The Great Owl Migration is in full swing. The racks are being dismantled, the boxes are multiplying, the finished works are being packed carefully. Читать далее →

The disheveled owls scurry through the nooks and crannies of our old hollowed-out log and find all sorts of forgotten and unaccounted for things. It is possible that at the end of the year we will surprise you with a couple of them.

In the meantime, we continue to pack and ship your orders. We work in two shifts. Three shipments of needlework happiness have already left to their owners. We hope to have the remaining orders fully processed by November 28th in order to leave on Tuesday. It turned out that you love us a little more than we've expected. 

From today, the store operates only for accepting orders, autonomously, that is, without the participation of owls and people. No one calls anyone, no one answers letters or messages (until we get our new work places and the Internet).

We plan to start working as usual after December 5th.

There are a few days left before the New Year, and we have not yet told you about the work of the store during the New Year holidays. We're fixing it.

Today on December 27 has been the last shipping day in 2022. So all the confirmed and paid orders have been taken to the Post office or to the courier services offices.

From , 2022 to January 8, 2023, the Owl Forest team goes on vacation all together. During this period, the store will operate on its own.

That means:

🎄 You can buy digital charts in our partner's Etsy shop, there will be holiday sale there!
🎄 We accept orders, but we do not process or ship them;
🎄 We do not hear calls, we do not read letters, we do not answer messages;
🎄 we feed workaholic owls with salads and sweets so that they don’t have time and energy to work 😊

Orders placed and paid after 10:00 Moscow time on December 27, 2022 will be shipped in the new year, after January 9.

Please note! Order processing time after the holidays may be extended.

We wish you all health, wonderful weather and joyful magical holidays!

Your Owls. 🎄❄🎉

We are happy to bring you some good news. Our partner and friend in France has opened a Etsy shop where you can now buy OwlForest Embroidery digital charts. It's great to have friends all over the world 😊. In 2017, when we founded our company, she helped us a lot and now she is doing it again. We gave her the rights to sell our patterns so that you can still cross stitch what you like. At the moment the store does not have the entire product range, but you can write your wishes, and the charts will appear for sale.

Dear friends!

Due to the fact that international payment systems have ceased operations in Russia, we temporarily do not accept orders from abroad.

All the orders placed and paid earlier have been dispatched as usual. Delivery times may be extended due to the geopolitical situation. You can track your shipments in your personal account on our website or using the link

We are looking for the alternative ways to accept payments from other countries.

The orders placed in our e-store but not paid will be reserved until payments become available. We will contact you then to clarify the validity of your order and tell you how you can pay for it.

We will keep pleasing you with free charts and hope that the current situation will be over in the near future.

Thank you all for your support, for the kind words you are sending us in messages.

Best wishes,
Your Owls.

Dear friends! The last shipment of this year has taken place today, December 24th.

We are preparing for the New Year and Christmas with might and main. We decorate Christmas trees, collect salad recipes, get the festive mood from the far corner of our consciousness, refresh it and bring it into working order. How are you dealing with this?

Opening hours of our store on the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays:

From December 25, 2021 to January 9, 2022, all our owls will rest and gain strength, the store will be open only to receive orders. We don’t read letters, we don’t reply to messages, we turn off computers and close them in the storage closet, hide the storage closet key to the bottom of the largest bowl with the strangest new salad from our most customer-oriented sales owls ))))

We return to work on January 10, the first two days with renewed vigor we answer all the accumulated questions, we confirm and process all the orders. We begin to assemble them. Shipments in the first business week will be three times, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 12, 13 and 14 so that all the orders will be sent.

We wish you all health, wonderful weather and joyful anticipation of the most magical holiday!

Please check the lists, look for yourself, if you are not on the lists, but you have finished your work and posted it before November 17, please write to us to . Check the spelling of the tag #Something_Owlish_Finished in your Instagram posts. Among all the finalists, our competent and impartial owl jury will choose the winners.

Unexpectedly long May holidays will be in Russia this year.

We decided to take this chance and have a good rest. In the period from May 1 to May 10, the OwlForest online store will work only for accepting orders, all employees will be on vacation, we will not respond to messages, we will not process orders, we will gain strength in all available ways. ?

The last shipment of orders before the holidays has been today, on Friday April 30th. The first shipment after the holidays will be on Friday May 14th. We will have three days to confirm all orders, respond to messages that will have accumulated over the weekend, and prepare orders for shipment.

What will we do during the holidays? Three of our old friends owls show our plans, they were drawn two years ago, but their actions are still relevant for us ??? The only exception to the vacation plans will be the release of the second part of Alice in Wonderland on May 7.
