Starlight Beads Website Update

The website for Starlight Beads has had a bit of a freshen up and we've moved the navigator bar from the right hand side of the site to the top each page. This way it's easily at hand and it should make life easier when hunting down the beads and pendants. Why not stop by and have a look?
There are some new pandora troll beads available here

Our new collection was given centre stage on the stand and we'll be launching it at the end of this week on the website. We've now unpacked all the markers and restocked the website with a few new goodies, including
  • Brittany Birch Needles, Crochet Hooks, DPNs, Cable Needles from £3.15 - £5.75

Atomic Knitting has been featured in four knitting magazines in the past month including The Knitter, Simply Knitting, Knit Today and Let's Knit. Our collections are selling fast and there will be a new collection launched in early September. Here's a preview of a few of the features in the magazines:
