Many people who learn needlepoint, myself included, teach themselves. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that you end up reinventing the wheel, and maybe not learning new stitches very quickly.
I wanted to change all that and make it easy for people to learn needlepoint, learn good needlepoint habits, and have enough stitches at hand to start doing painted canvases with confidence.
The result is my free email course, Right from the Beginning. You can sign up for it here. When you sign up, you’ll get all the lessons so far and then be put on the list to get the lessons as they are released. Once the whole course is done, it will be sent out automatically to new sign-ups.
I’m sending out the first project today and its pictured above. It shows all ten of the stitches in the course’s stitch library and is small enough to keep in your porject bag as a reference.
If you’ve been wanting to learn needlepoint or have a friend who wants to learn, let them know about the course.
