Sometimes on the weekends I like to peruse the web sites of both designers and online shops. I think of it as window shopping! Today I discovered a couple of really interesting tools I didn’t know existed – double eyed needles for example! – and new things happening on The Crewelwork Company’s web site.
The biggest news for those of us who don’t live in the UK is that they now offer free world-wide shipping on all orders.
The company has also put together three different packages for crewelwork enthusiasts who want to know they have everything to complete the project. For example, here is the information about the Level One Package:
“We like to make your Crewel Work experience with us as enjoyable as possible and we realise that sometimes, all you want is to know you have the right kit to get on with it. For that reason, we have created a package option with all the tools you need to get on with each level. For this option, please choose any Level One kit and receive a Seat Frame and our instructional DVD. Seat Frame includes 3 hoops and a Twizzler.”
That means that the set of things you see below (the kit, the frame with three hoops and the DVD) which would cost 114£ if you purchased them separately is now available for 85£ as a package. That’s a saving of 29£ and the shipping is free worldwide. The savings are similar on Level Two and Level Three packages.
Remember the lap hoop frames I wrote about a few weeks ago? These are the same lap hoop frames I use and love. I don’t have her DVD but if it’s anything like “Phillipa, live and in person” it will be wonderful! And of course, her kits are first rate. They really are a “class in a kit”. The diagrams, the stitch instructions and the materials are all of superior quality.

And this charming pillow from the very first workshop I took with Phillipa in Burford. Unfortunately this kit is no longer available, but there are plenty of others that are just as fabulous!
What would I like to do next? In the far future?
Well, let’s see…
Gosh, window shopping is fun!
