Sparkly Winter goodies!

Winter Sparkle ATC Swap mini

So, our partners have been assigned and the Winter Sparkle Artist Trading Card swap is underway – hurrah!  It’s very exciting that we have a sponsor for the first time – with huge thanks to Nicole from Cloud Craft for her generosity. Until 30 November 2014 all participants in the swap, and, even better than that, all readers of Very Berry can get 10% off at Cloud Craft with the code ATC10. So get spending!

Cloud Craft is a new stand-alone shop set up by Nicole, who already has a track record as a great Etsy seller. She sells brilliant 100% wool felt (can’t be beaten!) in 45 different colours. As well as being able to buy felt in single sheets of different sizes, Nicole has curated some beautiful, colourful, bundles too – here’s her selection for the Christmas season:

100% Wool felt sheets - 'Christmas Starts Here' Collection

 ‘Christmas Starts Here’ felt bundle

She also has a brilliant selection of all the stuff you need for modern hand stitching, including lots of lovely stitching kits to get you started:

Beautiful Nancy Nicholson Birdie Embroidery kit from Cloud Craft

As well as all this goodness, there’s all the stitching basics you need – Aida and evenweave linen, DMC and Sublime Stitching threads, embroidery hoops, buttons and trims, needles, pins, scissors and much more. If you are thinking of taking up a cosy stitching hobby for the long winter nights on the sofa, you couldn’t start in a better place.

I’ve used my discount already (don’t forget, 10% with the code ATC10 until 30.11.2014) –  and bought some linen, red floss, white felt and sweet red lace trim for my ATC.


I have a Scandi-style-plan in my head, but sadly have other stuff to finish before I can get going with some cosy hand-stitching of my own. I wonder what the other swappers are planning….?
