What’s the difference between needlepoint and tapestry?
Needlepoint is often referred to as “tapestry” in the United Kingdom and sometimes as “canvas work”. However, needlepoint—which is stitched on canvas mesh—differs from true tapestry—which is woven on a vertical loom. When worked on fine weave canvas in tent stitch, it is also known as “petit point”.
Do you use a hoop with needlepoint?
Hoops aren’t used in needlepoint for two practical reasons. First, canvas is too expensive for stitchers to pay for the very wide margins needed to use a hoop. Second, moving a hoop around would crush even Tent Stitches when they are under the hoop. Needlepoint is different from cross stitch and embroidery.
Do you need a hoop for cross-stitch?
For cross stitch, using a hoop is not as essential, although like with hand embroidery, it can help you make more even stitches. If you are new to cross stitch, using a hoop can help you handle the fabric, see the holes more clearly, and keep your stitch tension more consistent. Fabric choice also makes a difference.
How many threads should I cross stitch with?
Cross stitch is generally worked using two strands of stranded cotton when working on 14-count and 16-count Aida. It is perfectly acceptable to mix the number of threads used within the same project. You might want to alter the texture of the finished piece by working in one, two and even three strands.
