March Newsletter 2018!

We would like to start our newsletter with a massive “Thank You” to everyone for your support during the Stitches Show. It was really lovely to meet everyone!

To all our customers who were unable to go this year, your patience and understanding whilst we caught up has been amazing… thank you all so much, you’re fab 🙂

On another note, unfortunately Opal will not be manufacturing the Opal Advent Calendars this year. We know they’re immensely popular and can only apologise. Fingers crossed they’ll be back for Christmas 2019!

We have a fantastic new pattern available, “Cute Boots” beautiful booties for ages 0-6 months.

We have 10 samples to lend with the purchase of 10 patterns – ideal for bricks and mortar shops. They will be available on a first come first served basis.

Please may we ask that if you are paying by bank transfer, please use the reference of the business name instead of the invoice number. It will save our accounts a headache and they will be eternally grateful 🙂

With the arrival of Spring and Easter just around the corner, we also have plenty of “crafty” ideas for you this month.

Clover and KP have some wonderful Pompom makers which are fantastic for the kids to make Easter chicks. Also, don’t forget the Clover Flower Looms which are fabulous for the essential Easter bonnets.

Wishing you all a lovely Easter!

David, Jackie, Mars Martha and Team
