I am still sending out most UK parcels by Hermes, which allows me to have contactless deliveries at a reasonable price. I had been using Royal Mail for overseas packages and for small items, but they are suffering from more severe delays than they would like us to think. I won't be sending anything more until 4th January anyway, so hopefully by then I will have a clearer picture of the situation.
I am now teaching online! It turns out that teaching embroidery online is actually a really wonderful thing, allowing my students to see what I'm doing really closely. I can also record my demonstrations so students can view them again in their own time, or catch up if they have to miss a session. I have been teaching constantly since September (make hay while the sun shines, right?) so I've barely had any time to develop new things. However, I have some exciting stuff planned for 2021, so sign up for my newsletter if you want to be the first to hear.
Things are booking up really quickly, so if you want to get in some tuition for yourself or a group, I recommend you contact me as soon as you can. I am currently scheduling for Spring.
I am still trying to restock kits as fast as possible, but again, this is impacted by the huge volume of other work going on and some supply issues. If there is something you particularly want to buy and it isn't in stock, please drop me a message - I'm happy to bump things up my to do list if I can.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for your continued support. It means the world to me, and I am so glad to be giving people the chance to learn and create something beautiful in a world facing a lot of ugliness. Every class you book and every purchase you make, however small, is so much appreciated. Thank you.
Stay safe and well,
