Martin Winkler

A great range of tramme kits (pronounced trammay).

Tramme is a traditional type of tapestry (or needlepoint) on which the design is laid out on the canvas using horizontal, long-stitched, lines of wool yarn, instead of being painted or printed. This makes it very easy to work out which colour of wool to use, working through the larger holes in the normal way using half-cross stitch (or tent stitch) with the yarns included.

This form of needlework is ideally suited to furnishing uses (cushions/pillows, chair/stool seats and backs) because of it's hard wearing properties. the tapestry is worked on 10 hpi double thread canvas

There are lots more kits availalbe in the range. Click here to view the full Martin Winkler catalogue in a new tab

if there is anything you see that takes your fancy, get in touch and we can order it in for you.
