CORONA VIRUS UPDATES
CURRENT STATUS - OPEN - BUT SOLO
WALES IS STILL IN LOCKDOWN
CURRENT DISPATCH 2-7 WORKING DAYS
Due to incredible demand (thank you) but limited packing staff due to isolation (me) from April we are limiting our collection that is available for shipping. These will change on a weekly basis and will include our best sellers and some new lines too. They will be limited - so please join our mailing list if you want to make sure you have access to this and any special offers. Our UK dyers also remain closed for now - they are running a skeleton staff for our wools but it means we do not hold our full normal collection.
If you want to preorder any kit that is out of stock - then please email here as we may have a few studio stashes and will let you know. We may even be able to pack it for you as a special order. Non key kit orders take longer.
THANK YOU for choosing our kits to add some making joy to your isolation ...
2020 has bought with it a set of challenges.. whilst we have no idea (like many of you) how this will impact us over the coming months, our priority is to remain safe and ensure we take measures to reflect this. We are so happy that so many of you are adopting crafts to while away hours at home creating something lovely. We hope that our crafts will help ease some of your anxieties... we just need to let you know a few things:
- We are a SMALL BUSINESS ... We, like many, are juggling family and personal challenges, illness and isolation.
- RANGES we have key lines which are still shipping to help us streamline packing
- We REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT and business, but please understand that everything may take a little longer than normal.
- SUPPLY is limited which is why we have streamlined
- WOOL for stitch kits is low - so we are substituting similar colours. The UK dyers remain closed but we are dying some of our key colours
- NEEDLES there are pretty much no 12mm wooden knitting needles in the EU - so we are substituting with our premium coloured needles for now
- NO GIFT BOXES but premium tissue, wrap, gift card and a tote with every order packed in a premium eco postal box.
- DELIVERY is via Royal Mail who are still collecting from us, most kits are tracked.
- LEARN we have a comprehensive (and expanding) range of videos and instructions in our CRAFT SCHOOL which are available to use
- We are not shipping gift boxes - but a tote (varying sizes) with every order and a new premium postal box with tissue and a card in each box. Letter box gifts are wrapped for you.
