Learn to needlepoint!
It's easy, fun and affordable. Needlepoint can help relieve stress, lift depression and focus your energy. At the same time, you can create wonderful designs to enhance and embellish your home or your wardrobe, or to give as gifts to friends and family... gifts that will be cherished for generations to come.

Most needlepoint shops offer classes in beginning to advanced techniques. Find a local shop, or check out these sites to learn how:

There are also many wonderful instructional books available.
Most needlepoint shops offer a selection of fine, well-written books, offering instruction on everything from the basics to collections of intricate specialty stitches for the more advanced stitcher. They are an invaluable source of knowledge, complete with illustrations and suggestions for use of threads for specific effects.


Stitching classes are for children, too!
One of the joys of needlepoint is that it is a very easy hobby to learn, even for young children. As soon as your child is able to pick up a thread and pass it through a hole they're ready to start stitching!

Most needlepoint shops gladly provide stitching classes for children. If your child is interested in crafting, contact your local needlepoint shop to see if they offer one on their schedule.Should none be available in your area, the list of websites we've provided below will help.

If you are aware of needlepoint or stitching classes for children in your area, or offer them yourself, please let us know, and we'll add them to our list.
