Needlepoint describes any embroidery on canvas where the whole of the canvas is covered by stitching. The term includes gross point, quick point and petit point. Needlepoint often needs squaring before stretching because the diagonal stitch can distort the shape if over tensioned. The term 'tapestry' is often erroneously used to describe needlepoint; tapestries are in fact woven, not sewn.

Note: A skeleton of outlining threads is held in position by tacking in accordance with the pattern drawn directly on to layers of linen or on to parchment attached thereto. The ground net and the pattern are stitched on to this framework without stitching through the backing, and the backing is removed, when the lace is made, by cutting the tacking between the two layers of linen.
Needlepoint is a form of canvas work using thread stitches on canvas. The canvas ground may vary in the weave, whether it is mono woven canvas or interlock. Canvas thread counts vary from 5 threads per inch to 24 threads per inch, where mesh size refer to the number of threads per inch.
