You may be enjoying your break for Easter which falls this weekend. We ourselves have shut up shop for the weekend. Many customs have sprung up around Easter, the most important Christian festival. Surprisingly the most widespread customs involve decorating eggs. Here in Scotland we hard boil them, decorate them and then roll them down a steep hill. Of course they soon break but being Scots and unwilling to waste anything, we eat them anyway.
The complete Lanarte Spring Collection is now in stock. As we have come to expect from Lanarte, there's something for everyone ... romantic, colourful and cute. And all with traditional Lanarte quality.
It's getting harder to find black evenweave fabric, especially now that Zweigart have dropped many of their colours. At the same time we are getting more leaflets with attractive designs that only work with a black background. So for those of you with keen eyesight who like to work on black we have found some black 14 count Aida and 28 count Jobelan in black.
Permin of Copehagen have moved on to summer (we wish!) with their new collection and we've selected a few brightly coloured flower squares to frame or decorate cushions and delicate hardanger mats.
We have now begun to stock up with cross-stitch kits by RTO, the Baltic-based maker. Let us know if you want one we haven't got!
Rosewood Manor have come to the end of their Nostalgia series of sampler sections with number twelve which has a few 'extras' - borders and mini charts and lots of ideas for using one or all of the designs.
Roses of Provence is a new cross stitch design from Miribilia in their classic style with ladies in elegant dresses. Their superbly talented designer Nora Corbett has produced another winning umage.
We are pleased to introduce samplers from The Historical Sampler Company with two birth samplers, a wedding sampler, a silver anniversary sampler and a celebration sampler. These are all available in 32 count linen and 16 count Aida in Ecru and would make lovely traditional presents.
We still have some surface embroidery table covers by Permin of Copenhagen from our recent special offer and now we can offer another attractive batch. 100% cotton and finished with a woven border, these will be ready to use when the stamped design is complete. These are all reduced by a further 10% on our already reduced prices while stocks last.
We hope you enjoy your Easter break. Why not have a go at decorating a couple of eggs and rolling them down a hill! There's always room for new traditions.

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.
