A new collection of Berlin woolwork style doll’s house needlepoint kits has just been launched

If you own a Victorian style twelfth scale doll’s house, then you will love the new needlepoint kits that I have just launched on my website – a large collection of classic Berlin woolwork style carpets and matching accessories, all in a stunningly dramatic black and gold pattern, with a central panel of flowers in deep jewel tones.

I decided to expand the range of Berlin Woolwork kits, as the first three in this range that I brought out earlier in the year (a needlework stand, a handbag, and a firescreen kit) proved to be extremely popular. I love the strong contrast of the shades in the Victorian Berlin woolwork style, so it was great fun to make each type of kit in this range, using lovely bright colours!

There are two sizes of rectangular carpet, plus a staircarpet, to choose from, as well as smaller kits such as a cushion, footstool, chair, teacosy, tray cloth, bellpull, bolster cushion…. lots of goodies to make, all in the high Victorian Berlin woolwork style.

They are all to be stitched using tent stitch (like half cross stitch) – the fabric counts range from 18 canvas (for the carpets), to 32 silk gauze. The carpet kits contain Appletons crewel wool, and all the other kits contain Anchor stranded cotton. The kits have clear instructions, and colour block charts to count the design from. All necessary components are included in the kits, such as the metal bellpull end, or the wooden chair pieces.

Have a look at the What’s New page of my website to see exactly what the range covers. The kits start from £4.75. P&P is £1.75 per order if placed by post (cheques to Janet Granger); p&p online depends on the order total (but it’s free worldwide on orders over £40).

If you are a beginner to mini-stitching and would like to know what making any of these kits actually involves, why not check out the FREE ONLINE TUTORIALS page first? The tutorials guide you through every stage of stitching and finishing each type of kit, with detailed photos to show you exactly what you need to do. You’ll see just how easy they are to make!
