All of the handpainted canvases shown on Needlepoint Shop.com are selected with our customers in mind. We only carry stitch painted and handpainted needlepoint canvas designs from the top needlepoint artists. Whether you are an experienced needlepointer or just beginning, we can offer suggestions on that perfect needlepoint project.
The needlepoint canvas is an open, even-weave mesh, with large spaces or holes to allow heavy threads to pass through without fraying. Canvas is sized by mesh sizes, or thread count per inch. Popular mesh sizes are 10, 12, 14, 18, and 24 (Congress Cloth). You will see these different types of needlepoint canvases described on our site as mono or penelope. Mono canvas is used for hand-painted canvases as well as counted thread canvaswork.
Mono 10 - means there are 10 holes to the inch --- larger holes, perfect for the novice stitcher;
Mono 13 - means there are 13 holes to the inch;
Mono 18 - means there are 18 holes to the inch --- small holes, canvas design can have intricate details.
Frames The needlepoint canvas is stretched on a scroll frame or tacked onto a rectangular wooden frame to keep the work taut during stitching. A frame is highly recommended to prevent the canvas from getting out of shape, which may not be able to be fully corrected during blocking.
So, we welcome you come in and browse in our on-line store, contact us with questions and enjoy your needlepoint project.
I'm starting a new needlepoint project which was designed and painted by Julia's Needleworks. This canvas will go on my kitchen table under my brass fruit bowl. I'll share pictures of my progress -- (this canvas can be custom ordered with any background color).
