now more than ever, we are all craving creativity and connection. Needlepoint has been a way for me to achieve both of these, and I know it can for you too. 

If you’ve been itching for a creative outlet ... 

for a hobby that is all your own and allows you to fully unwind and relax …

then I know you will find what you are looking for in this free workshop.

My goal is for you to be able to feel confident as you begin your adventure in stitching. I know my class will provide you with the solid foundation that every stitcher needs.

See you there!

Stitch with a smile!
