Hiromi Hughes' Profile

About

My name is Hiromi Hughes, a busy mother of two from Melbourne Australia. I've always enjoyed art and craft and have spent many years making my own hand made gifts. I grew up in Tokyo Japan, but have lived here in Australia since 1991.

I have always encouraged my children in their play and enjoy watching them grow and develop. I love to watch and listen as they play and see them using their imagination as they explore and learn about their world.

Like most kids, they love their toys and I have always wanted to provide them with a variety of toys. I also want my children to understand and feel the care and love that is put into gifts that are hand made and not just purchased ready made from a store.

My name is Hiromi Hughes, a busy mother of two from Melbourne Australia. I've always enjoyed art and craft and have spent many years making my own hand made gifts. I grew up in Tokyo Japan, but have lived here in Australia since 1991.

I have always encouraged my children in their play and enjoy watching them grow and develop. I love to watch and listen as they play and see them using their imagination as they explore and learn about their world.

Like most kids, they love their toys and I have always wanted to provide them with a variety of toys. I also want my children to understand and feel the care and love that is put into gifts that are hand made and not just purchased ready made from a store.

I want my children to grow up valuing their family and friends and appreciating the true meaning of gifts, especially those that are made with love and affection by others.

So I got creative, and started making some toy, pretend play food from felt and other materials & my children absolutely loved them. I then began making these pieces for friends & family & received more wonderful feedback.

I then began to sell my work online. Once again, the feedback I received was wonderful and greatly appreciated. BUT, I had a problem, in that there is only one of me, and when I sold one of my "Felt Cuisine" sets, I had to sit down and make it ! Also, many of my customers were contacting me asking if I could tell them or show them how I created these piece. The result of this of course, is the "Felt Cuisine" series of step by step illustrated craft guides...

I hope you enjoy my guides, and may they bring you and your loved ones closer together and put smiles upon the faces of children (of all ages) all over the world.

Warmest Regards
