A beautiful needlepoint canvas will inspire you to spend more time at this relaxing and enriching craft. You'll want to see the needlepoint canvas come to life, with colorful yarns and appealing textures. Buying an inspiring canvas is always a good idea, since one of the few hazards of needlepointing is giving up on half-finished projects in order to move on to the next project.

Needlepoint Canvases with Stitch Guides

Beginners should consider buying needlepoint canvases with stitch guides. There are many different types of stitches involved in advanced needlepoint. A stitch guide will help improve your coordination and your expertise with various stitches.

Another great way to practice new or challenging stitches is with a sampler. Samplers are a wonderful way to try your hand at new stitches. Most samplers employ a variety of different stitches, which should give you a good overview of the basics. Samplers are normally quite simple in design, making them particularly appealing to neophytes. Fortunately, samplers are also very attractive. You'll be happy to hang your very first project.

You can needlepoint everything from pictures to pillows to eyeglass cases. Choose fun, seasonal canvases for the holidays. If you are looking forward to a special event, like a parent's 75th birthday or a child's birth, you can plan ahead, and needlepoint them something special that they will keep forever. Needlepoint is as beautiful to look at as it is fun to make.
