About

Forgetmenot is an eco friendly wee shop which sells unique and quirky items made from preloved textiles to hopefully make you smile!

I'm Jen and I recycle preloved textiles into reloved, useful and fun items such as bags, pictures, cushions, hats and toys. All my work is handmade and each article is unique with its own little story. I only use well cared for textiles which have a known history.
Forgetmenot is not only about creating eco-conscious lovely items by recycling but also about celebrating reinvention and change. My previous work was actually as a physiotherapist/bioengineer working with severely disabled children, supplying and fitting a fabulous modular walking aid. This was wonderful work and involved a great deal of change and reinvention. The children had often been told they would never walk - however with the correct technical support - they found they could after all. Pretty amazing reinvention.
And now I've reinvented myself too.
I have always loved making things and in my former job I was involved with lots of technical and mechanical construction work. I am now just using these skills creatively with textiles instead.
I am based in Anstruther, an inspiring little fishing village on the east coast of Scotland and can see the ever changing sea from my workshop window.
