STITCHING Nativity pals HELP! I am looking for the ‘Nativity Finger Puppets’ charts that featured in issue 274 (Dec 2018). We have just formed a youngster’s group at our church and I thought it would be an idea to make a set for them to tell the Christmas Story.

Unfortunat­ely, we only offer the physical version of back issues from the last six months, but you can still get a hold of the digital version of the mag via our app on both Apple and Android devices. Add a bit of extra sparkle Send in queries via social media: www.facebook.com/ theworldof­crossstitc­hing I’ve already started stitching my Christmas cards. I’d love to make some of them extra fancy with little embellishm­ents or something sparkly, but I HATE metallic thread with a passion. Can you suggest anything else? to a stitched design. Sequins could bring that touch of sparkle you’re looking for, too. Check out Josy Rose* for their vast selection of flat, cup, square and star shaped sequins in a range of great colour options. We always recommend attaching them to your fabric using a Y-shape of three stitches, each going into the central hole in the sequin, to hold it securely in place.
