Have you ever tried needlepoint? If you’re unfamiliar with this type of embroidery, it’s an approach that uses counted thread and has you stitch yarn through a stiff, open weave canvas. Often, you’ll see kits that have the designs printed onto the fabric that you then cover with said yarn.
Perhaps that description gives you an “a‑ha!” moment like you saw it at your grandmother’s house or something. Well, needlepoint has been given a contemporary spin with Canevas Fatal. The company combines the field of textiles with “micro-publishing” (such as zines). “The Canevas Fatal project tends to dust off this dated and kitsch medium and offer a more current alternative,” its website explains. “All of our canvases are produced in a limited edition and we do not plan to reprint them once stocks are exhausted.”
For fans of illustrations, you might recognize some of the artists involved—including one of my favorites, Juliette Oberndorfer. Check out what Canevas Fatal has in stock now and see what else is in the works on Instagram.
