CROSS STITCH COLLECTIONS
TAPESTRY WOOL KITS
After a trip to Palm Springs in 2005, where she saw 70s style tapestry rug wall hangings, our founder Jacqui experimented with stitching heritage colourful wools on rug canvases. A supersize update of 4ply tapestry work but using cross stitch for a thicker lush pile of wool. She soon received commissions and in 2010 the first of her Tuck Shop collection of calorie free treats was stitched for a Marmite Campaign. She still loves to paint in wooly kisses.. and these are by far our most popular kits. All the wool is 100% British. Some are now archived, but if there is something you fancy, please just ask.

Jacqui has written a number of books featuring her Supersize Wooly Stitch designs, they can be adapted to Cotton if you prefer .. on our site we exclusively have all the books and also key pattern kits from the books..
BEGINNER FRIENDLY MIX N MATCH
The latest book from Jacqui .. a simple bookzine of multiple charts which can be mixed and matched to create infinite combinations and designs. In a simple rainbow palette of classic colours, but easily adaptable.
CREWEL WOOL KITS
Crewel wool is a 2 ply thinner wool which Jacqui uses with 2 whole threads and stitched onto 10HPI. This allows more detailed work but it takes longer to stitch and the yarn is not as forgiving as the chunkier 4 ply Tapestry yarn. She mainly uses Crewel for embroidery and textile work now and so many of her crewel kits are archived.
