Back from Norway and Subs News!

I know I have no excuse really, but after such a good trip, coming back to some terrible weather and too much paperwork has made me very grumpy indeed! Today, I have to do things like weigh packaging to complete Government waste forms and talk to card companies about Compliance when I just want to design and stitch. Sometimes running a business is not what it is cracked up to be!

As from May 1st (ie Next week) there is good news and bad news! I have to tell you is that we have had to make changes to our Subscriptions as a direct result of the Royal Mail putting up their prices by 60% ! I just cannot believe that they are getting away with these increases at a time when all business are struggling out there.

Subscriptions will be changed as follows: UK Full membership £35.00, UK Taster £12.00, UK Conversion £24.00

Non-UK Full Membership £40.00, Non UK Taster £14.00, Non UK Conversion 30.00

The good news is that we are making exciting changes to our postage rules. From 1st May, UK members will receive any shopping post free! We will also discount all members postage when going overseas – You will see more about this on the relevant pages on and after May 1st. Remember you will still have your Voucher for £7.50 when you join or resubscribe and 10% discount on your shopping…. Knowing many of you as I do, you will soon recoup the difference!

On a brighter note, Itch to Stitch will be off to the printers next week and I hope you like the special surprise in this issue. It is called the Fleur Etui and I am going to post pictures over the weekend.  I have included all the instructions, a large pull out chart and numerous pictures in Issue 90 and will offer full materials or embellishment packs to members only. And they will, of course be post free!

So enjoyed the tour. Thanks to all. At home things have gone a bit mad on the health front since then. Btw, what is UK Conversion?

I wish I could have booked into the Bradford weekend. Couldn’t book as I didn’t know when my thumb op would be.
