It’s Christmas Eve. If you’re lucky you have your shopping done. If you’re unlucky you still have some people who need gifts.
Why not give them something special?
Give them the gift of your time and the gift of a craft which is relaxing, creative, and always fascinating — give them the gift of needlepoint!
I have a friend who took up needlepoint over the summer, but you could do the same thing as a gift.
Put together in a box or project bag a card announcing the gift of a first project and needlepoint lessons, a package of needles, a threader, and some scissors.
Then after Christmas, and from your stash, you pick out a canvas, threads, and stretcher bars. If more threads need to be bought, buy them together.
Use this piece to teach her needlepoint.
My friend is going great guns on her first piece (a companion dog to my Jack Russell) and, while it isn’t replacing knitting for her) she is really enjoying it.
