Welcome to the Presencia UK website.

We are a secure site.


SecurityMetrics for PCI Compliance, QSA, IDS, Penetration Testing, Forensics, and Vulnerability Assessment

 

You can use your cards with the confidence that we are as secure as any site you will visit.

We accept Paypal.

 

As well as this we now have a shopping basket which I have found great to use.

You needn't be afraid of this as right to the last minute you can remove an item if you change your mind.

 

We have also put the threads colours up.

With this we have done our best but remember they will only be close to the original as it relies on your colour screen.

 

Have fun.

 

Vivienne & Iain.

There is also a order form if you want to order by post.
