As you learn how to needlepoint, you will also want more stitches. Thousands of stitches have been created for the canvas. Some stitches will become favorites, while others will be best forgotten. Many are very useful for many different projects, while others are good for embellishing purses, guitar straps or other items where you want only one stitch. The Eugene stitch is great example of this. When first created many years ago, it was used as a belt. However, as of late, Eugene has been used on a multitude of stitched projects.
Experiment and make changes to create variation on your own. Use different threads, fibers and textures to explore the possibilities.
Each week, a new stitch will be added. Some will be new to the needlepoint world and others will be classics. You are free to down load as many as you wish. All I ask is for you to have fun and do not use the graphs for commercial use.
The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen is an excellent stitch guide. Her illustrations are clear and easy to read. This book is wonderful for beginner stitchers. It is highly recommended.

Remember, more are to come!
