Free Needlework Patterns

NAN's complimentary patterns are our gift to you to use individually, or for a guild chapter meeting.

Kente Inspiration - an introduction to needlepoint.

Heart - four hearts using different techniques.

Seasonal Trees - eight small designs, one in canvas work and one in surface embroidery for each season..

Gemstones - twelve small ornaments based on birthstones.

The projects are stitched in a variety of contemporary threads and variety of techniques, including needlepoint, surface embroidery, cross stitch, and other counted techniques. It's a great opportunity to try out something different.

Each project has been designed by a NAN certification graduate or member. Since our membership includes some of the country's best known and widely respected teachers/judges/designers, the patterns offer a great opportunity to share their skills with you.
