A very warm welcome to Jolly Red! All of our kits are designed and assembled in converted farm buildings in Somerset, England.

Jolly Red is an independent tapestry company, based in converted dairy buildings in Somerset (the South West of England). Jolly Red is run by designer Kelly Fletcher. The company was set up in 1993 by Kelly, shortly after her graduation from the Royal College of Art in London. Having trained as a tapestry weaver, Kelly was offered many wool-based commissions, including one to create a needlepoint design for Ehrman Tapestry. Having noticed the absence of any colourful kits in the UK's shops at that time, Kelly set about creating a small range of kits under the banner of Jolly Red.

Since those early days Jolly Red has grown considerably, and in 2008 boasts 75 designs across its tapestry and cross stitch ranges.

Kelly still creates all of the tapestry designs herself, working in a very low-tech 'pencil and paper kind of a way'. We are delighted that, wherever you are in the world, you can see Jolly Red's designs thanks to the internet, a high-tech phenomenom with which we are (very) slowly getting to grips!...........

Standard Making Up - Cushions

This service includes stretching your finished canvas (whatever shape it's in - none has ever defeated us!), supply of fabric, and making up with piping and a concealed zip in the back of the cushion.

Please contact us by telephone or email if you would like to see fabric samples, as there are too many to show on the website. Don't forget to mention the name/description of the design so we know which colours to send.

Mitred Edges

Sometimes a cushion can benefit from having an extra border around the design. Please specify the width of border you need if you'd like a mitred edging - enclose a diagram if it's complicated. The more detailed the information is that you can give us, the quicker we will be with your making up.


We stretch the canvas, and make up with a fabric border around the outer edge of the teacosy, and along the lower edge. They also have a hanging loop, and wadding between the fabric layers. Customers usually choose a checked outer fabric with contrast plain fabric on the inside.

Stockings - Please get them to us by early November at the latest!!

The stockings are made with a fabric border and hanging loop, contrast lining (or a close colour if you prefer), with a layer of wadding in between. Choose from the following options, don't forget to put a note in with your Stocking to let us know how you'd like yours to be made up!
