Welcome to the Wellesley Needlepoint Collection’s Learning Center. The staff is excited to help you learn and improve your needlepoint by mastering older skills and learning new techniques. We’ve offered two free videos below – please feel free to view them to learn how to do the continental or basketweave stitch.
Soon we will also be making our workshops available through this site. When you purchase a workshop, you will receive a package of threads & canvas along with instructions and a password to access the video portion of the workshop.
Needlepoint Basics & the Continental Stitch
In these first two videos you will learn how to thread a needle, start your project, do the continental stitch and
change to a different color of thread.
When you are done viewing Part 1, come back to our website and select Part 2 to complete the series.
The Basketweave Stitch
This video will help will teach you the basic basketweave stitch, how to “read” the canvas and
create smooth basketweave stitches and backgrounds.
