ebay if failin that i think argos do some
#2
have you got a nice market locally?? craft shops are expensive...or you could buy her a book about it? depends on her level. Does she need a kit or fabric to make her own?
#3
magazine subscription perhaps? these always have a free kit with them. maybe you could use teco clubcard points to buy a subscription.

i used to do it and found the best range was on ebay. have a look you will be amazed !

If your mum already does cross stitch she probably has all the basic kit. If not Readicut have a vast range and are always having sales and clearance lines:

A sewing frame and/or stand makes the task easier (I don't like hoops as they distort the fabric):

This site is also supposed to be very good but I haven't used it myself:

.and good lighting is essential and as ^^^^ choc1969 posts, Hobbycraft is good too. They also have offers and clearance lines (and craft classes) but you must visit to a store to buy:

If your mum has finished work, a good present is to have it professionally mounted and framed which is expensive but will be really appreciated. The hard part is finding a good framing shop with staff who know what they are doing. Hobbycraft used to do it but stopped a couple of years ago.:x

The best sewing aid present that I received was:

expensive but worth every penny.:thumbsup:
