Kente Inspiration: An Introduction to Needlepoint

Denise Beusen's introduction to needlepoint lessons is up on the NAN website. 

The design is done on 18 count canvas using perle cotton and wool in African abstract patterns.  The lessons explain step-by-step how to mount a canvas on stretcher bars, why stitch tension matters, even explains a good way to protect your stitching while traveling. It's a great tutorial.  Raid your stash for supplies and gift this to someone you don't see often to teach them needlepoint.
