New Kits from Vervaco, Merejka, Bothy Threads and Heritage Crafts
Patterns and Charts from Shannon Christine, Riverdrift House, Lesley Teare and Nora Corbett
Fluffy Floss from Rainbow Gallery
Vervaco`s first 2018 collection has finally arrived in the UK. We've selected the popular sepia designs and a colourful birth record. The whole collection is available to view in our online catalogues so please do let us know if you'd like any of the kits you see there.
We now have kits from another European company - Merejka of Poland. Merejka have some lovely floral designs, landcapes, children, fantasy and cute ethnic cartoons.
Bothy Threads have released their summer collection with more Wrendale Designs kits, four colourful stylised ladies from the artwork of Mila Marquis and three pretty fairies from the artwork of Sue Waddicor.
The latest Elegance lady from Heritage Crafts is John Clayton's Emily who has a floral dress and a circle of flowers in her long blonde hair. A great project for hazy summer days that will warm you right through the winter.
We have some exciting new designs by various artists ...
Shannon Christine is the publisher of patterns by Shannon Wasilief, a Canadian designer, who has lovely ladies finished with metallic gold floss and beads.
Lesley Teare is a well known UK designer who has contributed many designs to magazines. We have chosen some of her blackwork designs, angels and fairies.
The two new Nora Corbett Butterfly Misses, Miss Black Swallowtail and Miss Aurora Morpho flew off the shelves in May. We will be re-ordering as soon as possible so please let us know if you would like either of them so that we can be sure to order enough for everyone.
If you're looking for Rainbow Gallery Wisper Floss, then you've come to the right place as it's now in stock! Wisper is fluffy mohair floss and many patterns now use it in white. For the more adventurous, we have a few other shades, too.
The Bargain Basement has Cats and Dogs kits at half price for the month of June.
And Finally ...
We're off on holiday (vacation) this month and as usual we'll have our 'skeleton staff' to look after your orders. Kits, charts and most supplies (except those that need special packing) will still be available.
Let's hope it doesn't 'rain cats and dogs' in Brittany, France - where we're going.
Our title is from a poem by the American poet James Whitcomb Riley (1849 1916) who wrote mostly in his Midwest dialect.
Tell you what I like the best --
'Long about knee-deep in June,
'Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, -- some afternoon
Like to jes' git out and rest,
And not work at nothin' else!
We wish you a warm, happy and rain-free June wherever you may be!

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.
