Breaking News: Jolly Red Has a New Website UPDATED

Jolly Red, the fun British tapestry kit company, has a new website!

If you do a little exploring you'll see that Jolly Red is a traditional tapestry company, which means printed canvases kitted out with tapestry wool.  However, they have started selling canvases only, which is great for those of us who have enough leftover thread to start a shop of our own.  They also offer frames and magnets, just in case you need some supplies beyond their designs and want to order everything at once.  They also will make up your designs for you into pillows or stockings and an occasional tea cozy or tote bag.

UPDATE:  Needlepoint for Fun has written a brief profile of Jolly Red and its founder.

  1. I love the traditional English tapestry kits! They are a welcome mindless stitching project when I don't want to think about what stitch to put in next. I can get into quite a trance stitching basketweave.

  2. They have some wonderful designs. Nothing is more meditative than basketweave, either.
