Needlepoint is back in the spotlight with a graphic and contemporary new look. In this bumper directory of patterns, all the designs are easy to stitch in yarn on canvas. The main stitch used for these patterns is the Bargello stitch, a stitch that actually includes several variations such as flame stitch and Florentine stitch. This group of stitches use regular, straight stitches that repeat with a regular offset. Further patterns also use other stitches adapted to the canvas, which will allow you to diversify your techniques and obtain more complex designs. Throughout the pages, you will discover simple patterns that can be repeated ad infinitum, allowing you to cover any size canvas. Follow the colours given or change to your own palettes for even greater pattern variations. Frame your creations or transform them into cushions, bags, cases and more – the hardest part is choosing which of the 500 patterns to start with! AUTHOR: Anaïs Hervé graduated in 2019 from the School of Decorative Arts in Paris in textile and material design. After a stint at Christian Dior’s embroidery studio, since 2020 she has been working as a seamstress at the Mobilier National in the tapestry restoration workshop. These beautiful textiles are a constant source of inspiration for her color and pattern work and feed her side-project as an independent designer. Her practice focuses mainly on textile mediums such as embroidery but also drawing, painting and carving.
