Tapestry is not complicated. Its simplicity is its charm, what makes it so therapeutic & relaxing. My graphic style designs, with blocks of colour are helpful for beginners. Having the design printed on to the canvas helps take any strain away. The easy-to-follow colour chart & detailed stitch instructions provided will also help guide you along the way.
Every kit is handmade in the UK by myself, using the highest quality, natural materials. It includes a quality canvas with the full colour printed design on it & colour key shade card, plenty of wool, 3 needles, additional easy-to-follow colour chart & detailed instructions with diagrams. Beautifully packaged, this kit makes the perfect gift. Please be aware this is a tapestry kit. Frames, cushion pads & backing fabric are not included. I am very happy to organise framing or cushion making for your finished tapestry. I have a selection of backing fabrics & frames available to choose from, please contact me for a quotation.
The 100% cotton Zweigart canvas is of high quality. It has 12 holes per inch, is very durable, and softens nicely as you stitch. The full colour tapestry design is printed on to the canvas in Devon, England. Owing to Zweigart's durability a sewing frame is not needed. However if you would like to use one, I recommend the Elbese Easy Clip brand.
Appletons have supplied wool from UK wool markets since 1835, ensuring consistency of quality & colour. Tapestries made from their hardwearing, mothproofed & durable wool have lasted generations. They were proudly asked to provide wool to complete the final 3 missing panels to the renowned Bayeux Tapestry. Plenty of wool is supplied in the kit, however if you need more please let me know.
