I’ve just uploaded the 2012 catalogue showing all of the miniature needlepoint kits and charts that I sell on my website – almost 200 of them, now! The catalogue is now 28 pages, and shows all the designs in the range, so you can browse it for ideas for things to make for your twelfth scale doll’s house or room setting. Even if you don’t have a doll’s house, a group of these miniature stitched items look good together, maybe under a glass dome, or as a collection on a bookcase or narrow shelf. Many of the designs come in matching sets, which can be bought individually, so that if you like the ‘co-ordinated look’ in your own home, you can now have the look in miniature, too.
The kits contain everything you need, from the canvas or silk gauze, and suitable threads and needle, to the unique components, such as a tiny metal bellpull end, or a kit to make a mahogany tea tray. There’s a section on my website here that shows you what you get in each kit. The charts are printed with colour blocks, rather than black and white symbols, so it is really easy to count the design off the chart as you stitch it onto the fabric. Full instructions are given in each kit on how to assemble the item when it’s finished. If you’d like more information before you buy, then have a look at the Tutorials section of my website, where extra help is given on all the types of kit that I sell, as well as help for beginners on how to do needlepoint stitches, and so on.
The catalogue can be downloaded for free as a pdf, or you can send off for a paper version (£2.50 worldwide, including postage).
Here’s a sneak preview of some of the pages:
