Enjoy working beautiful needlecraft kits - stylish, elegant, humorous, cute, artistic, colourful ... the choice is yours.
A needlecraft kit is a convenient way to engage with this ancient craft - and not end up with surplus materials.
If you want something unique for a special occasion, many kits can be personalised for a wedding or birth announcement or anniversary sampler.
Whether it's cross stitch, tapestry or any of the other needlecraft specialities, you can create a perfect gift for a loved one; a lovely picture for your home; a family heirloom.
Whether you enjoy counted cross stitch, stamped or embellished cross stitch, long stitch, blackwork, tapestry/needlepoint, embroidery, or hardanger you'll know that this ancient craft gives you enormous satisfaction.
As well as being a relaxing occupation, stitching is a way of meeting likeminded people through local needlework groups and embroiderers' guilds.
And once you finish a project you will have a work of art with something of yourself in it!
Needlecraft kits come in a bewildering array of shapes, sizes and qualities.
All are complete with fabric, thread/floss, needle, chart, instructions, and beads or other embellishments if needed.
Some even have a display frame or bell-pull hangers.
All you need to supply is time and effort, although tools - like a sewing hoop - can make your craft much easier.
Counted cross stitch kits are the most popular - you use a chart or graph to count where each stitch is made in the evenweave or blockweave (Aida) fabric.
Stamped or embellished cross stitch kits come with outline or colour printed fabric showing where to make your stitches.
Tapestry/Needlepoint kits have colour printed canvas to act as a guide for the stitches.
Embroidery kits are usually printed with outlines for you to stitch over.
Blackwork kits are also worked on counted fabric from a chart or pattern.
Hardanger kits are worked on specialised hardanger fabric from a pattern or graph.
Long stitch kits are worked on printed fabric.
