Liberty 140th birthday banner

Your birthday should be celebrated – especially if you turn 140! That’s the milestone our stockist, Liberty London, is celebrating this year and we wanted to mark it the best way we know how – with needle and thread.

Liberty 140th birthday banner

We interpreted their firework-inspired birthday graphic into cross-stitch, finely matched the colour palette in stranded cotton thread, and whipped out some cream evenweave fabric to transform into a celebratory banner.

Making the Liberty birthday banner

The pattern was stitched over several days, and includes 981 metallic gold cross-stitches, 16 confetti French knots and four backstitched stars with rainbows trails.

Liberty, many happy returns!

Now stocked at Liberty

Liberty of London

The last few months have been a whirlwind of excited screaming, late-night kit making and furious sample stitching. Finally, yesterday, we hand-delivered the last of the display hooplas to Liberty HQ, and went to see our cross-stitch kits hanging proudly at Liberty London.

Floss & Mischief at Liberty

It’s taken one Liberty open call, a false start and two whole years to reach this milestone, and we couldn’t be prouder. We always knew that Liberty bunch were mischief-makers at heart.

Modern haberdasheries are the best

Stitch Up haberdashery

There’s something quite magical about haberdasheries – the lure of a new skein of thread, the promise of a fabulous fabric, the joy of finding the most amazing embroidery scissors.

All of our stockists are modern haberdasheries that tempt the senses and will enthral a new generation to the crafty side. We’ve got a lot of love for our stockists!

Join us in supporting these amazing businesses by shopping with them and singing their praises on Small Business Saturday UK on 6th December. By supporting them, you’ll also be supporting us, just like you would if you buy from us direct, on Etsy, Not On The High Street or at the Etsy House pop-up shop this weekend.

Our heros

These guys rock

Our stockists rock! Not only do they support independent designers like us, they help crafters like you to discover amazing needlework to stitch. It’s safe to say they’re our heros.

So please swing by By The Yard in Cheltenham (Gloucestershire, UK) and visit Not On The High Street online, two of our newest stockists. We think you’ll *heart* them too.
