Stitch Gudes Made Simple LIVE!™ - a needlepoint workshop with Ellen Johnson

Things are really hopping here in Serendipityville. We’re already half-way through the first week of the 2020 Stitch Challenge and I’m getting ready for my brand new workshop. The workshop, Stitch Guides Made Simple LIVE!™ is happening on October 17th and it’s all about the process I use to write needlepoint stitch guides. I’m really excited about it! Want to know what it’s all about?

Using knotted stitches for flower centers is one of my favorite ways to add texture to a needlepoint canvas.

I’m having soooo much fun sharing all of these different canvas embroidery stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint projects. Thank you for joining me! 🙂 Now, let’s do a quick recap of what we’ve covered so far: straight stitches, slanted stitches, and crossed stitches.  And this week, we’re gonna take a peek at knotted stitches.  

Using Crossed Stitches on Your Needlepoint Canvases

Using crossed stitches to embellish your canvases, like this one from Pippin Designs, is a terrific way to add texture and perspective.

Last week, we explored some slanted stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint canvases. And guess what?! Now we’re gonna explore cross (or crossed) stitches. A crossed stitch is comprised of two – or more – straight stitches that cross over each other to form a new stitch. They come in lots of different shapes and forms, including the standard cross-stitch, the upright cross stitch, and the Smyrna cross, just to name a few. 🙂
