For Adventurous Beginners
We have lots of digital resources that make it possible for adventurous beginners to complete this charted needlework project. It's also great for Intermediate stitchers who want to try their hand at stitching from a blank canvas.
About the Stripes Collection
My goal with Spider Spun has always been to play around more with thread / needlework techniques, and then inspire others to do the same.
Unfortunately, needlepoint is really expensive, which makes experimenting harder. So, I launched the Stripes Collection as a series of digital charts. This will also make it possible for cross-stitchers to jump into these designs — something that has long been requested.
The Stripe Collection should be easy enough for any needlepointer to follow, even if you're a beginner or have never worked from a chart before. Read more about our skill levels.
I stitched through this project in real time, sharing how to do each step of the project. I covered things like how to read a chart, adding in your own monogram, tweaking the color palette, adding unusual fibres, and going beyond tent stitches.
