Hope you are well? Its that time of year again, and I think most of us will be doing our shopping online this year? There are two weeks left before the shop closes for the Festive season and you will find some season specials and new items in the shop:
Monochrome Embroidery Kits
We managed to get enough DMC thread together to produce a few more kits, but unfortunately, that will be the last of them for some time.
As you are probably all aware there is a worldwide shortage of DMC stranded cotton, due to the factory in France having to shut down during Covid. The company is not taking new orders until they have fulfilled the orders for the current backlog, so it looks like we may not receive stock till middle of next year! In the meantime if you see DMC stranded cotton in your local store, it would be a good idea to stock up.
Embroidery Floss Palettes
To fill the need, I have made up floss packs of Maxi Mouline stranded cotton, which I have in stock. Maxi is manufactured by Circulo in Brazil and is a good quality 100% egyptian cotton floss thread in a wonderful range of colors which I use from time to time in my own embroidery projects.
I have compiled creative color palettes which can be used for any embroidery, sewing, quilting or art projects, and think they would make great Christmas presents, or stocking fillers? There is something thrilling about opening a gift with a divine set of floss colours, and dreaming about how you can use them in your next project – I have had such fun creating them!
Each pack contains 11 skeins of thread with shades of complementary colors and I have thrown in a wee embroidery transfer as a bonus. Although the transfer is not intended for use with the colour palette, it certainly could be used with a little imagination. Please note the packs include thread only, there are no instructions or pattern.
Premium Linen Fabric
For a special treat you may want to add a pack of Libeco premium linen to your Christmas wish list. We have just received stock and there are also gift cards available if someone else wants to buy it for you.
Kew Book Of Embroidered Flowers
Last but not least if you don’t have a copy of the Kew Book Of Embroidered Flowers you can find information on the book and retail outlets here.
Last orders will be shipped on the 22nd December 2020 when we will close till the 5th of January 2021. Orders will be shipped by Fedex courier, so hopefully you get them in time for Christmas. Till next time wherever you are in the world, keep smiling and happy shopping!
