About Us

In all the charity art exhibitions that Diana organised over 20 years, the works that ALWAYS sold were the quirky and amusing animal and bird paintings of Catriona Hall.

As a stitcher of some experience, Diana had always longed to make tapestries from Catriona’s paintings. In 2011 she finally got around to it.

Kits for each design, consisting of:

    • The printed canvas
    • The correct quantity of Appleton tapestry wools
    • A photograph of the original painting
    • Easy to follow instructions
    • A needle
    • A helpline

Background Colours

Alternative Background wools can be supplied to suit your colour scheme.  This can be arranged if you send a suitable sample of the colour you require.

Making Up Service

Besides the tapestries we offer a making up service.

We can help you make your finished tapestry into an elegant cushion, or framed picture. For the cushion the service includes stretching your canvas, feather pad and materials. Price from £35 depending on the choice of fabric and edging.
