Great thread
10 January 2024  |  Cinderella

I love KO thread. Was recommended by a fellow stitcher on Facebook. I was scared to start beading on my cross stitch but am no longer scared. The thread is easy to work with and I can use a size 28 needle to stitch. No need for a special beading needle. Would recommend this thread to other cross stitcher wanting to include beads.

Christmas Tree Substitution

I really like this company and the only reason why I didn't rate them 5 was because they substituted an item without any notification but I have always been pleased with their previous service and will continue using their services.

These beads have even more sparkle than appears in the illustration! They're very attractive, and lovely quality. Despite the fact that my order was made just before Christmas, it was despatched promptly and arrived in time for me to complete the last couple of gift projects. Many thanks to Southampton Bead Shop for their speedy attention ... and indeed for their prompt and helpful service throughout the year.
