WOW! It’s hard to believe that we’re already to our last stitch family that we’re going to explore in this series of blog posts! Are you ready to dive into loop stitches? Terrific! Me, too.
Ready to dive into some stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint canvases? Terrific! Me, too. Let’s chat just a minute about stitch families before we get started, though. When you understand how stitches are grouped in families (and how those families relate to each other), it helps make choosing the best ones for your projects much easier. I like to categorize canvas embroidery stitches into these five families: straight, slanted, crossed, looped, and knotted.
Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” Now, you’re probably wondering why I’m starting a needlepoint blog post about texture with a quote from Henry Ford, aren’t you? Well, it actually has more to do with needlepoint than you might think.
