Announcement    🖤 COVID-19 UPDATE 29/05/20 🖤



My shop is open as usual. Due to social distancing, I will no longer be going to the Post Office and will be dropping parcels off at my local post/parcel box.

UK ORDERS:
- Orders are being sent out twice a week.
- Processing times have been set at 1 - 2 weeks (although at the moment it should take no more than 7 days for your order to be processed)
- All post is sent First Class.
- There are currently some long delays with the Royal Mail service. Please be patient, your super stitchy stuff will arrive soon! If your parcel does not arrive within 10 working days of dispatch please message me.
- Due to the safety measures I have put in place, orders are not tracked.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
- US orders are now shipping via a tracked service to ensure your parcel safely arrives.
- All other international shipping has been temporarily deactivated. Apologies to my international customers for this inconvenience.
- If there is something you have your eye on, please message me and I will happily put it aside for you until international shipping resumes.

This time of uncertainly will really hit indie businesses hard so I cannot thank those who want to buy something from me enough. Y'all superstars keeping the small biz dream alive.

To my international customers - hold tight and see you on the other side.



Stay safe and look out for each other.

H E L L O

If you’re a cross stitch lover or looking for a new hobby then you are in the right place. I specialise in cross stitch kits for the radical crafter, all designed in house by myself with a good sprinkling of pastels, bold typography and sometimes (but usually) an alternative twist. Cos’ everyone knows metal + cross stitching = awesome.

Or if you are just eyeing up something ready made with a contemporary twist to adorn your home then I have also got you covered.

All kits are designed and made up by hand in Bristol, England. I pride myself in using the best quality products with the lowest carbon footprint as possible. Almost everything is made right here in the UK. You'll find:
- High quality wooden hoops made less than an hour away from my front door.
- Tapestry needles made in Worcestershire, UK.
- 100% cotton aida made in the UK and hand cut to size by my fair hands.
- Full skeins of DMC thread, made in France.
- Felt made in the US but is created from post consumer waste.
- All printed goods use FSC certified stock and are printed in the UK.

All packaging is recyclable. Not a piece of plastic tape in sight!

Paper/card goods are printed on FSC certified stock, printed in the UK and where possible are also printed on recycled materials.

All cards and prints come NAKED (without cellophane!) in a bid to reduce unnecessary plastic packaging. Each print will be sent in a super safe board backed envelope that is 100% recyclable. Be kinder to the environment y'all!

I also take on commissions - send me a message and let’s talk!
