Petit point — meaning "small point" in French and also known as a needlepoint stich — is a type of embroidery stitch. It is worked on a canvas or woven base and consists of diagonal stitches.The thread count or number of stitches to the inch is very small, enabling the sewer to create pictorials as in tapestry. Petit was a favorite activity of Madame de Maintenon, the second wife of King Louis XIV of France. However, this art made its way into Indian Saree borders as well.
