'Learn To Needlepoint' Kits
'Learn To Needlepoint' Kits
Beginner Kit   Intermediate Kit
The Beginner Kit will give a novice needlepointer an opportunity to try a variety of  different stitches that are fairly easy to do and build confidence before beginning the basket weave stitch.  Also, since each boarder square is small and can be completed fairly quickly, it will give the beginner a sense of accomplishment as each square is completed.  It also gets the beginner to count the weave of the canvas and learn how to center and position things like letters.
The Intermediate kit is intended to challenge a needlepointer with more experience.  The stitches are more complex than in the Beginner Kit, and the canvas design must be counted out on a blank canvas.   However, because all the areas are rectangular and repeat down and across the canvas, it is not an overwhelming challenge.
