About Us....

Crazy for crafts.... Having worked in the design industry for many years, my products, ranging from baby hampers to printed digital designs are extraordinary one-of-a-kind pieces. I was employed as a graphic designer before I turned my hand to sewing. It was my love of textiles that finally propelled me to take the big leap towards self-employment and I love to take an order and turn it into something really special that will be cherished by its owner for ever. I regularly take commissions from turning childrens clothing into funky quilts to photographic cotton quilts for anniversary and birthday gifts. I just love my work and look forward to meeting you my adored client in the near future . I also create one-of-a-kind baby hampers that Moms adore and are a great way of welcoming little baby into the world.


Our Design Philosophy

Good design doesn't look just colourful and funky, it must also have a purpose, it must communicate to the recipient. We are always careful not to overdo, saturate or make a piece too fussy. Some of the nicest memory cushions are pure white with a name embroidered in a single colour. That said, colour is wonderful in communicating emotions and with our products which are all personalised, colour can make an item even more precious. So, I hope you like our pieces, we will be updating images regularly so please keep in touch.
