Back to Work

Just a quick hello to let you know that I am back to work. We had a wonderful time at the Polstitches Retreat in Cardiff, Wales and our trip to the Lake District. I can’t believe that I was actually able to visit “Mr. McGregor’s Garden” while touring the Beatrix Potter house. What fun! The scenery and beauty of the whole area is amazing and despite all the rainy days, Earl and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We look forward to returning soon.

 

I am so pleased that the new design, “Tiny Dancer”, was well loved by all the stitchers at the retreat and will be available worldwide in October. It was a joy to visit with  everyone. Thanks to all for attending and thanks to Jo Critchley for all the preparation and hard work.

So we have an exciting update to share that some of you are aware of from the recent retreat. Polstitches Designs is now a official distributor of Joan Elliott Designs. As such, Polstitches Designs has changed the website to offer color charts and b/w charts of all designs. This also means that if you want your local shop or favorite internet shop anywhere in the world to stock my designs you can now give them Polstitches Designs contact info and Jo will be able to ship to them directly. One of the reasons for this is that we want to support all retail shops even those little ones down the street to help to survive! With this new arrangement I will now have more time free for designing and will be releasing more never seen brand new designs on a regular bi-monthly basis. You will be able to view the next release around mid-November. Please spread the news as we are looking not only for local shops but online shops and shops in other countries where my designs are not currently available. Let’s share the love!

    Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful trip! J

    Just wondering if you know when you will be able to ship our order?

    Also, with the announcement of Polstitches being your official distributor, are we still going to be able to order your charts directly from you?

    Thank you
