So it has been a long time since we have updated the News section of Designs and Such, and with good reason really. Todd and I had our first baby, Rafferty in November so things have been put on the back burner while we try and catch up on sleep! So, after a difficult few months we are back and getting ready to push our store forward again!
We are developing a new range of cross stitch kits over the next few weeks which we hope you will love. Some of the items we had up on the site previously have been taken down so we can concentrate fully on the cross stitch kits. These new kits will be modern, (not a teddy bear in sight!) exciting, and fresh!
After a very exciting December for Designs and Such we are very happy to announce that we are in issue 7 of Craftseller Magazine! Our little article features on page 78 and talks a little about how we came about trading and how we are managing juggling 2 jobs!
Beth, the Editorial Assistant at Craftseller, was a joy to work with, giving us advice about guidelines, image sizes, and helpful hints to get the most out of the space. Initially terrified of the thought of writing 250 words about ourselves and after a bit of writers block, we are super pleased and immensely proud of how the article turned out.
We are currently working on some designs that will hopefully feature in Craftseller in the future, they will include free templates for readers to make and sell themselves so watch this space… Designs and Such might be in print again!
With this in mind we asked Mrs C if she’d mind having a go at one of our craft kits (in this case it was the Trio of Feltivity) and to let us know her thoughts… and if she wouldn’t mind, then writing up a review for us too.
We have to say we’re delighted that she “enjoyed making it” and that she appreciated that our kits contain everything you need to complete it. We also very much appreciate her honest comments about the lack of graphical aids in the instructions… we’ll be including these in all kits henceforth.
This store is all about homemade goodies, made for you, by us. We also supply kits, a great option if you fancy getting a little creative but want all the supplies provided to you to make it a smidgen less scary. All of our items come beautifully packaged to create that local craft store gift wrapped look. They are also recyclable so you can recycle them or pass on to someone else.
This is our first crafty venture, so we have everything crossed that it is a success, so take a browse, get that credit card out and add items to that bright pink basket on the right hand side!
