I am interested in embroidery of all kinds, especially miniature needlepoint, which is what I design for a living. Anything for doll’s houses that can be made out of fine count canvas and silk gauze is what I specialise in – I’ve been running the business since 1996, and now have around 300 kits in my range. When I am not working, I love doing Dances of Universal Peace (a form of spiritual circle dancing). Other interests include the Sufi spiritual path, gardening, reading, colouring and jigsaws.
My website www.janetgranger.co.uk is where all the designs for miniature needlepoint kits for doll’s houses can be found, and bought, if the fancy takes you. But on my blog you’ll hopefully be able to find out more about what motivates me to design, along with images of stitching in progress (both miniature and ‘full-size’). I find that talking about whatever I’m working on at the moment for myself (rather than new designs for the business) helps keep me motivated, and I love getting comments about what I’m stitching.
I also blog about my doll’s houses from time to time. I have a Georgian style town house, and an Edwardian style shop, which I am making as a toy shop, so that I can indulge my obsession for collecting tiny little porcelain dolls that are only about 1 3/4 inches high!
I have been married to Chris since 1993. He helps me with all the technical stuff that needs doing on my miniature needlepoint kit website (fortunately!!).
In our ‘previous existences’, he worked as a teacher, and I worked in a library. We lived in the Peak District for over 20 years, and in the summer of 2021 we moved again to the far west of Cornwall, to be nearer to the sea.
