“And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen,” —Exodus 38:18. One can only try to imagine the multitude of exquisite needlework found in the tabernacle produced by godly women of that day. Girls can also learn to do beautiful needlework.

Pictures can be stitched to give the appearance of paintings. Also, needlepoint canvas can be used to cover a cushion, make a pillow, or create any number of small, finely decorated items.

Needlepoint is the technique of forming stitches on a special open-weave fabric known as canvas. Canvas is constructed of lengthwise and crosswise threads that are woven together to produce precisely spaced holes between the threads. The points at which these threads intersect are known as meshes.

Needlepoint is both easy and beautiful, and, as such, is a great skill for anyone to begin learning.
