Needle-weaving is a technique where threads are laid in one direction across the canvas and then are woven with threads in the other direction above the canvas. If you’ve seen pictures of some of Kelly Clark’s baskets, done old-fashoined sock darning, or created a detached flower petal, you have see or done needle-weaving.
It’s a technique associated with stitching on cloth, but it can easily be transferred to needlepoint because almost the entire process is done on top of the canvas.
Mary Corbet wants to encourage you to play with stitches and to try needle-woven fillings in your own work. Read her lovely blog post to learn how and to get ideas.
