In This Workshop, You Will Learn


Knowing what to buy when you walk into a needlepoint shop - or go to order from a website - can be SO overwhelming, especially if you're new to needlepoint or have been away from it for a while. 

Inside this workshop, I’ll show you which essential tools you need to stitch beautiful projects.


There are oodles 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.


During our time together, I’ll show you how to correctly execute the ONE essential stitch that every needlepointer MUST know.

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

A personal invitation

Hello there, I’m Ellen Johnson. A first-grade school teacher turned needlepoint teacher and author.
And just as my Daddy’s mom, Granny, taught me all she knew about needlepoint, I’m here to teach you everything I know. 

Over the past 25 years, 
I'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 free workshop.


My goal is for you to feel confident as you begin - or continue - your adventure in stitching.

I know my class will provide you with the solid foundation that every stitcher needs.


See you there! šŸ„°
