Xmas Bank Holidays Next year we will not be closed as long but we may be closed for a week in June a warm weather holiday will be most welcome NEW ITEMS The only new item this quarter is a new addition to our Iron On Letter Motifs The new Sequin designs are bright and sparkly with each letter in one of six different colours We think they would look best as perhaps the Initial letter of a name mixed with the pink or black letters we already have in stock They are slightly more expensive but they really do stand out This month we have also changed the pack size available in the Pearl Elastic Cords Previously the Pearl colour was only available in full reels all sizes 0 5mm 0 7mm and 1mm are now available in packs of 3m too STITCHES TRADE SHOW The main reason for sending out this

Dianne s Knitting Yarns and Craft Kits If there is anything specific you would like us to look out for then please let us know asap You can email us leave a note on the CB Forum or if it is knitting

of you may know we were short staffed while I went into Hospital for a small operation It did not go too well and took me longer to recuperate than we expected That is one of the reasons this email is

make room for new stock We visit a Trade Fair in February and like to have all this done before we go We have been working 7 days a week to try and catch up but seem to be getting nowhere fast However

18th August 2004 You will still be able to order during this time there will be a notice on the site and confirmation emails will also let you know about the closure Your orders would be held on a

look forward to hearing from you all Webmaster Craftbits CPU Enterprises 15 07 04 Spring 2004 Newsletter Welcome to all our new and existing customers Spring has really sprung around here people are sneezing all over the place With the warmer weather our thoughts turn to the summer holidays and what to do with the children but more on that later first a little history lesson HISTORY 4 years ago some of Dianne s Knitting Yarns customers were asking where they could find small amounts of craft components They wanted just a few beads or one pair of eyes to complete a jumper or knitted toy They couldn t find anywhere online that would do this most of the sites they looked at had a minimum order amount or high postage costs The few sites they did find only had packs of 1000 beads or 100 eyes this isn t what their customers wanted Their investigations also showed that quite a few people wanted to test a craft by buying only a few items just in case they didn t like it Carole s Crafts now Craft Bits was born to fill this void Our Mission Statement was to supply small amounts with no minimum order to have up front postage costs and a simple to navigate site We hope we have achieved this and it will not change in the foreseeable future However everything must evolve and Craft Bits is no exception As we have grown we have noticed customers ordering multiple packs of some items more often We would like to serve these customers better and maybe keep some of our tester customers for a bit longer PRESENT The range of products we stock needs to grow We have recently added Iron on Rhinestones in 9 different designs at 1 65 each The Special Offers page is added to regularly and some of the Voting Forms see below are about new ranges FUTURE To aid us in building up Craft Bits we have now added Voting Forms to most of the product pages just click the pink V at the top of each page Some of the options on the form are for additional types of items i e Bump Chenille on the Chenille Stems page Some are for larger packs of items i e Boxes of 100 Chenille Stems in single colours We have not added prices to the larger pack options if you would like to know the approximate price before you vote please let us know and we will try to add these If there are any other options we have not added please let us know in the box at the bottom of the forms By adding your name email and asking to be notified if the item is added you are not committing yourself to anything After you vote you will be taken back to the same product page BACK TO THE CHILDREN We have been looking at kits for Childrens crafts we think this is the easiest way to get them interested We already have Pencil Cases full of Pony Beads and hopefully will soon have some Pompom kits If you have any other suggestions for kits or crafts to do with children please let us know at By the way Dianne s Knitting Yarns have just put down the price of their 3D By Me Kits which are ideal for children We hope you are happy with the direction we are going in and really do look forward to hearing from you all Webmaster Craftbits CPU Enterprises 19 04 04 Winter 2003 4 Newsletter We really can t believe it s been almost a year since we sent the last newsletter out sorry to all those who have requested one in the last few months we really have been too busy to think let alone write This time of year is traditionally our quiet time the rush of making Christmas Decorations and Presents is over Valentines Day is still a way off and Easter well we just can t think of making Chicks Spring Bonnets while the rain hits the window So we now have time to think and write about what we will do in the next year Firstly we would like to say a word about last year WOW We can t think of a better word to describe it the number of orders tripled and we were rushed off our feet all year Each month we thought we couldn t get any busier but we did with a massive peak in October 2003 that had us running around like greyhounds However we did have a couple of set backs this year Some stock was not living up to our standards we have withdrawn Alphabet Beads from our site and Pompoms have been put on the Special Offers page at discounted prices to clear some space We will stock these products again if we can find another supplier which has the right products at the right price and more importantly at the right quality We also had a few problems with staffing levels holidays unexpected illnesses and high order levels hit us hard a couple of times last year Thank you to everyone who was patient with us and understood about the late arrival of orders In our last newsletter we said we had moved our site to a different hosting company because of problems with reliability This is going really well and there haven t been any problems however if you know otherwise please let us know at We are still intending to put voting forms on the product pages where you will be able to vote for other colours types pack sizes etc The more votes the more likely we are to stock what you need If you want to give us some suggestions in the meantime please email us at The popular Special Offer Beads will be back this year We buy very large bags of mixed beads and spend many happy hours sorting and bagging them It s like putting a kid in a sweet shop and we all join in however we never know what we are going to get or how much of each The pages are not dynamically updated and are only changed a couple of times a day This means we sometimes sell out and cannot fill your order we always let you know and give you an option on what to do please bear with us Hopefully we will be changing to a database driven site soon this should solve the problem We had very little feedback about putting a customer area on the site and having looked at other craft forums we have decided not to go ahead However we would like to have an active links page If you have a website or shop selling or displaying your creations you could advertise it free at the webmasters discretion email Finally Thank you for making this a really FAB year for us and we hope you will continue to browse our site and order We really do look forward to hearing from you all Webmaster Craftbits CPU Enterprises 12 01 04 Spring 2003 Newsletter In the last couple of months we have had some major problems with the company who hosted our site Many customers noticed that from time to time all our images disappeared some brave souls still ordered though Thank You So Much We were also unable to update our site for long periods of time items went out of stock but we were unable to let you know before you ordered We are really sorry to anyone who was affected and hope you will have another look now we are fixed Yes We have moved to another hosting company and are very happy with them However anyone who may have book marked us with a page name like www knitting yarn co uk css will find this link may no longer work We are still part of the CPU Enterprises group and have a link with Dianne s Knitting Yarns but we now have our own hosting for www craftbits co uk BTW Dianne s Knitting Yarns was also having problems and have moved to www cpu enterprises com All this has kept us very busy over the last 4 months hence the absence of Newsletters But now we could
