We are trying to get to new places with our models and kits this year. We've recently attended the excellent Textiles East Fair outside Cambridge and we have now booked into two more local shows this summer. We will be in the craft tent at the Appleby show on 8th August, and at the Hunton Steam Gathering on the 8th and 9th of September. These shows are ideal if you have a partner who likes country shows or steam engines, as they will enjoy the main show while you enjoy the craft tent. Hope to see you there!
Details for all our upcoming shows can be found on the Shows page.
Last year Meg designed some cute cross stitch photo-frames for new baby boys and girls. But customers have told us that by the time they find out whether the baby is a boy or girl, there isn't usually enough time to stitch these frames.
But the design itself doesn't include the word "new", it just has space for the baby's name, making these projects brilliant for 1st or 2nd birthday pictures. So we have decided to rename the kits without the word new and in the meantime we are selling the existing stock with the old packaging at the very special price of £13.95 while stocks last.
New Designs and Products for 2018
The new designs which were launched on Hochanda Craft TV in December are now available on the website. They include Penguin Hall box, complete with penguins decking their hall ready for Christmas, and a Christmas Candles gift bag to match the Christmas Candles card (shown right).
There are four new cards, the Castle, the Country Cottage, the Windmill and the Church.
We now have three new perforated paper colours in stock: Pink Frost (very pale pink), Violet Starlight (white with a background of violet stars - shown right) and Light Granite (Granite effect with mossy green and very dark green highlights). To give you an idea how these can be used: Pink Frost provides the walls for Rose Tree Cottage in our new Paper Town range, and Violet Starlight provides the background in the Sleigh Ride Christmas card. Light Granite will appear in due course in new designs in Meg's new Paper Town range.
All the new designs for the past year are shown on our New Designs page.
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.
Sign up for our Newsletter
We plan to send out one regular news e-mail each New Year with our show schedule for the year ahead and a maximum of three other news e-mails during the year letting you know when new designs are out or if we have a special offer on the website.
