Product availability:

We are sorry to announce that one of our suppliers has ceased trading.

Therefore sadly certain specialist items will become unavailable at short notice until we can remove them from our site.

Please bare with us while we do this.


We're an independent local 'high street' shop with a love of all needlecrafts, and we aim to keep a large and diverse selection of items  in stock for our customers, but we cannot hold every item from every supplier in stock all the time - we are just not big or wealthy enough 

However, we felt that on our website you would like to see the great wealth of designs that are available from many sources, in the UK and from overseas, so we have endeavoured to put all available items on our catalogue pages.  If you then place an order and the item(s) are not in stock, we will contact you to give you an estimated delivery time, with the option to cancel your order if you'd rather not wait.  (The vast majority of items are available to us within 2-10 days).

We thank you for your custom
