Further Dates for the Diary

We are off on the road again this weekend with our huge bags of garments. On Saturday I am at Prick Your Finger in Bethnall Green, London from 3-6pm, displaying the garments, signing books and cuddling Excelana which is available here. Then on Sunday I am visiting Nest in Crouch End, London where I will be from around 2pm, with the trunk show, signing books and getting to cuddle Excelana again :-)

Next week we stay north, with a visit to Fibre and Clay, Knutsford on Friday 18th November with the full trunk show and with Excelana too for the first time.

The following week its the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate from 24th to 27th November. The Susan Crawford Vintage stand will be there - on A600 - please do come by and say hello if you're at the show (I think the organisers may have listed it as Arbour House Publishing but its still me!). The garments will be on display and we will also have Excelana for sale and some of the Knitshop yarns used in the book. Do bring your voucher if you pre ordered the book for 10% discount on Excelana and 15% discount on Knitshop yarns.

Finally for now on Sunday 4th December I'll be at Purl City Yarns in Manchester from 12-3 pm for a trunk show and signing.

Lots and lots to squeeze in before we go so,

for now

Despatch Update

I'm very pleased to be able to announce that UK pre-orders for volume 2 of A Stitch in Time should have been delivered (or delivery attempted) by the end of the day tomorrow. We have used a courier in the end due to the weight of the book and if no one is home they will leave the book somewhere safe or with neighbours if possible, otherwise they will leave a card for you to ring and arrange a re-delivery. Its taken a bit of time to get the orders all processed but we have had confirmation that delivery to all mainland UK addresses should be completed tomorrow.

For all other countries, it is somewhat out of our hands as all countries own delivery times etc are different but we have endeavoured to get the books delivered in as timely but cost efficient way as we could achieve so that no one should hopefully be waiting too long.

I will be 'out of the office' for the rest of this week but hopefully the remaining UK despatch will go smoothly. If for any reason you do not receive your book tomorrow and no card is left, please allow 24 hours for despatch to be re-attempted the following day.

kind regards
