We have stocked Just Nan charts for over 30 years !! We love the intricate designs and colours. We try to offer most of her current range, so if there is something special you are looking for, please email or ring and ask .

We use Maria's book "The Art of Dimensional Embroidery" as a bible . It has colour photos explaining the threads, seven weights in 200 plus colours!! and all the stitches with lots of charts for you to develop your own embroidered pictures .
The kits all come with threads, instructions, printed fabric.

We have dealt with Martin Winkler in Germany for over 25 years now and really love the designs he develops . He offers traditional floral centrepieces with plenty of canvas so that you can stitch background to fit a favourite stool . He produces a good number of designs in the theme of Klimt , Renoir,Macke - faithful to the artists in design and depth of colour . He has the entire Jolle back catalogue with all the amazing big landscapes and beautifully detailed bell pulls . He even has a safari section!!
We offer a selection here of our favourites but please ask if you are looking for a particular size or trying to match something and we will do our best to find it for you .
The design is not printed on the canvas . It is worked with small horizontal stitches across the double thread of the ten hole canvas. You then work your stitch diagonally over the top of this stitch in the same colour .
All kits come with wools to complete the design in half cross stitch . Some of the cushion sized designs and the pictures come with the background wools included .
we do state which .
