updates to be alice

Hi everyone!

First off, I just want to say thank you all so much for your support so far. In March 2019 I decided to start a subscription service because I needed to keep myself creating and producing kits. This was a way to keep myself accountable, even if no one signed up. Here we are 2 year's later and I have more subscribers than I could have imagined!

As this endeavor grows, I want to keep adapting so that I can give you as good a service as possible. And of course to keep attracting new stitchers so that this community can grow. Therefore I've decided to make a few changes to the set up.


The first big change is making the blog public. Currently it is only available to subscribers and is mainly used to keep you updated on the latest kits, etc. I have been writing furiously over the last two months to improve the content posted on here. I already have a few posts written - such as 'how to display your embroidery' and '5 stitches every beginner should know' - and I'm hoping that by giving myself a running start like this, I can keep it up even when things get busy. I'm also hoping that these blog posts will help to get this community out there for more people to join and share in their love of stitching!

The new blog will launch on 2nd April 2021

Calico Companions

Making the blog public will of course make the Calico Companion benefits pretty much null and void. However I will be keeping the pricing plan available as a way for people to give a small donation towards the continuation of my work. If you are currently a Calico Companion please do not feel pressured into keeping up your subscription. The new setup is not what you signed up for, and I will not take offence or think that you no longer support me if you cancel your subscription!

This will take effect from 19th February 2021 (tomorrow)

Floss Friends

Floss Friends currently receive a Goddess Thread Pack each month. I am going to make a slight change to this based on store stock and inventory. Instead, Floss Friends will receive Postcard Thread Packs. As a result, the price of the Floss Friends subscription will increase to €10/month. Again, I will not take offence to anyone cancelling their subscription based on these changes!

This will take effect from 19th February 2021 (tomorrow)

Needle Nerds

The Needle Nerd subscription will remain largely the same. You will still receive a new kit every second month. You will still have exclusive access to the Needle Nerd Tutorials page. Unfortunately I have had to change suppliers for a number of items this year. Therefore there will be a slight price increase from €12.50/month (€25/kit) to €13/month (€26/kit). And of course I totally understand if you wish to cancel your subscription at this point.

This will take effect from 28th March 2021

I hope you understand the need for these changes, and are as excited about the new setup as I am! If you have any questions or suggestions please do let me know! After all, this is a service for you
