Embroidery Clearance – Goldwork threads added

Over the last few days I have added some goldwork thread bundles to the website. There are only 1 or 2 available of most bundles, but we have part reels of all the threads that make up Variety Pack #1 (pictured below). It’s anyone’s guess how much thread is on each reel!

We are open to offers for the rest of this stock, so if you are interested in a bulk purchase please ring us for a chat on 01254 236049.

Variety Pack #1 £16.00

Embroidery Clearance – Mettler and Gutermann threads

I have just added some mixed packs of threads to the website. There are Mettler Metrosene Plus, Mettler Quilting, and Gutermann Polyester threads.

Most of them are in packs of 22 x 100m reels for £20.00, that’s just 91p per reel! You will see from the stock levels that we don’t have many left.

The photo attached to each product shows the colours you will get, and there is a breakdown of the contents (using the branded colour numbers) under the main description.

Here are a couple of samples, but you should head over to the Embroidery Clearance page to see them all. Just follow this link https://www.halfpenneys.co.uk/product-category/emb-clearance/fabric-wools/

More lines added to Embroidery Clearance

I have added some extra things to the embroidery clearance section to make way for more bead stock!

The new categories are “embroidery accessories and tools” and “wools and fabrics”. There are some absolute bargains for embroiderers, including bundles of DMC Medici wool , Aida, Linens, and water soluble backings.

Have a rummage and see what you can find. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

Colour descriptions for seed beads

I have completed the colour family update for the size 6, 8, 11 and 15 seed beads. You may remember that I completed the Delica beads a little while ago.

Where the colour name is something like turquoise, rose, or seafoam for example, then a search by colour may not have found them. I have added a colour family to the description, so that searches will find them. So, for example if you now put blue in the search, then turquoise beads will also be found, and a search for pink will find rose ones.

I hope that you find this a useful feature when you are looking for beads by colour.

You may also notice an alternative reference that I have included in the description. Some of you may recognise this number and it is the number given by our wholesaler and may help with global searches by reference number.

It’s party time for my penguin!

Someone is looking forward to the end of the lockdown, and has his party hat on.

It’s Thumbs up for your postie!

Let’s not forget how much we rely on our postie these days and Royal Mail are asking everyone to put their thumbs up to say thank you.

We are sending out orders every day and I created some stickers that we can put on the parcels . Like a lot of people I’m sure, we are also ordering more online at the moment so, well, I just had to, didn’t I?   Had to what? I hear you ask. Well, bead it of course!

The original says “Your Postie”, but then I thought – well if it’s going in our window it should be “Our Postie”, so I revised the pattern and have now made both available as patterns.

You do need to be experienced with odd count peyote (or brick stitch) as the pattern comprises a colour chart and peyote word map only. There are no instructions for peyote stitch.

Patterns are free to download UNTIL 30th June 2020, after which time they will be £2.

Printed copies are £2 each (our usual postage applies).
