Crosspoint is needlepoint but needlepoint with a difference. It’s a great break for people who like charted designs and it’s a wonderful transition for Cross Stitchers who want to try something more like traditional needlepoint.
It’s charted so the design is not printed on the ground.
But the big differences are in the ground and the stitch. Crosspoint is not stitched on needlepoint canvas but on natural jute fabric. This fabric is worked in hand, not on stretcher bars. Like traditional needlepoint and unlike Cross Stitch, the background is completely covered.
The stitches are complete Cross Stitches, not the Tent Stitch of needlepoint. If you have ever stitched an Elizabeth Bradley kit, you will have done this.
If you are looking for a needlepoint change, try Crosspoint.
