In This Workshop, You Will Learn
THE ESSENTIAL TOOLS YOU’LL NEED
There are more options available for stitchers today than ever before. And while that's a good thing, it can also be overwhelming - especially if you're new to needlepoint or have been away from it for a while.
I know how it feels to have "analysis paralysis". The sheer volume of choices you have is enough to make anybody feel like throwing their hands up in frustration.
And it can be downright mind-boggling to try and wade through all the tools, materials, and threads you’ll need to create the needlepoint project you can picture in your mind's eye.
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, indeed, a lot of different ways you can start and end your threads. (I can think of half a dozen off the top of my head!)
But 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 absolutely must avoid as you start and end your thread. (This tip alone is worth your time. 😉)
THE WORKHORSE STITCH THAT EVERY NEEDLEPOINTER MUST KNOW
Yes, there are some decorative stitches that every needlepointer ought to know - but there's ONE essential stitch that serves as the foundation for your needlepoint hobby. And you absolutely have to master it before moving on to the fancier ones.
During our time together, I’ll show you how to correctly execute that stitch in 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".)
Then you'll be ready to try your hand at those more complex stitches.
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.
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 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 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.Join Me Today!
