There are very posts in the needlework section, which consists mostly of some form of embroidery. I don't even think that needlepointers post here.  I think this is because people just don't realize that Plastic canvas is part of your needlework heading.  I know there are plenty people doing plastic canvas these days.  If you check out the pattern sites, there are so many relating to this topic.  If there was a seperate section for plastic canvas and needlepoint, you would get many more posts on these subjects.

Nyx, plastic canvas isn't a child craft.  You can make all sorts from it!

I am searching for more ideas for plastic canvas. I have over fifty different books with patterns for plastic canvas, I am currently working on centerpieces for our fall festival at church. I need to make atleast six of them before October fifteenth. I am making different things pertaining to fall like signs, pumpkins, gourds, buckets of apples and such. I made one centerpiece according to one of my books. The one I am making now I am just making things and rearranging them on a board as I get them done. Any other ideas will be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to see a plastic Canvas sub-category under needlework.  It really doesn't fit in with the cross stitch and embroidery stuff.  It's similar yes, but you can go 3d and it really is a different beast.

I second this suggestion! It doesn't quite seem like needlepoint to me (even though I suppose it is) since many of the projects are 3D and can stand alone.

I guess I can see why we don't have our own sub-category now... I can not wait until Plastic Canvas becomes popular again... sigh.
