Create fantastic fiber art with Napa Needlepoint. I offer the following services: * private or group instruction in needlepoint or other forms of counted thread embroidery (including to shops and guild chapters) * instruction in online classes in many different needlepoint techniques * writing of custom needlepoint stitch guides and designer of custom charted and personal plaids * printed and electronic books and projects * custom charting of names and phrases, with or without borders * custom computer printing of needlepoint canvases * monthly needlepoint clubs on color, thread, stitches, and stash busting I am the internet's leading expert on needlepoint since 1996, and I've been stitching since 1970. I'm madly in love with fiber and have taught many people about threads and colors. Too many people think needlepoint is stuffy, boring, and elitist; in reality, it's more creative, affordable, and easier than many other forms of needlework. I've developed many ways to take the mystery out of needlepoint, so that it becomes handwork anyone can enjoy. I'm dedicated to making needlepoint fast, fun and affordable.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Many people think needlepoint is something only their grandmothers do, but in fact needlepoint is endlessly creative. You may have felt excluded from this world, but have longed to learn needlepoint. I can help you, I meet you where you are, take into consideration your goals and tastes, and always keep in mind that the money you spend on needlepoint is important to you. Do you want to learn how to do needlepoint with recycled and thrifted materials? I can help you. Are you put off by the snobbiness of some people? You'll love my unfussy approach, as my students do. Have you been baffled by some techniques? I've discovered lots of ways to make "advanced" techniques easy. Are you a stitcher who would like a stitch guide but are put off by high prices and buying requirements? My stitch guides are made for YOU, taking into account your ideas, what you want to learn and even using your stash. No one offers this level of customization, let alone at my low prices.
