“Needlepoint” refers to a particular set of stitching techniques worked upon stiff openwork canvas. Because it is stitched on a fabric that is an open grid, needlepoint is not embellishing a fabric, as is the case with most other types of embroidery, but literally the making of a new fabric. It is for this reason that many needlepoint stitches must be of sturdier construction than other embroidery stitches.
Needlepoint is often considered as “tapestry” in the United Kingdom and sometimes as “canvaswork”. However, needlepoint—which is stitched on canvas mesh—differs from true tapestry—which is woven on a vertical loom. When worked on fine weave canvas in tent stitch, it is also known as “petitpoint”.
