Embroidery on canvas  with Khushi Agarwal

Embroidery on canvas with Khushi Agarwal

Needlepoint type of embroidery is also known as canvas work until the early 19th century. In needlepoint the stitches are counted and worked with a needle over the threads, or mesh, of a canvas foundation. There are more than 150 canvas embroidery stitches, most of which are a  combination of the long stitch, covering more than one mesh, or intersection of threads, and the tent stitch, which covers only one. Since the 16th century the most commonly used stitches have been the tent (or continental) stitch, the vertically worked Florentine stitch also called flame, bargello, or Hungarian stitch, and the cross-stitch. In the 20th century the basket weave, or diagonal, stitch has achieved widespread popularity.
