Does anyone have any needlepoint Instagram accounts that they follow and love for tips and inspiration?
I recently stumbled across this piece on the anthropologist George Stocking and his love for creating biographical needlepoint stockings for his family members. It talks about all the love and hard work that go into works like these and about how he loved to hide little clues and references in each stocking.
Every stocking I've made has taken 100+ hours to finish and that's when I use a printed canvas - he created each of these from scratch! I like how this really honors these kinds of craft as an anthropological item in their own right - family heirlooms that tell a story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
\"His stocking for his granddaughter Isabel included the image of three stockings hanging from a mantle, two of which were recognizable as stockings George had made previously, while the third was a miniature of Isabel’s own stocking, itself containing very tiny images of the three hanging stockings.\"
\"He created a pattern for his seven-year-old grandson, Jesse, who was much taken with The Incredible Hulk. The stocking portrayed Santa as a muscular, green-skinned superhero who seems to have arrived on a garbage truck, punching through a brick wall, to the amazement of a Krazy-Kat like Mickey Mouse.\"
\"His daughter Rachel Stocking, a medieval historian, received a needlepoint masterpiece which depicted her in a medieval scholars’ garb, along with the Panama hat she had sported when receiving her Ph.D. At a table lit by candelabras, she writes her dissertation’s first words (in Latin), while an open tome on a lectern displays her initials after those of others in her family with Ph.D.’s.\"

I recently switched over from cross stitch to needlepoint (i was like mortally offended i needed two passes to cover a single intersection). I went to my LNS and picked up a pattern (shown) and silk thread. I'm not sure if I need to split the strands like I did in cross stitch. I am using pepper pot silk thread and Vineyard Silk thread... any help would be appreciated!
Original work :)
Another person was asking if it is possible and wanted to share proof of concept.
So I have began needlepoint, I have canvas and am close to finishing my first project. I have the materials to finish with leather but have come up blank on good finishing tutorials. I tooled leather before I started needlepointing so I feel comfortable that I should be able to finish a belt or wallet. I have buck skin I’d like to use due to it’s durability for my first project(a wallet) I just need to get it backed then I can stitch a wallet together. Any help hear would be great help and be a good stepping stone to a later project.
Later I would love to finish a belt but with tooled leather making it a true one of a kind. I am a poor college kid so paying for finishing is out of the question and not my style. I also have been doing my projects free hand or seeing stuff online and using them as examples. When I get around to doing a belt I would like to draw the design my self is there any good ways to design a canvas and have it printed?
Any help is appreciated thank you!
Just got these two postcards in a big pack I thrifted. I know some people are super in to needlepoint 🪡🧵 so thought I would offer them up. The backs say “from “Glorious Needlepoint” by Kaffe Fassett. I am going to guess they are from the 80s or 90s?
Anyhooo....if you would like one please comment below. If there are more than two requests will use the randomizer per usual and will message folks when offer closes.
Happy Friday everyone!!
About to drop in like 5. I am experienced tho xD
Hi everyone! I am new to needlepoint. I am an avid cross stitcher but wanted to try needlepoint out. Buuuut.... help! I have no idea where to start 😂 I need suggestions for printed canvases and also I’d like to know if I can use my DMC thread for needlepoint? And do I need to split the strands?
I’m new to needlepoint and love scouring thrift shops and estate sales for finished (but not yet framed) needlepoint canvases. I’ve started a small collection of completed canvases that I would like to join together and make into a patchwork style “quilt” that will upholster a simple bench. Does anyone have advice or can point me to resources on how to join the canvases together for this purpose?
I have a lot of experience with traditional cross stitch on aida cloth but I wanted to start needlepointing. Someone gave me a 16X16 inch pattern that is stamped on canvas that is 10 holes/inch. It isn't traditional needlepoint but it's called English needlepoint which is really cross stitch- oh well. Normally when I cross stitch on aida I like to work my way from the top down and work from left to right making half cross stitches (looks like needlepoint) and then when I reach the end of the row I work my way back doing the other direction of the X. The directions for this show work from the bottom to the top (saying that this way the pattern on the canvas won't rub off) and they also say to make X's not ///// and then crossing them on the way back. Hope this makes sense! Anyhow what I want to know if it is alright to basically work from top to bottom and making ///// in one direction and then going back crossing them all to make X's. Thanks!
My wife wants to do needlepoint or embroidery, but can't because of a temporary hand disability. She told me "You should get me a ??? kit for Hanukkah" and my stupid brain forgot what she said.
Hello, friends. I'm leaving the collecting hobby and will be offering up some of my favorite pens I've collected over a decade. This is an extremely rare 1911 Micarta fountain pen with a needlepoint nib from Mike Masuyama--it's one of my favorite pens. This pen is no longer made and is the version with micarta threads, making it even more difficult to come by.

Hello, I've owned two of these new ebonite version pens over the years. I think the form of the new KOP ebonite is sleek, comfortable to hold, and the pen is an absolute joy to write with. I'm thinking I might be a bit crazy to offer this one up for sale given how wonderful the Masuyama grind is, but I've been downsizing my collection over the last year. But, here we go:
KOP ebonite (new version)--the pen is well cared for and conservatively rated a [B+]
Masuyama needlepoint nib (this is one of my favorites that I have in my collection--so good that I didn't want to tamper with it and put it in a Conid)

I posted here a few months ago to explain that I lost my husband back in 2014. He was an avid needlepointer and I have several finished pieces, plus a couple of half-finished pieces. In my previous post I hadn't yet gone through everything, so I was under the mistaken impression that there were more half-finished and virgin needlepoints than I discovered.
At any rate, I will include a link here to a an Imgur gallery where you can view all of these for your appraisal.
I already have some pillows that were made using his needlepoints, so these aren't necessarily ones I'll want to keep, but any advice you can give me on what to do with these would be extremely useful. What would you recommend I do with these? How does one go about turning a needlepoint into a pillow?
And the big tapestry - is there a volunteer needlepoint association that would finish it? How difficult is needlepoint to get started on?
Sorry for all the questions. Thanks again!
