Welcome to our January 2013 newsletter, and may we start by wishing you a happy and peaceful year.
One of our customers spent last year working one of the incredibly detailed patterns by Heaven and Earth Designs and we just had to show it to you! The finished size of Merlin and Arthur is 91 cm (36 inches) x 53 cm (21 inches) and it was worked on 32 count Belfast linen.
It took 312 days, 8 km of thread, a steady hand and remarkably good eyesight and gave a great deal of pleasure. Other customers have also sent us examples of their work and we hope to build a proper gallery to show them off!
We have a few early releases from Permin's Spring 2013 Collection to add some colour to the dark days of winter - especially the two colourful designs of wine bottle aprons which are very quick to do and can be ready in no time.
Three traditional historical samplers taken from museum pieces will require more time but are immensely rewarding. The watercolour-style picture of poppies certainly reminds us of Summer - something to look forward to on long winter evenings.

Valentines Day is fast approaching, so why not show your loved one that you really care with a hand made card! We stock a range of Valentine themed papercraft products, such as stickers, heart-shaped punches, digital downloads and brads. Or why not try your hand at some quilling? We've just got in a range of quilling paper, and nothing says "I love you" quite so boldly as an intricately fashioned and self-made quilled card. Don't forget to stock up on your card making essentials. For Valentines cards, we recommend the Hero Hues Folded Cards in Blush Mix - great quality cards in pinks and reds, pre-folded in packs of 12 and including matching envelopes. And where would you be without those most useful of products, our range of various adhesives!

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.
