Not so much that's new - it's holiday/vacation season and we've been away ourselves!
Part of our trip took us to the Forêt de Brocéliande in central Brittany, France in which lies a magical area with an enchanted spring ...
Unfortunately we didn't see any fairies. Perhaps a little vin de pays would have helped.
New Designs from Nora Corbett
Congratulations to Nora Corbett of Mirabilia Designs now celebrating her silver anniversary - designing for 25 years. Her beautiful designs of fairies, mermaids and ladies have given and are continuing to give great pleasure to many stitchers around the world.
We have the anniversary design Lady Mirabilia with embellishment pack and all the necessary materials. With an Art Deco look and a touch of silver, she is a very elegant lady. Each pattern comes with an exclusive silver butterfly not available separately. Sadly, all of these have been snapped up but we hope to have some more very soon.
Alice (of Wonderland fame) in ribbons and lace with her own pocket watch is another new Mirabilia design (from Nora Corbett of course).
Last month we tried to order some of the other new Nora Corbett designs like Butterfly Fairy, Lady of the Flag, the Queen Mermaid, the Seaside Kingdom and the fairy Moon but Wichelt cancelled our order. We really don't know why we (and other retailers) weren't able to get these patterns given the hoo-ha about the 25th Anniversary.
New Kits from Lanarte and Vervaco
The second Lanarte Collection of 2018 is now available. We have chosen an attractive lady and flowers by Marjolein Bastin and you can see all the new designs in the Catalogue.
The second Vervaco 2018 Collection is also now available. We have chosen some designs in shades of grey (one with a splash of red) and a sepia design.

Important - Please Read This! (Latest update 23rd May 2020)
We know how much your crafts matter to you and so we are continuing to work for as long as we can.
The delivery services have been inundated with online purchases and this has led to backlogs of international mail ("It's like two Christmasses at once!").
We are of course wholly dependent on the delivery services and the delays are highly variable - some international (non-UK) packages have taken 2 months to arrive and some have arrived in normal time.
So we ask for your continuing patience in waiting for your package to arrive.
Deliveries to almost all countries are continuing but please visit this page and check your country's status.
We hope you are safe and comfortable and able to enjoy your stitching in these difficult times.
