We all remember playing this traditional game of Ludo as a child and no wonder this  is one of our most popular kits!  It is an innovative mix of Cross Stitch & Blackwork embroidery styles bringing life and structure to the backgrounds of the squares and creating a uniquely beautiful design.

The flexibility of a fabric games board is suited to so many different ways to fit our lifestyles

  • It can be framed or presented on a wooden board under glass to protect your hard-work and the love and passion you put into your stitching
  • It is also foldable for travelling unlike many cardboard versions – we even have a customer who has leather backed her kits for use when camping
  • It is colourfast cotton so can be washed in warm water without running - and irons well
  • The 18 count Aida offers the tension required to provide a flat playing surface for the games pieces – linen can gather more if your tension is not uniform in your stitches

The opportunity to create an Heirloom is here, - why not add a commemorative border to the board and gift to a child as a birthday or maybe christening present instead of a traditional sampler, the child could have it on the wall as a picture until they are old enough to use it to play with. Providing great memories and truly valued present – more details below

How to Personalise your Games Board

We can add a message into the border which can be personalised to celebrate an event or time that is personal to you or the people you wish to create a unique gift for. Marriages, births, anniversaries, special birthdays, prizes etc. the choice is yours.

When you order a personalised kit we can amend the border to include text of your choosing up to 30 characters over 2 rows, please note that a border which contains a message will be a little wider than those that do not.

Obviously bespoke kits require some additional effort in creation so there is a slight price difference between the standard and bespoke options, however we have kept this as low as we can. The price for a customised Full kit or a customised 'Chart Only' is an addition of £15 to the standard price

Please allow an extra week for delivery of bespoke kits and charts.
