I appreciate your patience during the period that the Etsy store has been closed and we have moved across to the new store. We are just putting the finishing touches in place, (there always seems to be something that causes a delay) but I am pleased to let you know that the new store will open this Friday 12th May.
For those of you who are on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter please put out the word on my behalf as it is not always possible to reach everyone through the blog! Thank you.
Whats new in the store?
The new store is an embroidery haven with a shopping and information experience all wrapped up in one. It is configured to be accessible from your PC, tablet or phone and for those who are not so tech savvy shopping online is easier than ever! Here are a few features you will find when visiting the site:
All items for sale are easy to navigate under one menu and includes: Needle painting and Whitework with colour pattern packs, iron on transfers, more full kits and lessons, fabric, floche and needles, book projects, handbook, DVD, gift cards and other supplies.
Here you can find out more about Needle painting & Whitework embroidery, lessons, free tutorials and how to care for your embroidery.
There is a new section with information on all my published books and where to find them.
Short video tutorials on aspects of Needle Painting and Whitework with colour/
Help topics such as where to start if you are new to embroidery, information on fabric, threads, needles, how to use the iron on transfers, shipping, payments etc. If you have a question the answer will be there. (if its not you can shout at me!)
I have spent the last few weeks researching, pricing and negotiating new shipping options so that you can receive your parcel quickly and reliably. You will now have the option of Airmail post and express courier. I am pleased to let you know that we are able to offer a flat rate for express courier up to 2kg so this will make it a lot more affordable.
There is a google translate function that will translate the site into 14 different languages. Although the translation is not always 100% accurate it will make it easier to understand.
MULTI CURRENCY TOOL
No more guess work, you will be able to see the prices displayed in your own currency. Although checkout will display in the default currency which is US$, your payment will of course be processed in your own currency.
ORDER & SHIPPING NOTIFICATIONS
No more wondering what has happened to your order. You will receive regular notifications on the status of your order and real time tracking so that you can track your order with the click of a button.
The new store is linked to the Digital store for easy access to patterns that can instantly be downloaded to your PC, tablet or phone.
You can access the Blog anytime from inside the store, so you can keep up to date with new posts and articles.
Meantime wherever you are in the world keep smiling and happy stitching. I look forward to welcoming new and returning customers to the new store and please feel free to give me feedback would love to hear what you think!
