Starting a new thread can be soooo confusing! If you find yourself wondering where to start or how to anchor your thread, then you’re in the right place, my friend! I’m going to share a few of my favorite tips with you here today. Ready to dive in?
So, you want to learn to needlepoint? Well, my friend, you’re in the right place. You see, I’ve been a stitcher for a reeaaalllly long time. My grandmother taught me how to do the continental tent stitch when I was nine years old – on a canvas that looked very much like the one in the picture above. I also owned a needlepoint shop for 14 years – and I have an online “learn to needlepoint” class called Needlepoint Made Easy. 🙂
Stitches, stitches, and more stitches! Oh. My. STARS! There are soooo many canvas embroidery stitches that you can use to embellish your hand-painted needlepoint canvases. So, how do you keep them all straight? Create a stitch notebook, of course! And that’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do here today. Sound good?
Terrific! Let’s dive in…
