Hawthorn Handmade - Contemporary Cross Stitch Kit - Winter Trees

This modern cross stitch kit is ideal for beginners, with everything you need to learn this relaxing craft included in the box, right through to experienced stitchers looking for a fresh and vibrant pattern with the hard work of sourcing all the materials (including high quality Aida and DMC thread!) taken care of.

The unique bright design by Stephanie Carswell is achievable with just one stitch (no back stitching or fiddly quarter stitches!) and the colour blocks and simple lines make the pattern easy to follow. The illustrated ‘Guide to Cross Stitch’ booklet shows you everything from how to hoop up and how to use the thread to how to follow the pattern and how to stitch. 

Trimits - Hedgehog (Needle Felting Kit)

Ideal for beginners and kids, these kits come with all the components you need to complete the project, including felting needle, pad and wool, alongside step-by-step instructions. They make a great gift too!

Anchor - Cuddly Friend - Panda (Punch Needle Kit)

An adorable character to stitch into a 3D friend! This cheerful panda is sure to be fun to make and will brighten up your home when complete.

 What we got up to in December...

Wear your Christmas party outfit to work day!

As we couldn't have a Christmas party we thought it would be fun to dress up in our Christmas party outfits at work! It was a great way to spread some festive cheer and it certainly made our Thursday much better!

As we head into 2021, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our customers for your support throughout 2020. As everyone is well aware, 2020 was a, let’s say, challenging year and our woolly business appreciates every order, follow, share, like etc. 

Crafting, for lots of people, is a great way to relax and has been known to help with mental health. This past year has displayed a huge rise in new crafters with people getting creative to pass time in isolation, keep their mind active and trying to stay calm during the stresses of 2020!

We know this isn’t over just yet, but with 2020 being a year most of us want to forget, let’s try and make 2021 a year to remember!

Stay safe and take care!
