Here at Bothy Threads we are great believers in crafting being good for the mind and the soul. We have been told so often that being able to cross stitch during this lockdown period has been a great help to relieve stress, anxiety and boredom. We are very proud to see how our kits have helped you all.
We are also very proud and thankful for all our keyworkers who have continued to go out on the frontline. In what is very unusual times, it is heart warming to see so many friends, family and sometimes complete strangers pulling together to bring Great Britain through to the other side of the rainbow.
As a momento to 2020 and what has been so far an exceptional year we are working with the very talented June Armstrong to bring out a new design which we hope will help you to remember the good times that have come from 2020 including having more time at home with your family and seeing how a nation can become one in a time of need. June’s Stay At Home design depicts family life for so many and also brings in the VE Day celebrations with the bunting in the window.
We will be bringing this design out as a special release towards the end of June by which time hopefully life will be regaining some normality and we will be able to see family and friends again who we have all greatly missed during lockdown. You can also download June’s drawing for free from her Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Joyfuljune16/) for you or your little ones to colour in!
And as a special mark of respect to our wonderful NHS, we will be donating 10% of all sales of this design to the NHS.
And as always, please stay safe everyone.
Much love from all the team at Bothy Threads.
