Thread for needlepoint

I really appreciated the answer to my question regarding the number of threads used for the canvas. I wish I had found this site sooner because I would only be using 2, instead of 3 threads on my 12" needlepoint canvas. However, I haven't done anything wrong and it will work out fine. I will be back.

canvas count

The count is how many holes per inch. You choose how many threads you use based on how lightly or heavily you want the canvas covered.
