Isn’t life hectic?! It’s so important that we take care of ourselves and make the time to do something we enjoy. Exercise √ read a book √ and a tapestry kit to do whilst I’m watching telly √. All these things are important to unwind and escape.
Needlepoint offers something different. The repetition of stitching is truly therapeutic; you can really switch off the voices in your head! It's an activity that allows you to slow down from everyday life and create something beautiful. It’s a simple, no mess, no fuss craft and all you need is a needle, thread and canvas. Oh and scissors. Making a tapestry is about enjoying the process as well as the finished piece. There’s nothing like having something that you have created taking pride of place in your own home, whether it’s a cushion or framed up on the wall. It becomes a work of art that lasts a lifetime.
These kits are suitable for all levels, it just depends what size project you would like to take on. If you're new to it, don't worry. I believe you can do anything you can put your mind to and I'm here to help if you need it.
