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 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 printed table toppers for surface embroidery
are very popular and we have a special range of them hemmed and printed with floral designs with an extra reduction while stocks last
