There are fantastic, brand new products in my shop!
I am really pleased to have the sweet and lovely Anni Angel Stitch Kit, the oh so useful We Love Stitching! project bags and the super special Kids Learn to Stitch Book Bundle available now for you to buy.
Keep up to date with news, special offers and new products by signing up to my newsletter.
Come along to the special Kids Learn to Stitch book signing and Anni Angel Kit launch afternoon at Much Ado Books on Saturday 26th November, between 2.30 and 4.30 – and be among the first to get your hands on this lovely, brand new kit.
Call in and chat with Francois and I about stitches and stitching and find out about the special kit pack for all Much Ado customers – this will include an Anni Angel Kit, a signed copy of Kids Learn to Stitch, and a We Love Stitching! fair trade cotton project bag.
It is an informal drop-in afternoon so no reservations are necessary!
These very special We Love Stitching! project bags are child sized and eco-friendly and will be available to buy from my shop very soon.
Each bag is made from a weighty 5oz, good quality 100% natural fair trade cotton in fair trade certified factories. They have short handles and are printed on one side with a beautiful, full colour illustration by Francois Hall, using eco-methods in a fair trade factory here in England.
The We Love Stitching! Project Bag measures 25cm x 25cm and is the perfect size for a Kids Learn to Stitch book – or all three Kids Learn to… books! – as well as all sorts of stitching bits and pieces.
Great for all young – and old! – stitchers.
Anni Angel is a very special, new project that I have designed as a kit for you to make along side all the other projects in Kids Learn to Stitch. She will soon be available to buy from my shop, either on her own or as part of a super special Kids Learn to Stitch Book Bundle.
The Anni Angel kit will include actual size templates for you to cut out, full instructions with page references to Kids Learn to Stitch and enough beautiful 100% pure wool felt and 100% pure wool thread to make yourself one Anni.
Anni will look lovely hung up as a festive decoration and you will even be able to put special little gifts in her pocket. To make Anni you will need to get stitching star stitches, cross stitches, running stitches, fly stitch, appliqué and running stitch seams – and of course you will be able to make lots of friends for Anni using different coloured felt and threads, buttons, beads and other things.
