Announcement   Hi there, thank you for stopping by. I hope you like my products, they are all designed and handmade by me.

I'm so excited with my new range of delectable Harris Tweed pet Accessories. The range will soon be expanding to include harnesses, dog coats and really practical dog beds.

The fabrics are a pure joy to work with and I have great support from the Harris Tweed Authority who have endorsed my work with several purchases which can occasionally be spied in their Facebook pages.

Here you will find my perennially popular other Harris Tweed products, fabric animal and birds The range is expanding all the time and includes Wedding cake toppers, key chains, doorstops and can be personalized for special occasions like mothers day or graduation. I also make bags, purses cushions and pillows.

I also like to create my own fabrics via the unique method of Hapa-Zome which involves hammering flowers directly onto fabric to create amazing prints which I embellish.
Here are some of my lovely customers reviews:

'Helen was brilliant. She took on board my requests and made beautiful little wedding mice ready for the top of our cheese tower. They are very well made, lots of attention to detail. Good communication and postage. Highly recommended!!

'amazingly beautiful * too cool * you normally find this type of decoration at stores like Liberty !!!!!!!!!'

'This little hedgehog is simply adorable. The seller is a pleasure to work with and the item was quickly received. I was very happy with this purchase but not nearly as happy as the 15 year old who received it for her birthday.'

About

From a Christmas gift grew a small creative business

Traditionally at Christmas I would always receive a craft kit in some shape or form. On frequent holidays to the Lake District I would always be dragging my parents into the many Craft shops from all this grew a passion for crafting in all kinds of media. I have experimented with Polymer clay, wood, yarn, paint, salt dough and jewellery but still I return to fabric and textiles again and again.

I love the feel of a quality cloth and will often stash fabrics until the perfect project comes along for it.

For a while I made one of a kind traditional Mohair collectors bears and from this discipline comes my love of the miniature and detail therein.

At the time of writing this I'm enjoying a rewarding relationship with Harris Tweed© This beautiful heritage cloth is protected by an act of parliament to preserve its uniqueness and protect its authenticity. I am very proud to be allowed to create and sell products made from this special resource.
