Depending where in the world you need parcels sent to, there’s still a couple of weeks left to order your miniature needlepoint gifts from my website, and have them delivered in time for Christmas. The dates listed below take into consideration the fact that it can take a couple of days for your parcel to be made up and posted (so, these dates listed here are two days ‘earlier’ for each category than those shown on the Royal Mail website).

For parcels addressed to these locations, please order by these dates at the latest:

United Kingdom – Thursday 15th December
Western Europe – Saturday 10th December
USA, Canada and Eastern Europe – Wednesday 7th December
Far East, Australasia, Rest of World – Saturday 3rd December

There are many kits and charts on my website suitable for all levels of stitcher – from beginner to advanced. You can either give the items as a kit / chart for the recipient to make up themselves, or, if they don’t  ‘do’ stitching, maybe make it up yourself and give it as a finished item. Items such as doll’s house scale cushions, samplers and footstools can be stitched in a couple of evenings, for instance.

A doll’s house scale dining chair in a design called ‘Alice (green)’, three and a half inches high
‘Home Sweet Home’ sampler , stitched on 28 count evenweave
Tiny tea cosies, stitched on 32 count silk gauze

Have a look in the Online Shop now, to choose from over 170 designs – there are kits for all kinds of doll’s house embroidery – from bellpulls to carpets, Christmas stockings to dining chairs, all in one twelfth scale (one inch to one foot).

Remember that, for items ordered via the website, p&p is free, worldwide, on orders of 10 GBP or over (under 10 GBP, there is a flat rate charge of 1.25 GBP per order).

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.
