Needlepoint in the United Kingdom is often referred to as “tapestry” or “canvaswork”, that is, stitched by needlepoint on stiff open grid canvas mesh. When worked on fine weave canvas, it is also known as “Petitpoint”. Our needlepoint designs are hand crafted with only a basic and simple “tent stitch”, and rely on colour changes in the wool yarn to construct the pattern.
Our regular decorative needlepoint pillows have 132 stitches per square inch. Our Petit Point pillows have an incredible 576 stitches per square inch for even greater detail. Several of our pillows are a mix stitch of regular grosse point Needlepoint and Petit Point stitch. They are indeed a beautiful expression of hand artistry and timeless beauty.
We create this design of a wreath with Red Roses and Green Leaves for festive occasions such as Christmas. In effect, the simplicity of these 2 colours can create a happy ambiance for any ordinary circumstance. It is All in the Details, red roses and green leaves in apparent free formation adorn the full length of the cover as a border trim. The corners are uniformly stitched with 2 roses, A lighter shade of Red, Pink colour yarn gives the depth of field to the roses.
