Needlepoint canvas that has a design printed on it is usually sold as part of a needlepoint kit. The design is either screen printed, or digitally printed, onto the needlepoint canvas and the manufacturer packages this product with wool or cotton yarns. The canvas needlepoint is then stitched and made into a pillow or wall-hanging. You can see a wide variety of needlepoint kits (canvas needlepoint printed) by clicking here.
Hand-painted needlepoint canvas is the crème de la crème of canvas needlepoint. There are thousands of designs to choose from and each has been individually painted by hand. This makes them a pricey proposition, but well worth it, as the finished product, once stitched, is canvas needlepoint at its finest.
One popular contemporary way of stitching a handpainted needlepoint canvas is to leave areas of the canvas unstitched, or stitch with open stitches so parts of the beautifully painted canvas show through.
