For customers of my miniature needlepoint kits worldwide, here are the Last Posting Dates for Christmas, for parcels sent from the UK:
Australasia, Africa, Far East and Middle East – Friday 4th December.
Eastern Europe, USA, Canada and Japan – Thursday 10th December.
Western Europe – Friday 11th December.
UK – Monday 21st December.
I get parcels out within 48 hours of you placing your order on the website, so please allow for that when calculating how much time is needed.
I’ve also got an update ‘Newsflash’ about payment methods: We now take PAYPAL, in addition to Visa, Mastercard, Solo and UK Maestro. This means that you now have more options when you are going through the checkout process. You can choose to use the credit card that you have previously registered with Paypal, or you can choose to have payments debited directly from your bank account. This last option is useful for people who do not have a credit card, but still wish to buy online.
Today I launched two new doll’s house scale Christmas stocking kits. One is called ‘Toys for boys’ and features traditional toys such as a fort and a teddy, and the other design is called ‘Toys for girls’ and features toys such as (you guessed it!) a doll’s house and a doll. These miniature needlepoint stockings would make great additions to the Christmas scenes in your doll’s house.
If you are looking for Christmas presents, the kits are a good solution for stitching friends – or stitch them up yourself, and give them ‘hand-made by you’. Each kit is to be worked on 40 count silk gauze, and costs £8.95 each. There are six other designs in the range already.
