I’ve made a custom needlepoint kit for my wedding! It came out well, you can see the preview of the stitched canvas I uploaded last week. The letters were a bit fuzzy, but after looking at the canvas, these will be easy to do.
The NeedlePaint needlepoint kits include all the floss, stitch guide, and needle.
So, where does a beginner start? I’ve been wanting to learn needlepoint, and this is a great reason to start. What I’ve found are some great instructional pages and videos!
I started at About Needlepoint and came across Susan Battle’s how to needlepoint videos. The videos are a much easier starting place for me, as Peggy is out of town, and I don’t have anybody to walk me through counted stitch guides.
The continental stitch will be perfect for doing all the sides and boarders, so I’ll start there and update the blog with as much helpful information for beginners or people who have not stitched in a long while.
