And this is a beauty made by my friend Karen Fraser from Piecemakers in California. Karen made the rose from a kit that I had sent to her and she added little-beaded stalks. Don’t you think it is gorgeous?

  1. Hi Di. I took a few lessons from you when you had the shop at Rock Cottage. I now live in the USA. How do you send packs over here and how would I know the price of the postage?

    1. Hi Dana, good to hear from you again. Yes we do ship to USA and once you have placed your order online, Renn will send you a quote for the cost of the postage and you are able to OK it or not.
      If not, she will issue a full refund.
      The reason why we need to do this is: each kit has different components and the weight depends on other goods ordered at the same time. So it is best to weigh the parcel once it is ready and to send you a quote. Have a good Monday!
      Kindest regards
