I am interested in embroidery of all kinds, especially miniature needlepoint, which is what I design for a living. I love making full-sized stumpwork pieces, many including goldwork as well.
My website www.janetgranger.co.uk is where all the designs for miniature needlepoint kits for doll’s houses can be found, and bought, if the fancy takes you. I have been running that business since 1996, and have around 200 kits available now.
But on my blog ( http://janetgranger.wordpress.com/ ) you’ll hopefully be able to find out more about what motivates me to design, along with images of stitching in progress (both miniature and ‘full-size’), book reviews, product reviews, tutorials about various aspects of embroidery, etc.
I have been married to Chris since 1993. He helps me with all the technical stuff that needs doing on my website (fortunately!!), although I can manage the blog all by myself :-)
In our ‘previous existences’, he worked as a teacher, and I worked in a library. Until 1999, we lived in Essex, but we then moved to the Peak District, and now live in a peaceful village surrounded by fields (and sheep).
