In the spring of 2004, I attempted to write my very first stitch guide for a needlepoint canvas. If a stitch fit into an area, I stuck it there – and what I ended up with was a mishmash of canvas embroidery stitches that absolutely did NOT play well together. I was a complete and total failure! Or was I?
Stitching with silk thread is one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to my needlepoint hobby. Now, don’t get me wrong. I adore cotton, linen, wool, metallic, and novelty threads, too, but there’s just something about silk…
So, what, exactly, are laying tools? That’s a terrific question! Technically, they’re tools that you can use to help lay your stitches smoothly on your canvas. But, basically, they’re sticks.
