Welcome to the House of Needlepoint!
STITCH OF THE MONTH
Notice how Santa’s Beard was created (on Sadie’s stocking seen below) using multiple length straight stitches anchored by a french knot. It originated as a floral embroidery stitch called a Pistil Stitch, seen below. To see step-by-step instructions click here or stop by HON for a tutorial.
TIP OF THE MONTH
ATTACK YOUR STACK!!! Most would call it their “stash” but many needlepointers have unfinished (or never started) projects in their closets, project bags ~ wherever. It’s the perfect time take one out, spruce it up with new and/or additional fibers while they’re 20% OFF and get the satisfaction of completing an old project. We are happy to suggest new uses for old canvases – maybe instead of another pillow turn that floral into an acrylic tray.
COMING IN FEBRUARY
