Do you know that a canvas designer uses the very same elements and principles of art and design on cotton mono canvas that a painter might use on one of their watercolor or oil compositions? In fact, your hand-painted needlepoint canvas is, first and foremost, a piece of art. But what does that have to do with your needlepoint hobby?
Stitching with silk thread is one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to my needlepoint hobby. Now, don’t get me wrong. I adore cotton, linen, wool, metallic, and novelty threads, too, but there’s just something about silk…
