Classy needlepoint!

Everything I said about rug hooking last week also applies to needlepoint.
Folks who claim to have no artistic talent can still design their own needlepointed masterpieces.

…but sometimes we could all benefit from a little help too….

If you come to our Introduction to Needlepoint Class  and don’t have a design idea in mind you can borrow some inspiration.  Above are some wonderful designs by Kate Austin who has generously donated them to use as templates in this class.

Here are some of Kate’s fantastic colour choices but you can develop your own with the help of some Koigu mini skeins ↓

Even with a template you can still get creative with your design by mixing up the composition.  Come join us for needlepoint fun!
