A UNIQUE SURPRISE FOR CRAFT LOVERS

This exclusive craft-lover's calendar contains premium contents, many of which are brand new for the box and cannot be bought separately. Each item has been carefully designed and hand-picked to create a festive experience like no other.

As well as our Advent boxes containing all you need to create two separate cross stitch projects, the boxes also contain little extras to help you stitch and finish off your cross stitch patterns in style. Why not use ribbon to add a bow, hanger or place buttons within the design for a unique look.
