Counted vs Printed Designs
Both Needlepoint and Cross-stitch are embroidery techniques that follow the same concept of stitching a square-defined design, with a specific color thread to cover it.
In a printed canvas or fabric, you just need to follow through the colors in the canvas and select the right color thread to cover it. Our kits comes with clear instructions on how to select the color thread for each section of the design.
With a counted needlepoint (or cross-stitch) canvas, you don’t have the design printed but rather a charted design pattern to guide you when stitching.
Counted Needlepoint options:
These are the product options you can find in our store, for counted needlepoint patterns:
