We have now closed our showroom completely in line with Government advice and all our spring shows are cancelled. But we will continue to provide a mail order service for as long as we are able to do so because we know that activities like stitching are important for people who are housebound. At present parcels are getting though, though in London and other badly affected areas they are taking longer then normal to arrive. 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). The most important thing however is that you stay well. As the Prime Minister keeps saying, we will get through this.
Our designer, Meg, has been working hard on some new designs some of which were launched on Hochanda Craft TV on Monday 20th January. The designs stitched on aida fabric include two new Winter Village buildings - Pine Cone Cottage and the Holly Bush Inn (pictured right).
Meg has also been busy with new kits stitched on perforated paper. Many of these were previously only available in gift sets or as charts in our e-book. One of them is the Nessie card and gift box pictured right. This were featured on Hochanda - but there are several other designs which we simpy ran out of time to get ready for the show.
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Sadly, some of our older designs need to be withdrawn from our range because we are running out of particular colour fabrics used in the kits and unable to source suitable alternatives.
The most important change is that from 1st February we will be withdrawing most of our signature summer village set of miniatures while we re-stitch them on new bases. The Castle Inn, The Village Shop, Keeper's Cottage, Foxglove Cottage, The Chateau, The Dower House, Dales Cottage and The Church will be back again later this year in their new guise.
But we are taking this opportunity to refresh the range and Cottage Row, The Old Rectory and Windrush Cottage will not return, leaving space to add new buildings in the years ahead. So if you need any of these kits to complete your set, please order before 1st February. After that they won't appear on the website - although if you e-mail us we may be able to help provided there is enough fabric left.
Thank you to everyone who supported us at the Creative Craft show in Glasgow at the start of March. The common sense, kindness and warmth of our customers in Scotland was much appreciated and we hope you all enjoyed the show. We have now heard that all the remaining spring shows that we had booked have been cancelled.
We have got a couple of shows booked in November. While the organisers are hoping that they these late Autumn shows will be able to go ahead this isn't certain and we will try and keep the details on this page up to date.
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 and many homes and businesses in Swaledale and Wensleydale were flooded. We have been donating all profits from this little kit to the flood relief fund and thanks to you we have now been able to send another £165 to the Two Ridings Community Foundation flood appeal.
