Bobo Stitch summer sabbatical
I hope you will forgive me for taking a rather long summer break this year. In the four and a half years since my little shop has launched I have worked every holiday, many evenings and weekends in order to give the best experience to my customers. While I have enjoyed every minute of that, it's now time for a break so that I can recharge my creative batteries. The shop will be open again to receive orders in September with a new range of kits to tempt you into some cosy autumn stitching. For now please have a browse and of course contact us if you wish, please just have a little patience as it may take slightly longer than usual for us to respond. Have a great summer!
Pretty useful cross stitch...
Bobo Stitch takes the traditional craft of cross stitch and adds a good twist of contemporary design. Using the latest in stitching technology (yes there is such a thing!), like glow in the dark thread and soluble canvas, we create kits that bring a comforting hobby bang up to date.
We want you to thoroughly enjoy your slow craft hobby and show off your finished stitching with pride. Suitable for absolute beginners, those looking to blow the dust off an old treasured hobby, or those with the highest level of stitching skills.
Our kits include...
- Beautiful full colour patterns in large print with clear symbols
- High quality materials including DMC threads
- A fully illustrated 'How to Cross Stitch' guide
- Full instructions for finishing your project
Fancy a custom kit just for you?
If you have a great idea for a cross stitch project but cannot find anything like it, then why not get in touch. We can create custom kits and patterns based on your ideas.
Behind the brand
Hannah Sturrock is the designer behind Bobo Stitch. Author of Modern cross stitch, occasional presenter on Create and Craft TV and enthusiastic advocate of the benefits of cross stitch across the board.
Hannah can be found in our (recently rearranged) little studio surrounded by boxes of thread cones, piles of hoops and mountains of linen and aida. She is also head tea girl, a role which she takes very seriously indeed.
In 2012 Hannah had a baby daughter and named her Olive. Her big brother called her nothing but Baby Olive, which was shortened to Baby O, then Bobo and it appears to have stuck. She was born at around the same time that Bobo Stitch came into being. She may not thank us in her teenage years, but for now she epitomises our little business venture. Full of joy and growing all the time.
