Needlecraft

Needlepoint generally refers to counted thread work stitched through open weave canvas. Needlepoint can be worked in a multitude of stitches however the most common are counted cross stitch, tapestry (tent stitch), freestyle embroidery which encompases a wide variety of stitches. At scanlansarts we currently stock Anchor and DMC in both straded cotton embroidery threads along with the tapestry wool yarns. We also stock a very good stranded cotton called Venus which is half the price of the other brands but of equal quality and colourfastness.
