Pre-stitching service

Our pre-stitching monogram service is coming soon, in case all that sewing seems a bit intimidating... let us stitch your items for you!

We've often been asked over the years if we can pre-stitch products - and quite honestly we (I) haven't been able to commit time to it. But I'm excited to be working with some lovely cross-stitchers that can sew the items to order, so that personalised gifts will be accessible for everyone - even those that don't fancy picking up a needle & thread.
