    New Design Torrin

    At last the Old Fishing Boat at Torrin is finished. I started stitching this in April 2010 and with all the preperations I had to do to get ready to move into the new shop my poor stitching got put on hold. It is now finished. I hope ypu enjoy it as much as I did.

    Shop Update

    Over the last few months we have been very busy gathering together and searching out new stock for the shop.
    We have new items from Lochcarron Weavers, Calzeat, Johnstons of Elgin, New wool fron Sirdar & Patons,a selection of new pots fron Stone the Crows, New Jewellery from Heather Gems and a new selection of Amber Jewellery.
    Over the next few months some of the remaining old stock will be put on sale to make room for more new and exiting things next year.

    The New Shop
     
    At last we are now in our new shop. WeNew shop got the key on January 24th and spent the next 2 weeks moving round and sorting out. We opened our doors 2 weeks later. Nearly 3 weeks on and we are just about sorted. We can now offer the full range of DMC & Anchor threads as well as an expanded range of Haberdashery and knitting supplies. I addition to our Needlework supplies and Cross Stitch Kits we now have a good range of Scottish gifts and Jewellery as well as shoes and clothes.

    VAT 

    On 24th January 2011 we will be moving to Over The Rainbow in the centre of Portree.
    Up until now we have been able to give you our kits VAT free.
    Because of the move we are no longer able to do this and VAT has now had to be added to all our prices at a rate of 20%.

    Launch of our New Web site.

    Over the past few months I have been working hard putting together a brand new web site.
    All the designs are still there with a few new ones added to the collection.
    I have also added some new pages,
    A Hints and Tips page, if you have any hints and tips that may be useful to other stitchers send them to me and I will add them to the page.
    There is also a page displaying all the other designs we produce exclusively for some retail outlets.
