I love Christmas so much I set up my own shop!

How did my business start? Well, in 2010, trying to work out how to make Christmas even more special for my two girls, I decided to start making decorations for our home. I tried my hand at rag wreaths, made a gorgeous advent calendar from felt and eventually treated myself to a sewing machine and started buying Christmas print fabrics.

In 2011 I set up The UK Christmas Store Ltd, and bought in some beautiful ornaments and decorations, made from natural materials. I turned the fabrics into mini tote bags which sold really well at Christmas fairs around Yorkshire.

2012 sees me back with the sewing machine producing more mini tote bags, cushions, doorstops, bottle bags, turning to felt hand sewn advent calendars when the machine gets packed away each night.

For 2013 I am experimenting with knitting again, whilst still expanding my range of fabric Christmas items.

All stock is made by myself in our lovely home in beautiful picturesque North Yorkshire, UK.

    Hi. I'm a mum to two gorgeous girls and while they are at school I get creative! I have always loved making things but concentrated on knitting and baking until recently when I treated myself to a sewing machine to make things for the family.

Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop. I really wanted to show my children how to have a handmade Christmas and started off by making a felt advent calendar for them. This led to experimenting with other festive fabric creations and I decided to pop them all in this shop to share with you. The range is sold under the umbrella of my company but is all produced by myself on my own little sewing machine at home.

Enjoy xx
