Needlepoint for Seniors and Beginners

Needlepoint is a form of hand embroidery that’s done on a stiff, open weave canvas. Unlike other forms of embroidery, needlepoint isn’t simply embellishing a piece of fabric, it’s creating one. Needlepoint can be used to create practical items such as purses, belts, jewelry, keychains, and more. It’s also used to create colorful works of framed art, as the designs general cover the majority of the canvas working area.
