April 10

A bit short......

Apologies, this newsletter is a little shorter than usual. It's a very busy time for us, as right now we're preparing for Stitch & Craft 2010 at Olympia in a week's time. By the time you receive this, I'm pretty sure the show will be over, but we will have gone straight from Olympia to Florida, for a family wedding. And yes, that meant for the first time in a good few years I stitched a design produced by someone else! I wanted to produce a lovely piece of cross stitch for the happy couple, but now it's done I'm happily back onto my 1921 Fiat Design. It's going well, not too long to go. I shall take my stitching to Florida, though I doubt I'll get much done as it's not exactly going to be a beach holiday! Stitching on a long relaxing holiday is a delight, even if it's just for half an hour while the kids are in the pool. Or, if your purse is still a bit recession-hit, have another stay-cation and stitch at home!

If you have ordered from us during late March/early April, please accept my apologies for any delay in sending out products. We do intend to send out orders as quickly as we can on our return, and will send an e-mail detailing any delay.

Top Ten 2009 Designs

In February we featured an article on what to stitch. As we have over 600 designs, it's very difficult to know which one to choose. It's easy if you have a car or bike in mind, or you know who you're going to be stitching for, but otherwise, I'm here to provide you with some inspiration, using our top ten countdown from last year, of all of our designs put together, caricatures, other transport designs and nature / PETZ designs.

At number 10 is a real eye catcher at any stitching show, the Eddie Stobart Lorry Caricature.
Number 9 is the first in a number of VW designs in our top ten, the Volkswagen Beetle.
Number 8 is another Volkwagen, the VW Camper Van, Bay window design.
VWs were popular last year - another one is at number 7 - the smaller Volkwagen Camper Van (split screen).
Number 6 is an absolute classic - the Mini.
Number 5 is our best selling PETZ design, our scuba diving goldfish.
Number 4 is another VW, but this time a caricature of the split screen van.
The last VW in the countdown comes in at number 3, the detailed bay window design.
Runner up at number 2 is the Subaru Impreza.......
And number one, and lets hope he reaches the same dizzy heights in the new Formula 1 season just starting, it's our Lewis Hamilton caricature design.
Good Luck Lewis!
