New Additions to Janet Granger's 'Summer Roses' Kit Range

Pretty floral stitching for the mini dining table!

There's a couple of new kits on Janet Granger's website this week - a table runner, and matching placemats, which are both to be stitched on 32 count silk gauze. They are in the popular 'Summer Roses' series - deep red and soft gold roses, on a pale cream background - suitable for many eras and styles of dollhouse. Each kit contains stranded cotton, a generous piece of silk gauze, clear instructions and stitch diagrams, a suitable needle and a colour block chart to count the design from. When finished, the runner measures 3 1/2 long x 7/8 inch wide. The placemats each measure 1 3/8 wide by 1 inch high, with enough materials to make four per pack.

Each kit is available from the What's New page of Janet's website

The table runner kit is £12.95, and the placemats kit is £14.95 (to make four)

There is a FREE ONLINE TUTORIALS page at so that you can see how easy it is to create these mini kits.
