Welcome to our newsletters! They're not very frequent but they're packed full of useful information and fun stitching facts. Happy reading!

December 10

I'll mention it just once.....

I did promise not to mention Christmas last month, didn't I? Well, I promise I will just mention it the once, in this paragraph only, so skip onto the next one if the spirit of Scrooge is upon you at the moment! I hope you're all sorted for the big day (or weekend this year, isn't it?), whether you're having a quiet one or looking after the whole family. Just make sure you give yourself some stitching time. No more Christmas cards or banners to stitch, just your own stitching for you. Enjoy, and happy new year. Harley Bike Keyring Kit 
The Harley Bike Keyring Kit is a great last minute present, or just a fun stitch for you!

Crazy Designs

Many of our customers love to stitch their own car or bike. If that's what you've done, good for you. Others stitch for a relative - Dad's old Norton bike, or Mum's first mini, maybe Grandad's old Fiat (perhaps the 1915 Fiat is pushing it a bit!) However, many of our stitchers want to fulfil our tagline - 'Fancy stitching something a bit different?' and choose a tank or a plane. I've got 4 unusual designs to show you this month, that might just appeal to you or one of your stitching recipients - lucky things!
Firstly, if your son, granddaughter or nephew (avoiding gender stereotyping!) would like to go quad biking, why not give them the next best thing with a stitched quad bike? Measuring 14.3" by 9.6", this design uses 19 DMC colours and is a vision in yellow.
If Grandad or Auntie's birthday is coming up and they're a keen golfer, why not stitch them their very own golf cart? This design uses 28 DMC colours and measures 14.3" by 10.4". It even contains an encouraging 'Hole in One' message for extra moral support!
Have you got a ship fan in the family? The why not commemorate the greatest ocean liner of modern times and stitch them the QE2? Measuring 14.3" by 9.6", this design uses 20 DMC colours and costs £27.95 for the kit.
Finally, a design that I originally did on request but which has proved very popular - the Tesco fuel tanker! Screeching to a halt, this design uses only 11 DMC colours and measures 13.9" by 8.7". There's no better present if your husband / daughter / son drives one, or even if they don't, it would be a great surprise!
All of these designs go down particularly well with kids, so visit http://www.stitchtastic.com/catalog/caricature-kits.aspx for more info and gift ideas.

Stitchtastic Stitchers

This month, we have a repeat stitcher! Pam has already appeared in our newsletter in September, and she's here again! Hot on the heels of the Kawasaki ZXR6 which we featured last time, Pam has just completed our caricature Land Rover Series II. Pam says this design took her 4 weeks to complete and has really impressed her husband, who is a 4 x 4 enthusiast.
Well done indeed Pam, I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
