Even after 50 years it never ceases to surprise me, how needlepoint can come to life under my fingers. Seeing a stitched canvas in my mind and having the finished project look like what I imagined, or thinking of a pretty color combination and the Bargello patterns brings it to life, give me such joy.
These things aren’t only for stitchers with decades of experience or for professionals only. Every stitcher can achieve this. My upcoming two classes will give you the resources to do just this.
They both begin tomorrow, May 15, so don’t miss your chance to be apart of these great classes!
