Canvas work

Canvas work is a form of counted thread work, worked on a plain weave canvas ground fabric, and covering the entire surface with stitch.

Canvas work looks very similar to tapestry weaving, as it displays a woven appearance and is often confused with the technique. The most common types of canvas work include needlepoint, petit point, and Bargello work, and can be worked on various types and counts of canvas including single or double. Canvas work is a hard wearing form of embroidery, and is used for more practical reason such as upholstery and cushions.
