The Naked Canvas tapestry kits are modern and vibrant. Our distinctive style is about dramatic designs in bold yet harmonious colours. Quirky kits that are fun and easy for you to complete in half cross-stitch.
Our aim is to create innovative designs, bringing a contemporary edge to needlepoint. Suitable for all levels, whether you’re an absolute beginner wanting something easy to sew, or a more advanced sewer – a needlepoint pro – we want you to have fun.
We’re an English company with our studio based in Kent, the beautiful ‘Garden of England’ – great for inspiration. Our kits contain English wools and are printed in England. You’ll enjoy the feeling of quality as soon as you open the kit.
Each tapestry kit has everything you need to complete the design and comes in an elegant black eco-friendly rope handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
– Luxury 10 holes per inch (hpi) printed canvas
– 100% pure English tapestry wools from Appleton to complete the design in half cross-stitch
– Tapestry needle
– Reference chart
– Colour key
– Illustrated instructions
– Stitch guide
Sewing is a great way to relax and let loose your creative side – a fun project for your mindfulness ‘me time’. But we warn you, it’s addictive.
Top tips to help your sewing look great:
– Use a frame. This makes such a difference as it helps keep your work taught and prevent the tapestry from distorting.
– Don’t worry if the back of your canvas looks less than perfect, it’s the front everyone looks at!
Once complete, it’s up to you what you turn your tapestry into… a cushion, framed picture, funky bag, seat covers. Let your imagination go… The fun of needlepoint has been enjoyed for years with famous celebrities still creating.
Tapestries are a great way to revamp the interior design of your own home. Or, maybe you want to create something a bit different as a present, to celebrate birthdays, arrival of a new born, Christmas gift, anniversaries, weddings, as a thank you for being a great friend… You can give a kit as a present, or, a unique and truly special gift by giving one you’ve sewn.
Why not pour a glass of wine and ‘stitch along’, sewing the same kit with someone? We love it when you send us pictures of your works in progress and your completed designs – we’ll be posting some up on the website and socials soon.
We’re proud and pleased to have been listed as amongst the very best kits in leading magazines. Also, and most importantly, to hear your positive feedback – keep it coming!
