As the cold nights draw in, it seems a good idea to raise our spirits and Christmas is the ideal way to do it. We plan to have a family Christmas and we hope you can enjoy being with your own family, too.
At the Met is a stunning new design of an Art Deco lady by Mirabilia Designs. We also have bead packs for this design and many other designs by Mirabilia.
Ursula Michael has designed two new Let's for Imaginating and Christmas. Let`s Deck the Halls is a Christmas tree in red and green and Let's be Jolly is a snowman in blues and reds.
Lanarte's fourth(!) collection of the year is now in and includes a fantasy swan design and more stylish ladies. The new Marjolein Bastin kits of flowers and birds are especially popular and are being snapped up.
Somehow we already have a few of Permin`s Spring 2015 Collection. Perhaps they've fallen through a time warp. Whatever the title there's something for everyone with owls, cartoon and realistic, flowers, butterflies and a pair of bridges both striking and simple.
Bothy Threads have been busy as always and we have three new designs in colourful simple style. Funky Street would look lovely in a child's room and the Autumn Owl cartoon will appeal to those who collect the birds in all shapes and sizes. Butterfly Bouquet will make an attractive companion for Heart Bouquet which is already available.
The first of a series of Fabulous Girls from the House of Zandra, Frog Princess is now available from Classic Embroidery with two cute cartoon dogs, Tartan Scotty and Chihuahua Hearts. Click here for Classic's latest offerings.
We've been adding more catalogues to our collections - you can download a PDF version to display on your computer or print out if you prefer.
Our special offer for the month of December is the fabulous fantasy picture Birds of Pardise by Maria van Scharrenburg available in 27 count cotton evenweave fabric or 14 count Aida. Take advantage of this spectacular offer while it's there - half price on our normal discount!. (Price reverts to normal in January 2015).
And finally ... If you've finished getting the Advent Calendar ready, written the cards, decked the halls with boughs of holly and trimmed the tree, and all the myriad other tasks that come at this time of year, remember to take a step back and simply enjoy it. As the song says:
«Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.» (from It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas)

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.
