Showroom Opening

We are pleased to say that we are planning to reopen our showroom in Reeth from Monday 3rd May. To begin with we will be open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday and 1pm to 4pm Saturday afternoons. But if all restrictions are lifted as planned by the end of June, you may still find us here up to 5pm during the summer months.

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

The three new paper town designs are now on the website: Wedgewood Cottage, Wisteria Chalet and Florian Cottage.

New Designs: Wedgewood Cottage, Wisteria Chalet and Florian Cottage

These little cottages make interesting projects using the natural stiffness of perforated paper to allow the creation of little 3D cottages by cutting, folding and glueing the paper. Each of these tiny buildings has a roof which can be removed allowing it to be used as a box - but you can glue the roof in place if you prefer.

The new designs bring the number of buildings in our paper town range to seven: have a look at all the designs.

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 postopned, and lots of the smaller shows simply haven't been arranged at all. We are still booked into three 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.

But for the moment the only definite bookings to pencil in to your diary are:

  • The Knit and Stitch show at the Rheged centre on the 1st and 2nd of May.
  • 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.

Hunton Steam Rally

We haven't had any booking forms for the craft tent yet, but we can also let you know the provisional date for the wonderful Hunton Steam rally which will hopefully take place on the 11th and 12th of September 2021. This one is for crafters and anyone who is into all things mechanical.

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.
