Showroom Opening

Although the full lifting of restrictions has been delayed, we are pleased to say that visitors are returning to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and our showroom is now open from 10am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday and 2pm to 4.30pm on Saturday. You are very welcome to drop in if you are staying nearby, out for the day or just passing through. Reeth is only 40 minutes from Scotch Corner and has several small hotels, pubs and B&Bs. It is home to half a dozen craft businesses besides ourselves and even has its own small museum, so it can be a great place to break a journey between Scotland and the South of England.

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 enquiries@3dcrossstitch.co.uk - 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.

Set of DMC coloursSpecial Offer

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).

New designs

Welcome to Reeth postcardFerry to the Isles postcardWe've added two new designs to our range of postcards: Ferry to the Isles (shown left) and Welcome to Reeth (shown right).

The latter features a tiny cottage which houses the Swaledale Museum and all profits from the sale of this postcard go to the museum.

All the new designs for the past year are shown on our New Designs page.

Shows in 2021

This is normally the time that we let you know our show schedule for the upcoming year. But as you know, lots of UK craft shows have been cancelled or postponed, and lots of the smaller shows simply haven't been arranged at all. We are still booked into two shows, and if some of the smaller shows do pop up later in the year and we are free to attend, we'll let you know.

As readers will know the Knit and Stitch show at Rheged did not take place this year. We have also heard that the wonderful Hunton Steam Rally has been postponed to 2022. But we are hopeful that our two Autumn shows will take place as planned:

  • The Creative Craft Show at the NEC Birmingham on 4th to 7th November.
  • The Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate from the 18th to 28th November.

Details for all our planned shows can be found on the Shows page.

Postage

Everyone will have noticed the increase in postage recently, with small parcels in the UK now costing almost double our standard UK postage charge.

Overseas parcels have gone up in price even more and we have reluctantly increased our standard postage and packing rates to £2.95 (UK) and £5.95 (Outside the UK) from 1st March.

This is still a subsidised rate and represents a good deal, especially if you are ordering several items at the same time (which is also good for the environment as it means less packaging and parcel journeys). The good news is that this should enable us to keep our kit prices unchanged, at least until the summer.

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.
