I love to needlepoint, taught by my grandmother decades ago: Thanks Nonna! I love to needlepoint gifts for family and friends, the smile on my face when I see my dad and husband wearing a belt I stitched for him. Consider needlepoint like your personal therapy session, clears your mind and you just get into the zone. ENJOY!
The needlepoint canvas is an open, even-weave mesh, with large spaces or holes to allow heavy threads to pass through without fraying. Canvas is sized by mesh sizes, or thread count per inch. Popular mesh sizes are 10, 12, 14, 18, and 24 (Congress Cloth). You will see these different types of needlepoint canvases described on our site as mono or penelope. Mono canvas is used for hand-painted canvases as well as counted thread canvaswork.
Mono 10 - means there are 10 holes to the inch --- larger holes, perfect for the novice stitcher;
Mono 13 - means there are 13 holes to the inch;
Mono 18 - means there are 18 holes to the inch --- small holes, canvas design can have intricate details.
Frames The needlepoint canvas is stretched on a scroll frame or tacked onto a rectangular wooden frame to keep the work taut during stitching. A frame is highly recommended to prevent the canvas from getting out of shape, which may not be able to be fully corrected during blocking.
Once you've finished stitching your canvas or belt, you can send it back to me for finishing. I only carry stitch painted and handpainted needlepoint canvas designs from the top needlepoint artists. Whether you are an experienced needlepointer or just beginning, we can offer suggestions on that perfect needlepoint project.
So, we welcome you come in and browse in our on-line store, contact us with questions and enjoy your needlepoint project.
