The 5 Essential Tools Every Stitcher Should Have 

Knowing what to buy when you walk into a needlepoint shop - or when you're shopping online - can be soooo overwhelming, especially if you're new to needlepoint, are self-taught, or have been away from it for a while

Inside this workshop, I’ll show you which tools you need to stitch beautiful projects every single time! (And I'll also share tips for how to know which threads work best for the different kinds of canvases🎉)

How To Start And End Your Thread With Finesse

Yes, there are lots of different ways you can start and end your threads...

But I’ll teach you the simplest tried-and-true method even the most novice stitcher can master in minutes. (And you'll be able to rest assured that none of your stitches will come loose when you use this method, too! 👏) 

The One Stitch That Every Needlepointer Must Know

During our time together, you'll learn how to properly execute the ONE essential stitch that every needlepointer absolutely MUST know.

I'll show you how to work both vertical and horizontal rows so that you can change directions and stitch any canvas with confidence. (Plus, you'll learn how to read your canvas so that you can avoid the "Big No-No"😉)

I created this class so that EVERYBODY can say goodbye to uneven stitches (and messy backs!) on their canvases.

A personal invitation

Hello there, I’m Ellen Johnson. A first-grade teacher turned needlepoint teacher and author...

And just as my grandmother taught me all she knew about needlepoint, I'm here to help you establish a rock-solid foundation for your needlepoint hobby

Over the past 25 yearsI've had the honor of teaching hundreds of new and seasoned stitchers the ins and outs of needlepoint, so they can escape the “am I doing it right” overwhelm and discover the true creative joy and relaxation that this timeless art provides.

Now more than ever, we are all craving creativity and connection. Needlepoint has been a way for me to achieve both of these, and I know it can do the same thing for you. 

If you’ve been craving a creative outlet ... 

a hobby that is all your own and allows you to fully unwind and relax 

then I know you will find what you are looking for in this workshop.


I want you to feel confident as you begin - or continue - your adventure in stitching.

And I know this workshop will help you get the basics of needlepoint down pat, once and for all!  

I can't wait to see you there... 
XOXO!! ❤️
