Embroidery, tapestry and cross-stitch have been used to tell stories, embellish garments and decorate our homes since ancient times and have given hours of pleasure in the process. Today they are recognised as a source of wellbeing, a welcome respite from our hectic lives. 

With our extensive selection of kits and how-to books, we cater for beginners and dedicated hobbyists, while our vast range of silks and wools, needles, base fabrics and hoops provide everything you need to make your own creations.

In our monthly Heritage Workshops we invite you to learn about the history of these pastimes whilst honing your skills or learning new ones. Click the blue button below for programme and booking information.
