Stitch and Tip of the Month
Needlepoint canvas is a plain weave open grid of fabric. You can see how the individual canvas threads weave over and under each other in the picture below. The blue marks indicate where the horizontal threads are on top of the intersections where the threads meet. They kinda look like little steps, don’t they? And that’s where “up the steps” comes from. The red marks show where the vertical threads are on top of the intersections where the threads crisscross. And they kinda look like those poles that firemen slide down to get to their firetruck – hence, “down the poles”.
