 NEEDLEPOINT 


Needlepoint is the term given to any hand stitched decorative sewing.

In bygone days the ability to create intricate decorative needlpoint was the pride of a lady.

Today in the fast past of everyday life the art of needlepoint is still being enjoyed by many people as a relaxing and rewarding hobbie.

However the education of hand stitching is a rare comodity.

There are many schools of stitching and textiles for those who a looking to a career in the industry but very few establishments to teach the novice looking for a needlepoint hobbie.


At Clare's Craft Centre beginners will learn the basic principals, increase confidence and become adept at a bygone art.
