We hold canvases in many colours and counts - aida, binca, hardanger, jobelan, linda - as well as linen and embroidery, tapestry and rug canvas.  We also stock dissolvable fabric and waste canvas.

Our threads - for hand and machine - include silk, cotton, linen, rayon and metallic - as well as fancies, such as slubbed or mixed fibre: Madeira is our main, but not our only, source.  We stock Appletons tapestry and crewel wools.  Also quilting wool, Paterna Persian yarn, dishcloth cotton.

We have hoops and frames for embroidery quilting and tapestry - hand-held, table and floor models and for machining.  And, of course, needles, scissors, latch and locker hooks and, for rugs, rug hooks and ruggers.

Kits range from counted thread and blackwork to tapestry and rugs: they include Bothy Threads, Historical Sampler Co and local West Wales designs.   Our large stock of books includes many pattern charts, free style embroidery, patchwork templates, etc.

We keep needlework boxes.
