In this blog post we will show you a stitch guide for our Garden of Joy needlepoint canvas, designed by Kelly Knaga. This beautiful piece was stitched by one of our dearest customers.

The way this canvas is stitched is complex and dynamic, with many decorative, custom and compensation stitches. The stitcher explored the concepts of needlepoint, creating something unique!
