Christmas 2005 issue 167

You'll love our Christmas issue - it's all you need for a perfect festive season of stitching! It's a bumper Tatty Teddy issue! Plus, we have three Tatty Teddy exclusives this month - the adorable new design of Tatty with his snowman friend, £500 of Tatty prizes to be won, and you can also read Tatty's very own story.

There's also the final four designs in Margaret Sherry's 12 Days of Christmas hanging - these four loveable characters complete the set. And we're sure you'll be unable to resist Diane Machin's stunning 'Little town of Bethlehem' design, with sparkly threads and rich jewel shades.

Or if you know someone with a winter birthday, anniversary or other celebration, you won't want to miss our stylish selection of cards.

And there's the perfect design for stitching in the run-up to December - our Christmas clock boasts 12 simple-to-stitch motifs, for a fun-filled day!

You'll love Archie bear too - he's dressed up in his Santa outfit, and ready for the mince pies! Lesley Teare has brought you a charming red robin in the snow, while Sheila Hudson has stitching to indulge yourself in, with her wintry floral design.
