New kits for October

Posted on October 12, 2021
We have 2 new kits going on sale today.

First is Acanthus & Birds cushion with a light background. 

Acanthus & Birds cushion (light)I have been looking forward to this. It does not matter how familiar I am with the colours or how much I study the wools and drawings, I have to wait for the stitching to be completed before actually knowing what effect the background is going to have on the finished cushion.

I am really thrilled as it is almost a new design adding a delicacy to the piece while losing none of the drama.

Ted in BedSecond we have a companion for Bunnies in Bed: 'Ted in Bed' is not printed on the canvas but supplied with very clear coloured symbol charts. It gives the opportunity to experiment with patterns and, if you wish, different stitches.

As it is supplied with 7/8 to the inch rug canvas and worked in simple cross stitch the design grows rapidly. When you get to the quilt you can make it as simple or complex as you wish.

New Acanthus & Birds kits

We are delighted to announce that 2 new kits are ready at last.

Both are additions to the Acanthus & Birds collection, Beth's most recent adaptation of a William Morris design. The wall hanging is now joined by a cushion featuring the 2 peacocks and a large version of the whole design, mirrored to create a spectacular rug or wall hanging.

This little cushion makes rather a strong statement in any room.

It features the mythical peacocks and sweeping acanthus leaves very slightly simplified, on canvas large enough to cover a stool.

This is a chance to show the original Acanthus & Birds bigger and bolder than ever before. Mirrored and stitched in cross stitch on rug canvas, it demonstrates the design at its very best.

Created for the stitcher who likes a challenge, it is a hugely satisfying project but we only have a very limited few kits immediately available.

We have had to remove the option of cheaper shipping for European deliveries, and are now offering Tracked Delivery only.

This is because of delays at the EU border since Brexit, and customers understandably wanting to know where their parcel is.

We hope this is a temporary state of affairs, and we can re-instate the shipping options soon.

The UK is in its third lockdown due to the pandemic, and with it comes inevitable repercussions on both supply and despatch of our kits. There has also been a huge surge in demand, as so many of you have more time to stitch!

Last February we announced our first price increase in many years. However, the pandemic has meant we have been too busy to work out the new prices until now. So from today, most of our kit prices have increased to cover the rising cost of materials.
