It’s no big secret that the art of needlepoint is a slow and meticulous process. One project can often take weeks to complete and can involve any number of thread colors. However, as most crafters and needlepoint designers will tell you, the reward is often well deserved and more than worth the effort it took to create the project.
For those who love needlepoint crafts and are looking for fun and creative patterns to make and give, Anna Maria’s Needleworks Notebook is a great place to start.
Anna Maria’s Needleworks Notebook features four categories of needlework; cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, and crewel. Each category offers advice on common tools used, Anna Maria’s favorite techniques, and hold-your-own hand instructions on how to develop and create your own patterns. In addition, each project journals her process right down to the precise fabrics and exact color number of every thread used in the beautifully photographed examples.
