Needlepoint Stitch of the Week

I’ve decided to add a recurring post, “Stitch of the Week”,  and will have a diagram together with use and thread suggestions.  The first entry in this category is the Brocade Stitch, a versatile combination stitch handy to have in your repertoire – it can be used for winter coats, furniture, even garden paths can easily be created with it.  Your choice of threads will dramatically affect the appearance.  Using heavier weight threads will ramp up the bumpy texture, reducing size or plies will even it out.  Use a doodle canvas to experiment with various combinations of threads, colors, etc.  Let your imagination go, you may be surprised at the results!  Keep on stitching – NPQ
