These aren't your run-of-the-mill kits; we're talking about 100% pure wool yarn and hand-printed cotton canvas that's as accurate as a map to treasure. It's the difference between a meal cooked with love at home and a fast-food takeaway.

And for those who appreciate a good presentation, these kits come in a gloss carrier. It's not just about making a great first impression; it's practical too. Ever found yourself halfway through a project and lost your needle, or the yarn gets tangled? With these kits, everything has its place, making your crafting experience as smooth as silk.

What's Included in Your First Tapestry Kit

Diving into your first tapestry kit can feel a bit like opening a box of magic. Inside, you'll find everything you need to start your tapestry journey.

Picture this: a canvas that's hand-printed with such precision, it's like the canvas is whispering instructions to you. Then there's the yarn – oh, the yarn! Spun and dyed in Yorkshire; it's like each strand holds a piece of the landscape within it.

But it's not just about what's in the box. It's the promise that comes with it – a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

It's like having a safety net as you walk the tightrope of a new craft. For those who have ever felt frustrated working under artificial light, there's a colour chart that can help. This chart acts like night vision, guiding you stitch by stitch through your project.

Choosing the Right Kit for You

Ever stood in a needlework shop, overwhelmed by choice, yet unsure of what's right for you? It's a common tale.

But here's a nugget of wisdom: not all tapestry kits are created equal. Brigantia Needlework offers a spectrum, from tent stitch tapestry cushions to quick cross stitch tapestry cushions, each tailored to different skill levels and preferences.

For those who lean towards the traditional, tent stitch tapestry might just be your calling. It's like choosing the path less travelled, offering a finish that's both detailed and robust, without demanding an eternity to complete.

And then there's the quick cross-stitch tapestry for those who prefer the fast lane. It's designed for speed and ease, perfect for those moments when your fingers itch to create but time is of the essence.



The Brigantia Difference

In a sea of tapestry and needlepoint kits, what sets Brigantia apart? It's all in the details – the hand-printed canvas and the pure wool yarns. Imagine a world where every stitch is pre-ordained, where guesswork is left at the door. This is the realm of Brigantia Needlework.

Their canvases are a testament to precision, making sure that your needle knows exactly where to go. It's a bit like having a GPS for your tapestry journey.

And then there's the yarn – not just any yarn, but one spun from the finest fleece, treated with the care it deserves. It's the kind of yarn that glides through your fingers, making each stitch a pleasure.

In a world where quality often takes a backseat to quantity, Brigantia stands out as a beacon of excellence.

The Pure Wool Yarns

Let's talk yarn. Not the kind you find in bargain bins, but premium, pure wool yarn that's been spun with care in Yorkshire. The tapestry kit comes with a special thread.

This thread perfectly matches the canvas. If you use more than one thread in your needle, it's like bringing a book to a movie. It's not needed.

This yarn isn't just about aesthetics; it's about performance. Stored in hanks rather than tension-inducing cones, it keeps its lush texture and coverage, making sure your tapestry feels as good as it looks. It's a small detail, but in the world of needlework, it's these nuances that elevate a project from good to breathtaking.

Unravelling the Threads: Your Tapestry and Needlework FAQs

What is the difference between tapestry and Needlepoint?


Think of tapestry as the grand landscape of woven stories, where each thread weaves a larger picture on a loom. Needlepoint, on the other hand, is like the detailed brushstrokes on a canvas, with each stitch creating intricate designs on a pre-made fabric. Tapestry is the epic saga, and needlepoint is the novella that captivates with precision.

What is the difference between tapestry and embroidery?

Embroidery is the art of adding flair to fabric, where your needle dances across a piece, adding accents, details, and decorations. Tapestry? It's the whole show, the fabric itself coming to life with each thread. While embroidery dresses up the fabric, tapestry builds it from the ground up.

Where should you start a tapestry?

Dive into your tapestry adventure from the middle! Yes, you heard that right. Starting at the center ensures your design grows evenly, keeping the tension just right and the excitement high. It's like the heart of your tapestry, pumping life outwards to the edges.

How to do a tapestry stitch?

The tapestry stitch, or half cross stitch, is your trusty sidekick. Picture this: your needle scoots under the fabric, emerging a hero, then dives back down, leaving a trail of yarn behind. Keep it consistent, with the stitch always leaning the same way, and watch as your tapestry comes alive, one stitch at a time. It's like dotting the i's and crossing the t's, but way more fun.
