What's everyone stitching?


Welcome to Jolly Red and our vibrant range of modern tapestry kits, designed and packed in our Somerset HQ.  We hope you’ll enjoy choosing your next tapestry project for your home, or something very special to stitch to celebrate a big day.

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.

Happy shopping, and happy stitching!

Kelly & team

PS If you need any help or advice about any aspect of our kits or our making up service, email or message or tweet us on Facebook or Twitter.
