What is Modern Needlepoint Crafts?

Traditional needlepoint craft involves using a needle and yarn or thread to stitch a design onto a piece of mesh fabric, typically canvas, to create decorative homewares and crafts.

Modern needlepoint is a fresh take on the traditional craft that has been around for centuries. It's all about using contemporary designs, colours, and materials to create unique and stylish needlepoint pieces that fit seamlessly into modern homes. Whether it's abstract patterns or bold typography, modern needlepoint designs are all about breaking the rules and pushing the boundaries.

One way to add a vintage touch to modern needlepoint is by repurposing vintage needlepoint artwork. Instead of throwing away those old needlepoint wall hangings, you can use them as a canvas to create your own modern pillow designs. By removing the existing needlepoint design and using it as a base, you can stitch it onto your own contemporary or bold pillow and make a new piece of art for your home.

To start your own DIY design, think about the colours and patterns you want to incorporate into your design. Look for inspiration from modern art, fashion, and graphic design. Once you have your design in mind, sketch it out onto your canvas. Then, choose your yarn wool colours and start stitching! The result will be a unique and personalised piece that combines both vintage and modern styles.
