[09.11.13] Scarlett and Hannah are the latest additions to our Elegance Miniatures range by John Clayton.
Hannah looks very elegant in her beautifully coordinated hat and dress, and Scarlett, who looks ready for both Christmas and cold weather.
[30.10.13] When artist Karen Carter approached us with her designs we just had to put them into cross stitch!
These are two of the first four Cross Stitch Critters. (You may not know this, but the word 'critter' was used in Shakespearean England). These are all worked on coloured 14 count aida, use whole crosses only with simple outlining and are great fun to stitch. They are ideal for children's rooms and older children could stitch them themselves. You can see all four here.
[16.10.13] Some of our popular Little Friends range are now available as coaster kits.
These are each worked on 14 count aida, and the kit includes a square coaster, cottons, fabric and needle.
[09.10.13] We're delighted to show you our second range of cross stitch Christmas cards, this time by Sue Hill.
These are lovely 'gentle' designs with very effective use of colour. They were put into cross stitch from Sue Hill's paintings by Michaela Learner, who designed our first set of Christmas cards. Each card measures 6" x 8" and the kits come with 14 count antique white aida. They are available with red or green cards, and you can see them here.
[08.10.13] October sees two new additions to Peter Underhill's Peter's Farm range.
'Pigs in Blankets' shows two pigs looking nice and cosy under their bright blankets, while 'Christmas Pony' has a really mischievous look on his face and doesn't seem to mind wearing his Christmas hat.
There is also a new addition to the Little Friends range.
[02.09.13] 'Catching Snowflakes' and 'Christmas Kittens' are the latest additions to Peter Underhill's Cats Rule! range.

[13.07.13] We're delighted to present a brand new addition to our Elegance range!
Gabriella is the first full-length design in the best-selling John Clayton Elegance range. This timeless, classical lady is wearing a shell-pink gown as she poses against a stone balustrade.
[12.07.13] 'Owl' and 'Red Squirrel' are brand new additions to our Little Friends range.
This range contains very appealing designs which are quick to do. They contain very few fractional stitches and so are excellent for introducing these stitches to stitchers who may not have met them before. They are also perfect for stitchers who would like to try working on evenweave fabric for the first time and they make a great small project to take away on holiday.
[06.06.13] John Clayton has added three new ladies to his Elegance Miniatures range - Fleur, Claire and Rebecca. Once again, John has perfectly captured the original Elegance designs in miniature.
John is currently working on two new Elegance designs, watch this space!
[24.05.13] We hope that you will like these two new Toffee Bear designs from Sue Hill. 'Toffee with Kite' shows our dear little bear flying a kite, helped by his friends, the blue butterflies. This makes a gorgeous picture for a child's room. In 'Toffee with Heart' he is holding a lovely bright heart, an attractive design for a special birthday, wedding, engagement, etc.
[21.05.13] We're delighted to introduce a new range by John Clayton - Elegance Miniatures. John has taken the heads and shoulders from the original Elegance ladies and reduced them in size without losing any of the detail. We are sure that they will appeal to stitchers who want something which is quick to do, but is also very attractive.
[21.05.13] We have now added an online ordering facility to our product catalogue. Our most popular ranges are now available, and the rest will be added over the coming days.
