Learn all about the balloon stitch and how you can use it on your needlepoint canvases...

Earlier this week, I shared the balloon stitch with you on Needlepoint TV™.  It’s a very functional stitch – and it’s one that you can use on your canvases in a variety of ways. It’s a rather large stitch which means you’ll need plenty of space in order to establish the pattern, so keep that in mind when considering it for one of your projects. The balloon stitch is a member of the straight stitch family.

Using Straight Stitches on Your Needlepoint Canvases

Straight stitches are a terrific way to add texture to your needlepoint projects.

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.
