What's everyone stitching?
A warm welcome to Jolly Red. From our base in Somerset we create modern tapestry kits with friendly themes. We design our kits with you, the stitcher, in mind. Our canvases are expertly printed by skilled West Country craftsmen, and we use clear colours in our designs which make them perfect to stitch at any time of the year. We are generous with the quantity of wool we include in our kits, allowing for use of tent stitch as well as half cross stitch.
Our ever-growing range of kits includes designs for all occasions, as well as cushions and other kits to make for your own home. We have kits to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or other romantic occasion, a move to a new home, and tapestries to stitch for a new baby.
Jolly Red stitchers love adding a personal touch to their homes at Christmas, and we have a range of Christmas stocking tapestry kits which will add a wonderful focal point to your festive decorations, as well as being family heirlooms of the future.
We also 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 canvases lurking in the cupboard.
Best wishes, and happy stitching,
Kelly & team
