Because these are all from some of my favourite places to buy such crafty things - and I should share those links in case you *need* some felt or DMC or pens...
Oh and, no, these peeps have not asked me to write this post or anything like that..!
The pens are from Cult Pens. That site is heaven and hell in one for pen lovers. They have loads of pens and pencils and markers. It's awesome because they've got everything I need and it's also a pain because they have sooo many things I didn't know I *needed*! And on top of that, their prices are pretty good, the postage is very reasonable and their customer service is excellent. And yes, they ship outside the UK too and the postage prices are still reasonable!
Pixie Rose is my go-to place for felt. The colours are just so delicious and there are lots of 'em! Over 70! They have the felt in a number of sizes and you can also buy per metre, so you can get just the amount of felt you need. That is really handy I think because often you have to buy a massive piece although you only need a small piece.
As you can probably imagine, I go through quite a bit of embroidery thread. And when I need some thread in a hurry (also if I don't), Sew and So is the place to go. For example, yesterday I ran out of thread for one of the projects for my book. I ordered the thread yesterday afternoon and it arrived in my mail box today! Quick shipping at a reasonable cost, nice! And they don't just sell DMC thread, they've got other brands too, as well as pretty much anything you could possibly need for any kind of embroidery and sewing.
