Making practical things for practical people.

When I left teaching, hubby and I bought a run down cottage in Mid Wales to do up and relish the peace and quiet of the country side.

There were no plans other than to restore the garden and walk the dogs over the miles of unspoilt paths that this area has to offer.

Life has a curious habit of putting opportunities to you that had never been imagined...welcome home daughter!

It all started by making a few spindle cases for her shop and developed into turning ideas into designs for functional bags, cases and aprons that knitty people would want to buy.

The needle cases and project bags were trialled by ourselves and friends, before the final design was put in the shop.

The other major design work were the craft aprons. We were tired of a heavy weight around our necks or waists when we were doing shows, so the functional cross over strap apron with good sized zipped pockets was designed.

I love searching for all the different fabrics that I use for my designs. The stack of colourful fabric in my workroom is a delight to behold!

I live and work in rural Mid-Wales and share my home with 2 lovely dogs, I try to keep everything as uncontaminated as possible, but can't guarantee no stray hairs. No members of my household smoke.

Returns and exchange details
Items are sold as seen, I want you to be happy with your order, please make sure you read the item description so you know exactly what you're buying!

Please note that colours appear differently on different computer screens. I do my best to make sure that the colours in photos are as close to the original fabric as possible.

If you have any questions please contact me.

If you are not happy with your item I will accept returns, but at the buyer's expense, unless the item is in some way faulty. Refunds will not be processed until the item is returned to me, I recommend you use a form of delivery that requires a signature for your own peace of mind. If you wish to return your item you must contact me within 14 days of receiving your item.

If an item arrives damaged I will refund, or replace the damaged part of your order.

If there are any problems with your order, please contact me. I will work with you to make it right.
You can pay for your order via Paypal, or using Etsy's Direct Checkout with a credit or debit card.

If you pay via e-check then I can't send the items until after the e-check has cleared, if it is an international e-check then this can take more than a week.

You can cancel your order at any time before the order has been posted out, please contact me to arrange this. Once your order has been posted I won't be able to refund you until the item is returned to me.
Parcels are only sent out early morning on Mondays and Thursdays due to the opening hours of my small local post office. I live in a remote location and it is not possible to send orders outside of these times.

I send all regular orders below £100 in value using a regular non-tracked service. Orders over this amount are sent using a tracked service at no extra cost.
If you would like to add tracking to any order below £100 in cost you can purchase this listing


I charge postage at as close to cost as possible.

I currently send all UK mail using a 48 hour service, most items arrive 2 days after posting, but it can take slightly longer.

Please allow up to 15 working days for UK mail from dispatch for an item to arrive, 20 working days for European mail, 25 working days for all other international mail.
In my experience post often arrives far quicker than this, but I can't report an item as missing with Royal Mail until after these periods of time have elapsed.
If it remains missing after this time I will do my best to replace your order or will offer you a refund.

International orders over certain values (this varies depending on your country) may be charged customs fees. This is out of my control, and any fees that the items incur are at the buyer's expense. I am more than happy to split parcels so they come in under the customs limit, please send me a message with your purchase and I will let you know if you need to pay any extra postage. It is illegal for me to mark parcels as a "gift".
Please check that what you are purchasing will be allowed through customs in your country, if items are returned to me due to being refused by customs I will refund the cost of the item, but not the shipping fees.

I print out the invoice generated by Etsy to use as your shipping address. Please make sure this address is correct. If you need it sent to another address please send me a message at the time of purchasing.
