Last time, we chatted about choosing threads for your canvases so, today, we’re going to talk about needlepoint needles. A tapestry needle is the needle of choice for working needlepoint. It’s a blunt-tipped hand sewing needle with an elongated eye. The large eye can hold thicker needlepoint yarn or multiple strands of needlepoint thread. The rounded end allows the needle to slip between the canvas threads without piercing the horizontal or vertical mesh threads.
I’ve been teaching other people to knit, crochet, embroider, and needlepoint for more than 25 years. Throughout those years, I’ve compiled a list of tips that will make you a better knitter, crocheter, or stitcher.
You may already know some of my tips. Hopefully, you’ll learn something that will improve your skills and make you a more confident needle artist. (Because that’s what you are, you know!)
Sound good? Terrific!
