Needlepoint as it is known today originated in the 17th century, when the fashion for furniture upholstered with embroidered fabrics prompted the development of a more durable material to serve as the embroidery's foundation. Western culture tends to link needlework to women, but it was originally performed by men who spent years mastering their craft.
