How to Needlepoint
Are you new to Needlepoint and want to learn it to have some fun while unwinding? We are here to help you :)
Learning a new hobby or a new craft might be daunting, if we don't have the right learning materials. The practice might be easy (and it is, trust us!), but we all need to go and watch some YouTube videos to feel more confident with what we are trying to do!
With Needlepoint we suspect everyone feels the same way! Because of that, we created a series of 3 short videos where we try to explain how to start with Needlepoint. Follow along!
Needlepoint Kit Content: Unboxing
In this first video we briefly explain what is included in every needlepoint kit that you buy from us.
Please note that the small canvases don't include the portable package.
