You Really Want To Choose Your Own Stitches and Threads, BUT...
...figuring out how to ACTUALLY do it can be soooo confusing!
I know how you feel… you have oodles of stitch books, but you have no idea which stitch to use WHERE on your canvases.
Should you use the mosaic stitch… or the Scotch stitch… or the cashmere stitch… or something completely different?
Then, how the heck do you fit the stitch you finally settle on into that weird shape?
And let’s not even talk about which thread to use.
It can all make you want to throw your hands up and just stitch the whole canvas in basketweave!
Creating Beautiful Needlepoint Projects Doesn’t Depend on Knowing a Bunch of Different Decorative Stitches, Though....
Getting stuck and fixating on just the stitches will actually cause you more (yes MORE!) frustration and overwhelm.
Too many stitchers assume they are struggling because they can’t pick the RIGHT stitch for a particular spot on their canvas. And that has them stitching and ripping and stitching and ripping - and then stitching and ripping some more.
And when their canvas STILL doesn’t look like they pictured it in their head, they stuff it in the closet with all of their previous attempts.
Then they fall back on good ole basketweave. It’s safe. It’s reliable. And it keeps them stuck..
The Challenge Isn’t Learning Decorative Stitches... It’s Recognizing How And Where To Use Them!
And you definitely need to use some specific strategies. No way around that.
Every stitch and thread you select is part of a puzzle and needs to fit into an aesthetically pleasing and cohesive plan.
Trying to figure out how to create a fabulous finished project by focusing on individual design components without looking at the overall composition of your project is like trying to thread a needle blindfolded.
And all the stitch books and needlepoint apps in the world aren’t gonna help even the tiniest little bit without a framework that will help you put it all together...I Want The Strategies & The Framework!
When You Have The Right Resources…
- You can spend more time STITCHING and less time second guessing yourself week after week.
- Choosing stitches and threads will feel effortless because you’ll have proven STRATEGIES you can pull out of your needlepoint bag of tricks.
- Your stitching buddies will ask YOU for advice about their projects.
- You’ll have more fun than you ever thought possible - and your finished projects will finally look EXACTLY like you pictured them in your head.
- You can finally stitch with CONFIDENCE!
Think about it. Imagine what would be possible for you if you had THAT kind of success with your needlepoint hobby…

Meet Your Needlepoint Guide…
I’m Ellen Johnson, a former needlework shop owner turned online needlepoint teacher.
For the past 25+ years, I've been empowering stitchers just like you to create beautiful pieces of needlepoint art using my time-tested formula for choosing the best stitches and threads for their projects. (I call it the Needlepoint Success Formula and you can use it for your projects, too!)
I'm also a former first grade teacher and my students say that my super power is making needlepoint easy to understand. (That - and my many years of experience as a needle artist. 😉)
And speaking of artists, Needlepoint artists from around the world tune in to watch Needlepoint TV™, my weekly live broadcast where I share needlepoint tips and helpful hints. They read my “Stitching with Confidence” column in Needlepoint Now magazine so they can learn new stitch and thread combinations that they can use on their own needlepoint projects. And they develop their needlepoint skills through their membership in The Stitcher’s Club, my online resource center and community for all things needlepoint.
I'd love to share my love of all things needlepoint with you, too!Join Me In The Stitcher's Club Today!
"My career was in finance. When I retired I decided to try something using the other side of my brain. The entire art world is new and fascinating, but I wouldn't want to travel there alone. I'm so glad you're here to guide me!😍"
