Fold Over Elastic now in store!

I have added some 25mm (1″) fold over elastic in my Craft Supplies section of the website.


I also have a colour chart of available colours which can be pre-ordered.

There may be up to a 4 week wait for the pre-order items.

I will be placing an order once a week on a Friday, so if you want to make an order, contact me with what colours and quantity of each you require.

I will then make a listing for you and it MUST be paid for before I will place the order with my supplier.

Once I receive the order I will post by your nominated post method. (Standard or Express)

Orders are to be in 1 metre increments and quantities of more than 1 metre will be kept in one length.

If you would like to purchase any of the pre-order fold over elastic, please pop me a message at

This offer is for my Australian customers ONLY.

New pattern delays due to health issues

Hi all,

Just popping in to say Hi!

I had a heart attack last Thursday 5th January and also have urosepsis.
I was very sick Thursday will fever of 41.9 degrees Celsius, shaking uncontrollably, vomiting both ends, and chills. 🤒

I was taken to ED by ambulance and was put onto strong antibiotics and fluids. Strong pain medication didn’t work, so I was pretty wiped out. Blood tests daily so I feel like a pincushion, and lots of great nurses and doctors looking after me.

Thankfully, Monday after being transferred to another hospital for an angiogram, I didn’t need to get any stents. I do however have some calcification on my arteries which they’ll monitor.

I’m on enforced rest, got my legs up so I don’t have any bleeding from my femoral artery, that they cut to do the surgery.
I’m happy I’m home now after 4 days in hospital. I can’t sew for a while which sucks, but grateful to be alive.

I had huge plans to release more patterns this month but that’s on hold until I’m better.

In the meantime I’d love anyone who hasn’t already, request to join my Facebook pattern group Nancy Stroop Patterns. There’s a featured post that gives you the discount code to get a huge 40% off my PDFs everyday. It would make me so happy to get more members soon.

Anyway. I hope you’re all sewing up a storm.

Love Nancy xx ❤️

New hours & postage days.

Hi everyone


Starting immediately, I’m going to be altering my working hours and postage days.

Most of my days and nights I’m crocheting, knitting or sewing orders, so I’m not getting much time to add to my website.

Monday to Friday I’ll be working on orders, whether it’s crochet, knitting or sewing, during the day 8.30 am to 4.30pm.

After that is my time to spend with family, work on new projects or just rest. This includes weekends.

Postage Days

Due to increased fuel costs, I need to cut back how many times I post. We live nearly a 30km round trip to our closest post office. I’ll be posting Monday or Tuesday and Thursday or Friday. This will depend on if I have any completed orders to post.

Winter Sale

Don’t forget there’s a site wide 25% off sale now on, until June 30th. (Current stock only)

I hope you understand that I’m not making much, if any, actual profit from my items as they take many hours to complete in most cases.

I am unable to do markets etc due to my health issues, so my website is my only outlet for my creations.

My website is open 24/7 so you can buy anytime.

Please continue to support my small home based business as it means so much to me.

Thanks Nancy xx
