Gauge Matters!

Gauge Matters!

Have you ever worked really hard on a project, only to have your hat (or mittens or, even worse, your sweater!) turn out waaay too big? Or how about making something that ends up being entirely too small?! Well, that's exactly what can happen if you don't check your gauge before you start your project. Now, you may be wondering - what, exactly, is gauge?
Great question! Let's take a look at it and see why it's SO important!

Choosing the Right Needle

Choosing the Right Needle

Last time, we chatted about choosing threads for your canvases and, today, we're going to talk about tapestry needles. A tapestry needle is the needle of choice for working needlepoint; it's a blunt-tipped hand sewing needle with an elongated eye. The large eye can hold thicker needlepoint yarn or multiple strands of needlepoint thread and the rounded end allows the needle to slip between the canvas threads without piercing the horizontal or vertical mesh threads.
