Welcome to the House of Needlepoint!

***** All of us at HON wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR. We are very thankful for your continued support of our small business. Our wish is for a very healthy 2021. 

It’s official…the ball dropped and it’s

 

 
 
Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years have come and gone and we hope yours were Happy & Healthy although they were different for many. HON was buzzing to the last minute with gift certificate and canvas purchases as well as stitchers preparing for holiday stitching.
 
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR CANDY CANE WISH WINNERS:
Lile G, Trish L, Jessica M, Hallie N, Libby S & Lisa W
 

STITCH OF THE MONTH

BASKETWEAVE STITCH

 
 
This colorful London Street Map was stitched in the basic needlepoint stitch known as Continental (Tent) and/or Basketweave. Both stitches look identical on the front ~ basically a half cross stitch worked by pulling the thread up through the lower left square hole, and then pulling the thread across diagonally and down into the upper right square hole, as seen in the diagram below. Sometimes using this basic stitch (stitches) is all that’s needed to create a beautiful pillow like this one. The intricate colors and shapes of this canvas would invite many stitchers to look for a myriad of different stitches to put into different colors and quadrants but sometimes simple is a great way to go.
 

TIP OF THE MONTH

GET ALL YOUR HOLIDAY PROJECTS FOR 2021 IN EARLY!!!

THE FIRST HOLIDAY PILLOW FOR 2021

We are already working on a Holiday pillow for 2021. Planning ahead for holiday gifting is especially important this year. As the pandemic continues some of our finishers have alerted us they will not honor deadlines this year. They don’t want to be incredibly pressured as they were this past year. They especially don’t want to disappoint customers! The sooner you get ORNAMENTS, STAND-UPS, EYEGLASS/SCISSOR CASES, SIGNS, BRICKS, STOCKINGS, PILLOWS, FRAMES and FABRIC BACKED PURSES, the better for everyone!
