We will be closed from midnight December 17th until January 3rd. If you need a kit before Christmas, please order as early as possible to give us the best opportunity to send your order in time.

We only have small stocks of some kits, and some take longer to make up - so please feel free to contact us to check availability before you order.

You can still place orders while we are closed, and they will be sent out in the New Year. Gift cards can be purchased any time, as they are sent immediately by email.

Happy Christmas,

New kits: Marquetry and Stressbusters

Posted on November 18, 2021

We are pleased to announce 2 new kits available from today:

Marquetry (pink)Marquetry 
This is a form that I think works beautifully in needlepoint. The colours are gentle and the stitching simple as there is no shading, just the security of filling in one pretty curved shape after another. I felt that we are perhaps in need of the relaxation that this offers.

I have chosen 4 colour schemes that have proved popular in the past. We also offer a variety of backgrounds.


This idea came from the realisation of the genuine comfort stitching has brought recently. There are times when we just need to do something with our hands which is not taxing - in effect just 'doodle'.

The kits come in a choice of 4 colourways, and include a small canvas, wools, needle and instructions for beginners on how to stitch.They are an excellent introduction to needlepoint, and might make an interesting stocking filler this Christmas.

New kits for October

Posted on October 12, 2021
We have 2 new kits going on sale today.

First is Acanthus & Birds cushion with a light background. 

Acanthus & Birds cushion (light)I have been looking forward to this. It does not matter how familiar I am with the colours or how much I study the wools and drawings, I have to wait for the stitching to be completed before actually knowing what effect the background is going to have on the finished cushion.

I am really thrilled as it is almost a new design adding a delicacy to the piece while losing none of the drama.

Ted in BedSecond we have a companion for Bunnies in Bed: 'Ted in Bed' is not printed on the canvas but supplied with very clear coloured symbol charts. It gives the opportunity to experiment with patterns and, if you wish, different stitches.

As it is supplied with 7/8 to the inch rug canvas and worked in simple cross stitch the design grows rapidly. When you get to the quilt you can make it as simple or complex as you wish.

New Acanthus & Birds kits

Posted on April 22, 2021

We are delighted to announce that 2 new kits are ready at last.

Both are additions to the Acanthus & Birds collection, Beth's most recent adaptation of a William Morris design. The wall hanging is now joined by a cushion featuring the 2 peacocks and a large version of the whole design, mirrored to create a spectacular rug or wall hanging.

This little cushion makes rather a strong statement in any room.

It features the mythical peacocks and sweeping acanthus leaves very slightly simplified, on canvas large enough to cover a stool.

This is a chance to show the original Acanthus & Birds bigger and bolder than ever before. Mirrored and stitched in cross stitch on rug canvas, it demonstrates the design at its very best.

Created for the stitcher who likes a challenge, it is a hugely satisfying project but we only have a very limited few kits immediately available.
