Embroidery Clearance – kits added

As well as the needles and pins, I have now added a selection of embroidery and cross stitch kits to this clearance page.

These kits have been in storage for a while so packaging may be damaged. These kits have been discounted by 50-60% and you can still get free postage if you spend over £15.00. This can be a mixture of beads and embroidery.

Happy New Year

As we welcome the new year, Gordon and I will be doing some more clearing of embroidery stock, to make room for more beads.

All items are new and unused, but packaging may have suffered a little during storage, so they are being offered at a very low price. This means that we make space and you make savings!

At the moment, it’s just needles and pins that are listed, but I know we will have linens, aida and other fabrics, as well as pre-printed cross stitch fabrics coming soon.

So, if you do any embroidery or cross stitch as well as your beading, keep your eyes on the Embroidery Clearance page over the coming months to see what is available.

New beads for December

We have added 1 new size 11 seed beads and 4 new size 11 Delica beads to our range this month.

Anyone who has seen our Delica display will know that we have them in number order. Gordon had great fun fitting DB007 into the 1st row and moving ALL of the others along!

Changes to our references for Delica Beads

Our Delica bead numbers are the same as those used by Miyuki, and have had HD in front, but this is now changing to simplify your use of the search function on the website .

Over the coming days, we will be changing all the description codes to the same DB prefix that Miyuki use. This will be done as quickly as possible to minimise confusion. Please note that to avoid waste, pack labels will only be changed when we need to re-print them, so if you order DB001, the label on the pack you receive may still say HD001.

This great design is also available as a kit and although stocks are very limited at the moment, I have got beads on their way to make up more! The kit comes complete with instructions, bead map, working chart, needle, thread, all the Delica beads needed, the little bell and wadding.

New kit for Halloween

Festive Tea Lights 2 is my latest design for Halloween and is available as a pattern for £9.95 or full kit for £22.50. The kit does not include an LED tea light. Patterns are available to download or you can request a printed copy (normal postage charges apply).

The main tea light cover is the same design as Festive Tea Lights 1, so if you already have this, then you can buy the Add-on pattern that just explains how to make the spider and web.
