We are now open 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday and 1pm to 4pm on most Saturdays. There is no need to make an appointment but we will ask you to use the hand-gel before touching anything and to wear a mask if you are able to do so. We took the opportunity of lockdown to change the layout of the showroom, so it looks a bit different. But we still have the comfy sofa inside and a nice bench seat outside for friends and family who aren't into cross-stitch.
Mail and Telephone Orders
Thank you to all those who have been ordering by phone, e-mail and online. Your support has been vital at a time when all our shows have been cancelled and our showroom closed. The good news is that delays on parcels seem to have eased considerably, though you do still need to allow a little extra time especially for parcels going outside the UK. You can order via this website, on 01748 884926 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org - tell us what you want and we will send you a Pay Pal payment request which you can settle either with a PayPal account or with a card.
Many stitchers have been ordering materials online to keep their projects going during lockdown and we have been selling lots of perforated paper and DMC thread. In response to demand we have also started stocking the 35 new DMC colours (nos 1 to 35). If you would like a full set of the new colours for your stash we have an offer on the whole set of 35 colours for just £29 (plus £2 p&p).
Snowy roof tops, carol singing in the frosty air and a little girl in a pinafore - what does that remind you of? This range of six Victorian style Christmas cards recall earlier times and traditional celebrations. They are designed to enjoy - both by the stitcher and by the recipient! These cards are available in our Small De-Luxe Greetings Cards section.
New Miniature Building and New Keepsake Box
Nutmeg Company kits are generally designed to challenge stitchers and help them develop their skills, but the Black Eyed Susan Box has more extensive instructions, both for stitching and assembly, to help beginners and anyone who feels unsure about taking the plunge!
Black Eyed Susan flowers ramble across the top and sides, but the design is not complicated and is worked on 14-count aida - easy to see and work with. Step-by-step photographs and text talk you through each stage of assembly.
Stitched in tasteful shades of red, grey and cream, this up-market milliners shop is ideal whether you just want a beret or are after a lovely hat for a wedding.
All the new designs for the past year are shown on our New Designs page.
Farewell to Some Older Designs
Sadly, some of our older designs need to be withdrawn from our range because we are running out of particular colour fabrics used in the kits and unable to source suitable alternatives.
Sad to say our attempts to get the summer village miniatures back into production have not been successful. We had hoped that an American company could supply the fabric they need but we have been let down. So you will see these designs have now been removed from the website. We do have a few scraps of the original fabric left though, so do e-mail email@example.com if there is a design you are desperate to add to your collection - but we cannot guarantee being able to help. The Smugglers Rest is not affected and all our other miniature building designs remain available as normal.
Our last show standing, the Creative Craft show due to take place at the NEC in November has now also been cancelled. We have rebooked the for next year so do make a note in your diaries for 4th to 7th November 2021. The craft show companies aren't completely shut down however. As well as planning events for next year they are also arranging various on-line events. We have agreed to participate in "Beyond the Knitting and Stitching Show" which launches over the weekend of 6 to 8 November. So watch this space.
Details for all our planned shows can be found on the Shows page.
A big thank you to everyone who ordered a Summer In Swaledale cross-stitch post card kit. As regular readers will know, our part of Yorkshire was hit by a flash flood in July 2019 and many homes and businesses in Swaledale and Wensleydale were flooded. We have already been able to make two donations to the flood relief appeal and although sales of this little Swaledale postcard have been affected by having the showroom closed, now we are open again we hope to be able to make a further donation to the flood relief fund at the end of the summer. This is necessary because, although life for most people in the dale has returned to normal, there are still a few families who are waiting to get back to their homes.
Sign up for our Newsletter
We 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.
