We’ve had a couple of queries about payment, and whether when paying for an item you must have, or sign up for, a PayPal account first. PayPal don’t make it as obvious as it should be, but you do not need to do this.
When you’re transferred from our website to the PayPal payment page you will be presented with a screen similar to the one below:
If you click the option called “Don’t have a PayPal account?…pay as guest” (circled in red in the image above), you will then be shown your shipping details etc and be able to pay using your credit or debit card, without having to log in or sign up to PayPal.
Hope that helps! M.
“Dot Spot” birds, as they were affectionately named by my husband, Mike, were launched at Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch at the NEC, Birmingham and the kits with instructions are now available in our online shop. Based on the ‘Birds with Attitude’ from the ‘Get Stuffed’ book, these stuffed fabric birds were designed to be simple to stitch using materials that are easy to access.
Ready made “Dot Spot” birds, boxed and gift wrapped, will be online soon for those that would like to purchase one handmade by myself. However if you can’t wait, then birds can be purchased from Crushed Chilli in Durham, and also the Porta Dextra gallery in York has just received their first shipment of “Dot Spots”.
The African Stump dolls from the same book and shown in the image on the left, can also be viewed online at The African Fabric shop and in their newsletter. The African Fabric shop stocks the fabric which was used to make the dolls, plus African beads and other delights.
In other news, unfortunately I won’t be at the Alexandra Palace for the Knitting & Stitching Show this week (11th – 14th October), but you will find my books “Get Stuffed” and “Get Plastered” there on sale at Art Van Go and the Embroiderers’ Guild Bookshop.
After several months beavering away behind the scenes it is with great relief that I can finally announce that the online shop is open for business!
The shelves are a little bare at the moment but future plans include offering creative and quirky hand-made gifts designed and made by myself, art work and stitch kits, so please keep checking back.
Currently available to purchase however are both my books, Get Plastered: plaster, print and stitch, and the latest Get Stuffed: shape, stuff and stitch and as an introductory offer UK delivery is free!
