Welcome to The Front Page of Needlepoint! Here you will find news, resources, guides, supplies, where to shop, and tips from the experts.

When you can’t afford needlepoint, try therapy. Wait… what? Needlepoint or canvaswork – sometimes known as tapestry – was traditionally worked in a simple tent stitch with wool threads. Times have changed, and so has the hobby.

The Front Page of Cross-Stitch is added to daily but gets wiped clean at the end of the month. Our Weekly Wednesday Newsletter is a snapshot of that week’s patterns and community news.
