There are dozens of options available to today’s stitcher, and that makes it even harder to know what’s “critical” and what’s simply “nice to have”. So, today, we’re going to talk about the essentials. Those tools and accessories that you really should have in order to get the most enjoyment out of your needlepoint hobby. Sound good? Terrific! Let’s dive in…
This week, we’re going to take a wee break from looking at needlepoint stands. Instead, we’re exploring the rice stitch. It’s one of those versatile stitches that you can use in a variety of places on your needlepoint canvases. It makes a terrific border. Some people even use it as a background stitch! The rice stitch is a member of the crossed stitch family. There are oodles of variations of this stitch.
The week before last, I posted an article about needlework stands from Needlework System 4, a company in Florida. And this week, we’re gonna continue my series with a peek at the Lowery Workstand. Lowery Workstands are manufactured in the United Kingdom, but they’re available worldwide.
A couple of months ago, I splurged and bought their stainless steel model as a Christmas gift to myself. Admittedly, my experience with them is limited, but so far, I’m reeaaaallllly impressed!
