New Art Deco Kit Range from Janet Granger

 New Art Deco carpet kits to make in needlepoint from Janet Granger 
Do you own a twentieth century style, twelfth scale doll's house or love art deco style miniatures?  Yes? Then you'll love AIM Member Janet Granger's newly released Art Deco carpet kit designs.

There are four kits to collect and they are all to be stitched using tent stitch (like half cross stitch) on 18 count canvas. The carpet kits contain plenty of Appletons crewel wool, clear instructions, a suitable needle, and a colour block chart to count the design from.

Chart packs are also available, for those of you who have lots of thread and canvas already, or who would like to stitch the designs in your own choice of colours - these contain black and white symbol charts.

These kits are available from Janet granger at;
The kits start from £15.50. P&P is £1.75 per order if placed by post (cheques to Janet Granger); p&p online depends on the order total (but free over £40)
