What's everyone stitching?


A warm welcome to Jolly Red! For over twenty years we have been creating tapestry kits with cheerful, friendly themes. We design our kits with you, the stitcher, in mind and use clear colours and images to maximise your stitching pleasure.

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.

Our needlepoint canvases are expertly printed in the UK by skilled craftsmen and 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.

Jolly Red stitchers love adding personal touches to their homes at Christmas, and our range of twelve Christmas stocking tapestry kits will add a wonderful focal point to your festive decorations, as well as being family heirlooms of the future.

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 canvases lurking in the cupboard.

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.

Best wishes, and happy stitching,

Kelly & team

"Thank you so very much for my lovely cushion. We love it, it is Robbie's favourite one so far. It is especially appreciated as it reminds us both of my dad, who absolutely loved pigs. Don't ever stop creating your wonderful designs. If I lived closer I'd beg for a job!!!!!" - Susan, Sussex
