ZIVA presents a unique collection of needlepoint art inspired by the modernist art and architectural movements from the early 20th century. With suggested decorative stitches from ZIVA, and with your custom finishing, you will create an exclusive work of textile art! Many of the tapestries are shown in room settings to give you an idea of their scale, how best to feature them, and what colour schemes they work well with. We are introducing three stained glass patterns for wall art inspired by two iconic architects and designers from the early 20th century…. These creative geniuses, not only designed avant-garde structures, but also designed many of the interior elements of their buildings, such as Modernist designs flavoured with Art Nouveau touches and adventurous abstractionism!
The Ultimate Guide to Needlepoint Canvas
Sashiko Patterns, Projects, and Resources
Traditionally made in geometric patterns with white cotton thread on indigo blue fabric, the designs include straight or curved lines of stitching arranged in a repeating pattern that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. This style of embroidery and the "sashiko stitch" was used to reinforce or repair worn fabric or tears with patches, making the darned piece ultimately stronger and warmer. You can find full-size patterns for each design as well as a diagram showing you how to work the sashiko stitch. Another set of eight patterns are also available. If you love the look of sashiko patterns but want to try something a little different, you can experiment with changing up sashiko embroidery designs.
About this site
Needlepoint is worked on even-weave canvas instead of fabric. This canvas is similar to wire mesh that's used in window screens. Needlepoint is set apart from all other types of embroidery by the material used to make it. Historically, needlepoint was used for upholstery including furniture and chair covers, pillows, draperies, and rugs.
