A beautiful set of doll’s house rooms with mini stitching in

Sometimes, customers of mine email me with images of the stitching that they have made from the kits that I sell. I always love seeing how people have used the kits in their doll’s houses and room settings – they are a talented lot!

Recently, a customer called Margaret, from Wales, sent me these amazing pictures of her latest doll’s house, which is a Tudor style house. She has furnished it in a Victorian / Arts & Crafts style, with Tudor wallhangings to suggest its long history. All the needlepoint items are from my range of kits.

This is the house, fully furnished.

Isn’t Margaret’s house just beautiful?!

Lots more examples of doll’s houses featuring miniature embroidery can be seen in the Customers’ Gallery page on my website.

Some of my miniature needlepoint wallhangings appear in the magazine this month, such as the Cluny Women tapestry, which is available on my website as a kit, to be stitched on 22 count canvas with Anchor stranded cotton. When completed, it measures 4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches high. The kit includes ribbon to make the tabs, and a pole to hang it from.

There is also an interesting article about blackwork embroidery, and in that article my Blackwork sampler kit is featured. The sampler kit comes with 28 count evenweave fabric, and a stained and varnished wooden frame to put the stitching in when it’s finished.

The Cluny women kit costs £18.50  (or £9.25 as a chart pack), and the sampler kit costs £7.95. Both kits are available from my website www.janetgranger.co.uk
