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.

Why not stop pricking and use a laminate instead ? I have not pricked a pattern for years.

We print the pricking on yellow paper then laminate it in a Matt laminate. It then can be cut to fit your pillow how you want it. It is a specially chosen thickness that you can just prick through easily. It will last to use many times.

You will still get the original pattern, picture and paper pricking plus your laminate ready to use straight away. You pay for your pattern, £2.50 , plus the laminate, each pattern tells you the cost of the laminate, most are an additional £3.00. You also save on not just the pricking time but on pricking card and matt pattern film.

Laminates are sent in a board backed postage bag so they are not bent. The postage cost of £3.20 will cover many laminates or threads/kits.

Why not have a try?
