Needlepoint art is an expression, like any other art. Artists paint on traditional canvases, or they paint their needlepoint art on needlepoint canvases. Hand painted canvases are a beautiful way to needlepoint ... and they are one of a kind.

Choosing Needlepoint Art

When choosing needlepoint art, remember that hand painted designs are high-quality. Most canvases are machine-stamped, which results not only in a mass produced design, but also muddles colors, making the design hard to work with. Why settle for mediocre quality when you can have superior result s with a hand-painted canvas?

Of course, the prices are higher for hand painted canvas. However, your design is unique, a limited edition, and could become a collectible worth money someday. Also, the high quality means your piece will last, perhaps becoming a family heirloom.

If you still insists on mass produced needlepoint canvases, that is okay too. Just be sure to find a supplier that chooses their art carefully. If not, the results of your project, no matter how skilled you are, could be less than desirable.
