Diana Fernsby is the owner of Fernsby Hall Tapestry Kits, which use the designs of painter Catriona Hall (www.catabox.co.uk) to create charming, quirky images of portly creatures including hares, lurchers and unicorns. Diana has been a stitcher all her life and has known Catriona since she was a child; the two of them have created a wonderful range of kits which use an earthy palette ranging through strong terracottas, browns, rusts, greys, yellows, greens and blues. Diana offers lessons in stitching the kits and colours can be altered to customers specifications.
