You’ve finished your tapestry, so now’s the time to post it to us for our sewing ladies to work their magic. We’ve set out links to our fabric selections below, to help you choose the colours and fabric you’d like us to use when sending your tapestry to us for making up.
Our cotton fabric is a popular option for a fresh summer look to your tapestry. Our cotton fabric ranges go from creams and yellows through to pastel shades, brights and on to greys and black – and some lovely dotty options too.
We also have some good options in our woolly range, though sadly not as many colours as we would like to have. Many shades have been discontinued and haven’t been replaced with similar colours…somehow it’s usually the shades that look good with our kits that are the first to disappear!
Our third fabric range is our cotton velvet. You can choose either velvet or cotton fabric for the edging, hanging loop and backing of your Christmas stocking which we make up with a contrast cotton lining.
It’s never too early to start a Christmas stocking as we never know how many canvases will be coming our way for making up in October.
More help needed – samples? Call us on 01460 281111 if you need more help or advice on choosing colours. We are happy to send fabric samples, so email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete our online contact form if you’d like us to post some to you. Let us know the title of the tapestry you have completed, and give us a rough idea of the colours and fabric you’d like, and do remember to include your address for the samples!
Non-Jolly Red canvases We have now caught up with our making up following the early Covid years when everyone in the country took to tapestry, so we can now help with tapestries that aren’t Jolly Red canvases. Do contact us and send us the details and a picture if possible if you have a lockdown project that you’d like us to help with.
We can now accept Ehrman tapestries for making up, and are delighted to be able to do this because many Ehrman stitchers stitch Jolly Red canvases and vice versa. It makes sense to have all of your canvases made up to the same professional standard, so give us a call on 01460 281111 if you will need more than one booking form.
Prices/booking form Our current prices are in the making up area of our website and are also included on the leaftet we send out with fabric samples. We can send you a booking form if you need one, either by post or email. Filling in a booking form helps you to remember to include all the information we need.
Once you’re ready to post your tapestry, use a ‘signed for’ method of posting and send it to us at:
There’s no need to buy a smart tube from the post office, as your canvas can be folded. The boxes that our kits are sent out in are ideal, or re-use something that you already have in the house. We are keen recyclers, and enjoy seeing a variety of parcels turning up each day!
As long as our address is clear and the parcel is well wrapped/taped you’ll be fine. Please also write your name and address on the reverse of your parcel.
