    My love of miniatures and dolls' houses.

    MY SHOP CLOSED ON THE 30TH APRIL 2019. Due to continuing ill health I am no longer able to make any more miniatures. I would like to say a big thank you to all my customers. My best wishes to you all.

    All the items that you see in my shop have been entirely made by hand by myself. I design, stitch, sew and create every item with all the love I have for everything miniature.

    Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by tiny things. I remember a dolls' house I had when I was small, and I loved it so much.

    I have collected miniatures for many, many years and have been building my own dolls' house for them. I love to sew and make tapestries. I have designed and made many carpets and rugs for my own dolls' house. So many in fact that I don't have enough rooms for them all. But still I want to make more.

    I love the Arts and Crafts movement and the designs of William Morris and his contemporaries. Many of my designs have been inspired by William Morris patterns.

    I don't want to stop stitching miniature carpets or stop designing them. So I have decided to make them for other people to buy. Many people also love stitching as much as I do, but maybe they cannot design the charts. So I am offering my designs as PDF files which can be downloaded from Etsy, so that you can stitch them yourself.

    I have now introduced a range of printed fabric carpets and textiles, based on my hand stitched designs. These are printed onto faux suede fabric and then hand finished by myself.
