Michelle will be taking a weeks leave from the 2nd to the 9th of August. Although there are several people involved in the work behind Jodyri Designs Michelle is the sole dyer and so any order placed after 5pm UK time on Friday the 1st of August will be subject to a 15 working day rather than 10 working day turnaround to be dyed. Also as Michelle will be away from home any PDF charts ordered during the week will not be sent out until Monday the 11th of August.
Please do bare in mind at any time when placing an order including hand dyed fabric and/or threads that although a small stock of some threads are kept most orders are dyed as they are received. As said Michelle is the only one who prepares and dyes your orders so we do require 10 working days to dye and package an order before it can be shipped.
June 2014 is Out of Orbit month
We are very lucky during our time as stitchers to have become friends with and met a great number of truly talented people. One of these people is Chele Cooke and we are very happy to be celebrating with her the upcoming release of her second novel in the Out of Orbit series having completely devoured the first one!
We highly recommend the books to anyone who loved Hunger Games, Harry Potter and any other series which is character driven and set in a fantastical world that draws you in. We are offering a new set of Out of Orbit themed threads and the Ltd Edition this month is also called Out of Orbit and having stitched with it it is now Michelle's new favourite. Also for any customer who purchases either book we will send you a 10% discount code for Jodyri Designs with proof of purchase.
Out of Orbit is a sci-fi series written and by UK author Chele Cooke. The first novel in the series, ‘Dead and Buryd’, has been praised as an exciting, easily enjoyed story, even for those who don’t usually read science fiction. With a diverse cast of relatable characters, it’s easy to get sucked into the volatile world of Out of Orbit, where the weather can be as deadly as the enemies.
In between cross stitching obsessively and writing for over a decade, Chele Cooke is just starting out as an author. Her first novel, Dead and Buryd, is being followed up by ‘Fight or Flight’ less than 12 months after Dead and Buryd’s launch. She also has a number of short stories available to read free on her website www.chelecooke.com and an original paranormal serial, ‘Teeth’, that is released every week at http://www.wattpad.com/story/11810987-teeth
Chele and her novels are available on Goodreads at https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/7257036.Chele_Cooke

Jodyri Designs is a small web based business in the UK run by Michelle Easters. Michelle designs cross stitch charts and produces a range of hand dyed cotton threads and fabric, she also offers a custom charting service making a design specifically to your requirements.
Michelle has been designing cross stitch charts for many years and is a stitcher herself enjoying Hardanger, Counted Thread work, Quilting and Crocheting as well as cross stitch. As a stitcher Michelle understands the importance of having a chart that is easy to follow with well thought out symbols that you can distinguish between.
Charts are available via email as a PDF or posted, threads and fabrics are all hand dyed individually there is no mass production and so orders can take up to 10 working days before despatch. Custom charting can be anything from converting a photograph to designing something unique specifically for your requirements, the Koi Carp Card is an example of a custom chart that has since been released for general purchase. If you have any queries, suggestions or comments please contact Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
