ED, New Zealand

"I just want to tell you that I am so very pleased with your service. So far I have received my orders in 5 business days and I live in Canada. I can't get that kind of service in Canada or the U.S. I also find your prices very competitive and will definitely be shopping at your online store again. "

"Hello Arts & Designs, Thank you for your wonderful service, sourcing a Riolis pattern (Irises - Ref: ...) for me, which arrived here in New Zealand today. Your fabulous 'point of difference' is your extremely quick delivery once a kit has been ordered and is really appreciated. You are also great to deal with, replying to emails so quickly and the parcels are always very securely wrapped. I will be certainly recommending you to others! Thanks again,"

CR, Shropshire, United Kingdom

"Thank you very much indeed for the quick delivery. I just had to write to say how much I am enjoying doing the cross stitch "Red Roses in a Vase" by Luca-S. This is the first time I have ever done a cross stitch by this company and it won't be the last. The shading of the roses is beautiful. "

JL, Dumfries and Galloway, United Kingdom

"OH.MY.GOSH!! I am beyond impressed with my recent cross-stitch purchase from your company! In every way, I can only register complete delight! The speedy delivery (barely a week from order to in my mailbox - here in the Canadian Rockies) to the design itself (totally adorable - Animal Alphabet - Bothy Threads - a gift I'm creating) to the detailed, easy-to-navigate instructions and pattern (two versions!) - all I can say is wow. Most impressive is the organization of the kit itself, especially the threads. Talk about a wonderful treat: to have everything quite literally at my fingertips so all I needed to do was add an embroidery hoop, find a comfortable chair Thank you for your exceptional service and product. I'll definitely be a repeat customer. All the best,"

CM, Alberta, Canada

"Thank you for sending my cross stitch so promptly. It arrived to-day."

I have received the kits.

They are so cute.

Thank you very much."

YF, Japan

"Wow! Thank you so much. I placed an order last week and have received my three kits today in New Zealand, a week later! I am impressed with the speed of delivery and your prices which are significantly lower that what I can get the kits for here. I'm hoping for a weekend of miserable weather so I can start stitching! I'm looking forward to placing more orders with you in the future. Thank you from a very happy customer!"

I just wanted to let you know that I received the kit I ordered today and it is beautiful! Thanks for the terrific quick shipping - I did not expect it to make it here before Christmas. I can't wait to get started on it, the finished product will be gorgeous. And thank-you also for the additional chart included - it is delightful. I will be on the look out for more of your products. Thanks again, and best wishes for the festive season, Kind regards,"
