John Clayton and Heritage Crafts have produced another lovely lady in the Elegance series - Louisa - who is making an entrance in a green silk evening gown.
After a request from a customer for large long stitch kits we now have Tulips by Anchor which measures 65 by 40 cms, 26 by 16 inches.
Bothy Threads' seams are bursting with new ideas and new kits Foods of Britain is a larger project full of interest; there's a new Noah's Ark birth sampler; and three more wedding samplers with Love Blossoms a heart shaped tree trunk and a multitude of flowers.
Also new from Bothy, Santoro`s Mirabelle Collection is a portfolio of enchanting images, elegant and sophisticated. The wistful figures are exquisitely detailed, embellished with stylised floral motifs, vibrant butterflies, brilliant birds and other intriguing imagery to create romantic and fascinating artworks. As with Gorjuss you will see these images on all sorts of stylish stationery, bags and accessories and now you can have your own cross stitch pictures. The first four in the series are Butterfly, If Only, Adrift and Devotion.
They've also been working overtime at Imaginating and among other things have introduced two more of the popular «Let's» designs this time of visiting Grandpa`s or Grandma`s.
The latest stunning Mirabilia lady is Cassiopeia, the queen from Greek mythology punished by the gods for her vanity.
This month we're featuring Spring charts many of which are from sets of all four seasons.
We have been making changes to our website which we hope will go live in April. We hope you'll find it a neater, tidier layout and easier to use too!
And finally ... our title this month refers to two of the most famous April Fools' pranks: San Serriffe was a fictitious holiday island (led by General Pica!) reported in the Guardian in 1977; 20 years earlier the BBC had reported on the «Swiss Spaghetti Harvest», a bumper crop for that year due to the mild winter. Both these articles fooled many thousands of people who called in to ask for more details.

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.
