Does choosing threads for your needlepoint canvases leave you feeling overwhelmed or frustrated? Do all of the different options confuse you? I’ll bet you wish there was an easy way to know which threads to use on the different sizes of needlepoint canvas, don’t you? Well, I have some good news. Today, we’re gonna take a closer look at some of my favorite threads so you’ll have the info you need the next time you want to stock up!

Watercolours is an ahhhh-mazing hand-painted long-staple Pima cotton thread from the CARON Collection.
