We have updated our show page with our show dates for 2017.
The Hochanda live fair in June has now been moved to the Telford International Centre (TF3 4JH). This is an exciting new craft show that has been launched in association with the craft television channel "HOCHANDA" (which stands for the "Home of Crafts, Hobbies And Arts"). The move was due to events beyond the organisers' control, but we are told that the new venue is a modern purpose built exhibition centre with excellent facilities for visitors and easy to find. Even so, we know the change in venue won't suit everyone, but we would love to see you if you are able to get there.
Unfortunately we have had to drop two shows this year. They are the Stitching Sewing and Hobbycrafts show in Glasgow, and the Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate. We are really sad about this – especially the show in Glasgow, a city which we love and a show of which we have many happy memories. But we hope that it will not be too difficult for friends and customers in Scotland to come and see us in Edinburgh in April, when the weather should be a bit kinder.
Details for all our upcoming shows can be found on the Shows page.
There are several new designs including a new set of seaside miniatures, which Meg launched on HOCHANDA craft television on Monday 6th February. These include a beach hut and a Punch and Judy stand to help us all dream of warmer weather.
The designs have now been added to our website and can be seen on our New Designs page.
We also have a new card Summer Flight, which is part of our small card range, and two photo frames, New Baby Boy Photo Frame and New Baby Girl Photo Frame, which would make delightful and special gifts for new parents.
The Nutmeg Guide to Stitching on Paper
We have also produced the Nutmeg Guide to Stitching on Paper which shares many hints and tips. It includes basic instructions on cross-stitch and comes with a little starter kit in the back cover, so it would be suitable for beginners as well as those familiar with stitching on fabric who would like an introduction to stitching on perforated paper.
Spring in Swaledale
If you are anywhere near Swaledale this spring, do come and see us. And if you stay locally there is usually a lot going on, starting in late May and early June with the Swaledale Festival. Reeth has its own agricultural show on 28th August, and Muker (just a few miles up-dale) has a very traditional village show on 6th September, including sheep dog trials.
If you have a non-stitcher in tow you can sit them on our comfy sofa while you look round our showroom, or send them out to look at one of the other craft workshops on site. We also have Tennants, one of the UK's premier auction houses, in the next dale with large permanent displays of art and collectibles, and The Bowes Museum, one of the best museums outside London, a short drive North. Various stately homes, castles and the famous Wensleydale cheese factory are also within easy reach. So it is a good area to break a journey North or South.
We're normally open from 10.00 to 5.00 Monday to Friday and 2.00 till 5.00 on Saturday, although we do have to close when we take the models to the shows.
