Welcome to Hawkins Hobbies
Bespoke kits for some of the most beautiful and magical cross stitch designs from Mirabilia, Lavender & Lace, Nora Corbett and Bella Filipina. Cute character kits featuring Winnie the Pooh and friends, Boofle, Lickle Ted and Somebunny. Plus a wide selection of Mill Hill cross stitch/beading kits for Christmas, Halloween and everything in between!
We can make up a kit for you from almost any available chart or if you have the chart, we can do the rest! Contact us for more details.
During the year, we are away at various stitching retreats and shows. Due to this, we close the site down to ensure that we don't sell something twice! You can still contact us by email, firstname.lastname@example.org about anything you are interested in purchasing. During this time, there will be a notice on the front of the site, letting you know when it will be back up and we also post a notice on our Facebook page.
Dates affected for 2023 are: November 13-21 (Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show) and 24-26.
Dates affected for 2024 are: January 12-14; March 6-11 and 21-25; April 10-22; May 15-20; June 19-30; July 1 and 25-29.
**UNITED STATES AND CANADA**
Unfortunately, due to changes in shipping and insurance regulations since the UK left the EU, we are no longer able to ship any orders to the United States or Canada. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
We still have delays in receiving some Mill Hill kits, beads and embellishment packs due to a manufacturing problem with Magnifica beads. We are looking at replacing the Magnificas with Delica beads where possible if this continues. Also, many manufacturers are still playing 'catch-up' since the pandemic and supplies are taking longer than expected to come through. The site is 'live stock' so everything showing as 'in stock' will ship asap but realise that if you want to place a custom order with us, it may take six weeks or more to ship this out. We will, of course keep you updated.
If there is anything that you are interested in, that is currently out of stock, it may just be that we don't have an item to complete the order. Please contact us as you could have the option to buy the kit now and we will send you the missing items when they arrive or you could try to source your own. We try to turn things around as quickly as possible when we receive them and will ship your order as soon as possible.
As a small business, we genuinely appreciate your continued support, understanding and patience.
Keep safe – and carry on stitching!
