Summer Special Offer—Hurry, Ends Soon!
As we head towards October, I start to think about the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, 7th—10th October. It's always a great show, in a huge, beautiful venue. It seems like 5 minutes since we were last loading all of our stock into the car (packing the car is a feat of engineering—not an inch of space is wasted!) and displaying our 500+ designs in all their glory.
However, that's not all we sell. Many people are not aware that we stock a large range of accessories too. It's easy to show these at a retail show, a bit more difficult on a website so please indulge me! All of these accessories are available on our website and are easy to receive, they'll fit through your letterbox so no need to wait in for a parcel!
Another of our most popular accessories has to be our range of card and plastic bobbins. Which to use is an individual preference. I use card, reuse them 4 or 5 times then recycle them. For those plastic fans, who can reuse them for longer, the price is ever so slightly higher. Have a look on the website for more details.
Also in stock, you'll find thimbles, needles and 5 different types of needle threaders, fabric marker pens that can magically vanish (or, if you prefer, there's a wipe off one). The picture shows our bulk pack of needles (available in 50s or 100s), but we also stock small packs of 6 needles.
Oh, and don't forget our range of acrylic coasters, keyrings and fridge magnets plus thread cards and aperture cards.
Finally, to put all these wonderful bits in, we stock 4 different sizes of organiser boxes. So, next time you need some stitchy bits and pieces, don't wait for a show or visit an expensive store, have a look at http://www.stitchtastic.com/catalog/accessories.aspx, delivery usually only takes a couple of days and we're pretty sure you'll find a bargain!

Facebook Featured Stitchers
This month, we're featuring Pam, who got in touch on facebook after I appealed for stitchers who would like to display their stitching.
Pam stitched the Kawasaki ZXR6, as you can see from this fantastic picture. What impressed me the most was her speedy stitching. This took Pam 3 weeks to stitch, which I am very impressed with!
You can't really see the size of the stitching here, but I can tell you that this is not a small design so Pam's stitching rate is even more impressive than you might first think!
Pam says she found this to be a great design to stitch, so I'm delighted to give her the opportunity to show it off to all of you. If you'd like to show off your designs, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll show off your work next! Alternatively, have a look at our facebook page, www.facebook.com/Stitchtastic.
