Swirl away & enjoy your online shopping experience. Art by Artist Sophie Appleton Huddlestone, with sweaters & bags lovingly created by County Swirls.

Hi I'm Artist Sophie Huddlestone (previously known as Artist Sophie Appleton)

Popular Artist with worldwide sales on another popular online shopping site as six.foot.sophie yet I seem to be hardly viewed here on Etsy, bizarre !

Happiest with a paint brush in hand, in my art studio, inbetween looking after the kids, dogs, chickens, & fish and not forgetting the hubby (whom makes all the Country Swirls items).

If we message each other please excuse my spelling as I’m dyslexic and have Irlen Syndrome.

Art has always been a major part of my life because a paint brush requires no literature skills and it was the one thing I could always shine at, giving me confidence and a wide open door for future possibilities. Thank you for walking in.

I’ve been selling Original Paintings and prints from my own artists website since 2011, my full range of art is on my own website, meanwhile I’m dipping my toe gently into the sea of this Etsy selling place with my Art.

All of the clothing and bags range is on here, but it can be viewed in more detail with more photos on (which is owned by myself and my hubby Keith).

Swirl away and enjoy :-)

    I started selling my paintings instead of hiding them away in draws. I’m still surprised by how popular it’s become, so I’m trying out Etsy. Quite shy, a bit of a happy recluse. Painting and designing embroidery is very therapeutic too, thank you.

    We started 'Country Swirls' in November 2015, I already have over 30 years experience in clothing & embroidery manufacturing. I just thought my wife Sophie's art works are so lovely that they would look great on sweatshirts & gifts too.

Refunds once we receive the item and it has remained unused , is not damaged, still had original tags / labels / swing tickets on, and is posted via tracked or recorded and it is dispatched to us within 7 days - your tracked or recorded postage code also helps if the returned item arrives to us later than 7 days because it proves that you posted it your end within the 7 days, so don’t worry if it is late due to the postage system.

The item must follow the requirements mentioned in the refunds section above. If the buyer prefers an exchange rather than a refund then the exchanged items postage costs are to be paid by the buyer and will be the same postage costs as stated on the requested exchange item. If the cost of the chosen item is different the amount already paid then I can refunded or charge extra resulting in the correct amount.

Once an Etsy Gift Card code or voucher has been used for our items, it cannot be returned for a cash value refund.
The available are PayPal, bank cards, Etsy vouchers and all other Etsy payment methods. Personally I prefer PayPal if possible - either with or without a PayPal account.

If the customer is from a country which will require custom fees or taxes etc to be paid on collection , the duties and associated fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
If you were charged full postage costs on each individual item when you bought more than one item - please contact me straight away to request a refunded for the excess joint postage costs.
