In This Workshop, You Will Learn
THE ESSENTIAL TOOLS YOU’LL NEED TO GET STARTED IN NEEDLEPOINT
There are more options available to stitchers today than ever before. And that makes my stitching heart extremely happy! But it can feel overwhelming (not to mention expensive) to wade through all the tools, materials, and threads you’ll need to create the needlepoint project you're envisioning. Inside this workshop, I’ll share the basic tools you need to stitch beautiful projects without buying materials you don't need yet.
HOW TO START AND END YOUR THREAD
There are a few techniques you can use to start and end your thread. I’ll teach you the simplest tried-and-true method even the most novice needlepoint artists can master in minutes (and I’ll also show you the one thing you must avoid as you start and end your thread).
THE WORKHORSE STITCH THAT EVERY NEEDLEPOINTER MUST KNOW
There are some basic stitches every needlepointer must know. Inside this workshop, I’ll show you the essential stitch you must master before moving on to more complex ones.
PLUS, you’ll also discover ...
- The subtle adjustments you can make to perfect your stitch tension
- How to match threads to stitches (and different sizes of canvas)
- And so much more!
A personal invitation
Hello there, I’m Ellen Johnson. A first-grade school teacher turned needlepoint teacher and author. Just as my daddy’s mom, Granny, taught me all she knew about needlepoint, I’m here to teach you everything I know. So we can keep this amazing art alive and well.
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 “so many options” overwhelm and discover the true joy and relaxation of this timeless art.
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 for you too.
If you’ve been itching for a creative outlet ...
for 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.
