Our much awaited delivery of beautiful French embroidery supplies from Sajou arrived today, just in time for the start of Le Tour. I have become quite a fan of Le Tour over the last few years, I love all the footage of the French countryside and the drama and excitement of such an extreme event.
But I love Sajou's products more, superbly manufactured in France and beautifully presented they are a joy to use and make lovely gifts. We have some new products this delivery including stranded cotton, tapestry wool and fine glass headed pins, along with our regular favourites.
Before I go on with pictures of the new Sajou, I must thank everyone who has sent such lovely comments for our competition. Thank you for taking the time to read our blog and for such kind thoughts.
The 3 winners of our gift packs are Purly Wendy, Rachel Bee and Amanda (your comment worked after all!) Congratulations!
We loved every ones comments so much we have decided to give little runners up treats to everyone who posted a comment before midnight on the 4th of July.
So all you need to do to claim your prize is let us know if you would like to pick it up at the shop or post it to you. If you would like it posted please just email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Let us know what sort of things you like to make so we can pick a suitable gift for you.
All prizes will be ready by Friday. Yayyyy!!
Finally back in stock, our favourite bicycle man thread winders and Eiffel Tower scissors.
Sajou source much of their packaging from old archived designs, their thread cards are the top row, the bottom row is original linen thread from the 1940s, we have both in stock.
New to l'uccello, Sajou stranded cotton thread in the most gorgeous colours.
Tapestry/embroidery wool from the famous old French company Laine St Pierre, beautiful quality and colours.
Gorgeous new sets of fine glass headed pins.
Manufactured in France, these lovely Eiffel tower scissors are a pleasure to use and so cute!
I'm off to watch the end of the race, I look forward to wrapping lots of pressies tomorrow,
thanks again to all x
