"Hi Just wanted to say big THANK YOU. On 4 November I ordered a document holder for my needlework stand. It was delvered on Saturday. That is incredibly good service. I thought to myself that I would have to wait until the following week. Like most stitchers I am very impatient to crack on so it was great to get my item so quickly. I will definitely be back and I will be telling people about you. Keep up the good work Regards "

"Hi, Just want to say thank you. I just received my package yesterday, just in time for the delivery aims given to me. Generally, I'm very satisfied with the cross-stitch kits from John Clayton except for the colour (it appear much lighter that shown). It has a big, easy to read chart with clear instructions given. And thanks again for the free chart by Anne Peden as it was a pleasant surprise for me. Regards,"
