Hobby gone mad!

Well, as I said, I love to make things. I've always loved to make things, so what started out as a hobby has become my business.

Growing up I was encouraged to sew, knit and crochet by my wonderful Mum. She always had something on the go, as did my Grandmothers. Knitting socks..making clothes..making gorgeous embroidered pictures...parchment crafts...I was surrounded by wonderful women who made things.. whether that was as a hobby or out of necessity.

This hobby of mine soon grew as people said 'can you just make me one of those?' I love using natural materials like pure wool felt, cottons and wool, and I like to keep things as simple as possible. I also love buttons - playing my Nan's button tin as a child - and ribbons. I'm now very happy to be stocking some of these on my website.

Recycling the packaging my items comes in is very important to me too. When I send out a package it might not look the prettiest at first glance but you can guarantee that it will be filled with gorgeous items.

I have my own website too, and since I learnt to drive at the ripe old age of 37!! I've started going to craft fairs. This year (2012) the business has just taken off like a rocket...it's absolutely amazing. I love it! I love that people want my things...things I've designed and made. Things I've put my heart and soul into. I now have a few of my things in small retail outlets too which is just fantastic.

I use Royal Mail for all deliveries.

UK - Items are sent out first class post and I obtain proof of postage. If you would like that extra reassurance, you can add Recorded Delivery to your order. Lost mail claims cannot begin until 15 working days have passed.

Overseas - Items are sent out using Airmail and I obtain proof of postage. I attach a customs label to your parcel where necessary, but I cannot guarantee that you will not be liable for any further charges that may be applied once it arrives in your country. For extra reassurance, you may add the International Tracked and Signed option to your order. Royal Mail states that parcels to Europe will take 3-5 working days, and for everywhere else it should be 5-7 working days. I have found that those times actually vary from 5 days right up to 18 days. Lost mail claims cannot begin until 20 working days (Europe) or 25 working days (Rest of the World) have passed.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your item please contact me so we can discuss any problems. If the issues cannot be resolved then a full refund will be given, once the items have been returned to me (at your cost).
Additional policies and FAQs
Your gorgeous item may arrive in recycled packaging as I am trying to reduce my consumption of resources, but this will not affect it's quality/appearance. Thank you.
