What's everyone stitching?
Welcome to Jolly Red and our vibrant range of modern tapestry kits, designed and packed in our Somerset HQ.
Our needlepoint canvases are expertly printed in the South West by skilled craftsmen with you, the stitcher, in mind. We are generous with the quantity of wool we include in our kits, with plenty supplied for tent stitch as well as half cross stitch. We use clear and well defined colours in our tapestry designs, to enhance your stitching experience.
As well as making our kits, we have a team of skilled upholsterers who work wonders with completed tapestries, so do take a look at our Making up Service page if you have any needlepoint canvases lurking in the cupboard.
Our last date for sending out UK Christmas orders is Thursday 20th December – we need your order by 11am on 20th to be able to pack and send it on that day. Call us on 01460 281111 if you’d like to speak to someone in person.
Happy shopping,…and happy stitching!
