What’s New in March

Well here we are in March 2018 and just when we are thinking Spring, the snow arrives. That makes it an ideal time to stay inside in the warm and craft.  There is still time to make something for Mother’s Day – if you are quick, but then there is Easter hard on its heels. Then of course, some people say it is never to early to start making for Christmas!

New to the website this month is a new range of Rice Beads in some great colours. I have finally got round to sorting out and photographing all the Stenboden Rice Beads that I had in a big box.

So what are Stenboden Rice Beads?  Well, they are very lightweight Beads in the shape of a grain of Rice which are great for adding colour without the weight of a glass bead. That makes them perfect for Bead Embroidery, Jewellery Making and General Beadwork.

Why not have a look at our Pinterest Board HERE for some ideas on how to use them.  Here is a necklace I made several years ago using Light Blue Rice Beads and Size 9 TOHO Beads.

Just a reminder that prices are reduced on all of our Craft Kits. The Kids Craft Kits HERE are great for the holidays or as party gifts – many are under £5.  There are some lovely items in the Craft Starter Kits section HERE that would make a great Mother’s Day gift for a bargain price. But hurry, when they are gone they are gone!

I will leave you now with this thought:  I think of myself as a beginning crafter, I like to begin new projects but don’t always manage to finish them!

Until next time ……
