Cute little slippers shipped very promptly with the size and color I custom requested. I ordered them for a dear friend who had a baby girl and she loved them, even to the point of using them in her professionally done infant photographs! The shop owner is very prompt, informative and beyond pleasant to work with. If I have a baby girl in the future I know she will get a pair or two. Thanks!

About

A lifelong love of textiles

My Etsy shop is my part of a global craft community and market place. I've been making and selling knitwear, patchwork and other sewn items to friends for many years on a very small scale. I've always dreamed of having a shop, and have had my nose longingly pressed up against the window of empty shop units in my village more times than I care to remember, fantasising about how I'd furnish, style and stock it.

Early in 2012 I had to take three months off my day job for cancer surgery, and this gave me the joyous opportunity to sew and knit all day long. It also gave me the time and head space I needed to set up my Etsy shop. Funny how a health crisis can actually become a positive turning point to think about what one really wants to do, and to turn that dream into reality.

Now I'm back at the day job, managing support services for disabled students at the Open University, but I'm squeezing in as much time as I can to my craftwork. My latest textiles project always travels with me so I can knit or sew in my lunch break. I'm part of a growing band of "5 to 9 ers", coming home from one job about which I'm passionate and spending my leisure time developing a cherished hobby into a small business.

My craftwork uses the the very best yarns, fabrics and notions that I can, but sourcing these isn't always about buying new. It's always been part of my philosophy to recycle and make do and mend; and that's bang on trend right now. My products are often the result of a gift of fabric left over from someone's curtain-making, or they might be accessorised with the vintage contents of a button tin that has come my way from a friend clearing out her cupboards. I do also source high quality garments from charity shops, or my own clothes that are no longer wearable, and turn the best bits into a patchwork play quilt, a Liberty print lavender sachet or some detailing on a corsage. So my products have a truly unique quality as well as very green credentials.

A valuable lesson that I'm learning is that it's okay to start small, and build up very gradually. With Etsy it doesn't matter if I don't have enough stock to fill a whole shop. I can add items at my own pace and still reach a global clientele.

    I've loved textiles work since I was four when my Mum taught me to knit. With those first wobbly stitches I made a tiny toy lion (well, that's what I said it was!) for my Dad's birthday (his star sign is Leo). My work has come on a bit since then.

I wouldn't ever send anything out which I wasn't 100% happy with, and I make every effort to photograph and describe my products accurately. However, if when you receive it, it isn't as you expected or you don't like it, please return it in the condition in which you received it and within one month of the date on which you received it, for an exchange or refund*.

Payment
At present I can only accept payment by PayPal or personal cheque in pounds sterling. Payment must be received and cheques must have been cleared before goods are shipped to you. I will email you with a receipt and shipping advice once I have received payment. If you wish to cancel your order, please let me know before my next available shipping day (Wednesdays and Saturdays) so I can return your payment.

I ship twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Shipping is by second class post or standard parcel post. Packages and parcels up to the value of £46.00 are insured by the UK Post Office. If you wish me to send your package or parcel by express or special delivery please contact me first to gain information on additional postal charges.
I'm delighted to sell to overseas customers but please ask me for confirmation of postage and packing charges before paying for your items.
I cannot take responsibility for payment of Customs and Excise or other import duties when shipping outside of the UK. I'm afraid you will need to bear this cost.
To keep packing costs low, and in the spirit of environmental responsibility, I do use clean and safe pre-used boxes and packaging.

As well as having ready-made items for sale, I welcome commissions, so please send me an email if you would like to discuss a custom order. I always pay a great deal of attention to customers' requirements when accepting commissions, and I will need you to supply me with accurate measurements for the person/space/piece of furniture for whom/which you would like me to make an item. Please note that I will not be able to accept returns on custom-made items.
