What's everyone stitching?
Welcome to Jolly Red and our vibrant range of modern tapestry kits, designed and packed in Somerset.
Our needlepoint canvases are expertly printed in the South West by skilled craftsmen with you, the stitcher, in mind. We are generous with our wool quantities, with plenty supplied for tent stitch or half cross stitch. We use clear and well defined colours in our tapestry designs, to make stitching a pleasure even in artificial winter light.
As well as creating 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.
Happy shopping,…and happy stitching,
Kelly & team
