Needlework & Knitting


The first floor at Audlem Mill is dedicated to needlework, knitting and related crafts.


Needlework Kits

A wide variety of cross stitch, goldwork, tapestry, blackwork, longstitch, crewel work, stumpwork, latch hook, dolls house soft furnishing, and other kits.


We also have the full Abacus Designs range of nearly 200 cross stitch kits, of which about half are of canal and waterway subjects, and also canal related kits from other designers such as Heritage Crafts, Cambriana and Classic Embroidery, including canal maps.


Good range of embroidery hoops and plastic frames - the best frames on the market, we believe.
