Every now and then an accident happens, and we find ourselves with a hole in our half-finished needlepoint canvas. In my case, it's usually a pair of rogue scissors in my work bag that cause the problem.I certainly don't wish to start my project all over again, especially if it is nearing completion! Luckily, it can be repaired quickly and easily.
I'm a big advocate of doing repairs the right way. In the long run it will save time and frustration.
