Christmas deliveries 2015


Christmas 2015 posting datesChristmas Post

We use a mixture of UK Royal Mail/Post Office for small packets and for larger orders, especially vases, a courier service.
We can never be certain, but based on the UK Post Office information, we recommend latest order dates for:

United Kingdom Friday, 18th December
Highlands, Isle of Man, Channel Islands Wednesday, 16th December
European Union (excl. Cyprus) Friday, 11th December
Other Europe, Cyprus Thursday, 10th December
USA, Canada Monday, 14th December
Rest of the World Tuesday, 8th December


Courier services will generally take 24-48 hours in UK and 3-5 days for outside UK. However, at Christmas peak time, we still advise the order dates above, just to esnure we can get your order delivered before Christmas Day.

We will, of course, continue to take and process orders taken right through the Christmas period.

Are you left handed or right handed?


Hasami Left HandSeveral of my students are left-handed. And we’ve recently had enquiries from customers asking if we could supply left-handed hasami. Well, I’ve found the perfect solution.

I have just received an innovative new Japanese-made hasami which is a modern alternative to traditional hasami. It features teflon-coated, hardened steel blades with easy-grip, thermoplastic handles for comfort and control.

Right-handed?  Don’t fret! the very same modern hasami are available in both left-handed and right-handed versions.
