Do you need a special needle to sew canvas?

Since canvas is a closely woven, heavy fabric, it’s important to use the appropriately sized sewing machine needle when sewing your new home decor or accessory items. To avoid breaking needles and frustration as you attempt to sew through multiple layers of canvas fabric, use a size 90 to 100 Universal or Jeans needle.

Why is needlepoint so expensive?

Why are your canvases so expensive? The needlepoint that we choose to sell is “hand-painted” which means that each canvas is painted one at a time by an artist with a paintbrush. The amount of time this takes means the canvas will cost more than a canvas that is mass-produced by screen printing or another technique.
