The latest design from Mirabilia is the fairy tale princess Rapunzel standing on her tower with her long, long hair coiled around her. Another stylish pattern from the great designer Nora Corbett.
Number nine and number ten in Blackbird Designs' Garden Club SeriesThe Gardener and How does the Lily Grow have arrived. There are another two still to come to make up the large composite sampler.
Bothy Threads have a lovely new series of wildlife kits from the beautiful and witty watercolours of Hannah Dale of Wrendale Designs. Don't worry about all the background spots because they are pre-printed on the fabric and not stitched (phew!).
Also from Bothy are two more kits in the Fairy Tales Series :- Cinderella, complete with the Ugly Sisters, the pumpkin coach, glass slipper and Prince Charming, and Snow White with the Wicked Stepmother and poison apple, and of course the seven dwarfs.
Lanarte have released their third 2016 Collection featuring an elegant lady, lots of flowers and a very pretty nature design by Marjolein Bastin.
Anchor and maia
We are sad to say that we have been told by Coats Crafts that the UK company is winding down. The company was founded in the eighteenth century in Paisley, Scotland and grew and merged until it became a world leader. The parent company MEZ in Germany have made arrangements to distribute their products through a UK wholesaler and we understand that all existing products, stranded cottons, tapestry wools, Anchor and Maia kits will still be available. We hope to have a clearer picture by September.
This Month's Free Pattern
To celebrate the summer this month's free pattern is Coreopsis a bright yellow summer flower.
With the Olympics just starting in Brazil, our sympathies go out to the athletes who have to compete in the tropical heat of Rio. We offer this quote to them: «The pleasure of jogging and running is rather like that of wearing a fur coat in Texas in August: the true joy comes in being able to take the damn thing off»Joseph Epstein (b 1937)

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.
