African Tiles

£62.00

A richly coloured patchwork of animals, stars and exotic patterns.

Product Description

African Tiles is a wonderful design to stitch with its addictive patchwork squares and zigzag border. The strong colours are very forgiving for any lapses of tension. African Tiles is a relaxing project for anyone with tapestry experience, and is also a good design for an adult beginner who will find stitching the design one ’tile’ at a time very encouraging. The design grows very quickly!

African Tiles looks wonderful made into a cushion, or used as the front of a tapestry bag.

Each Kit Contains

African Tiles tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:

  • Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
  • Reference chart
  • Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
  • Needle
  • Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but will help to prevent your work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.

For African Tiles, we recommend either a CF219, CF2112, CF249 or a CF2412 frame. Choose the CF249 or CF2412 if you may stitch larger designs in the future. You’ll manage with a CF189 or CF1812 if you trim the right hand side of the canvas down slightly, near the colour blocks.

Kind words from happy customers

Margaret, Cambs.

"My son John is so pleased with the teacosy made for his 50th birthday. He liked the personal touches (name, initials and date). He will be able to continue his British tea ceremony in America especially when watching Wimbledon." - Margaret, Cambs.
