First Post

I decided to get a journal since I needed somewhere I could list some back copies of New Stitches that I have available (the post listing them will appear later), and the messageboard I was using for my site doesn't send me a notice when it's updated, while Livejournal emails me notification of comments.

Since I have this LJ I'll probably start using it for other notices and updates about interesting things - and the next thing I know I'll be updating every day :-)

My default userpic, for those who are curious about such things, is a section of mediaeval tiles from the floor of Winchester Cathedral.

Back Issues of New Stitches available

The mother of a work colleague is moving to a smaller place, and getting rid of her cross stitch magazine collection. Since my colleague knew I did cross stitch he asked if I would like them, and since I quite often get requests for back issues of New Stitches, I thought it would be a good idea to acquire them.

If you're looking for a back issue, leave a comment here or email me, and I'll be happy to send it to you. In the UK, I'll charge £2.00 for sending First Class, and £1.50 for sending Second Class, and that includes about 50p for the magazine itself. If you want more than one, or you want it sent abroad I'll work out a cost based on the weight for posting.

I do have some other cross stitch magazines from the same source, so it may be worth checking with me if you're looking for something other than New Stitches.
