Hi! I'm Sandra and I work from my little sewing room in my home in the beautiful costal town of Prestwick, South Ayrshire, UK.

I would go as far to say from a young age I have always been creative. Art was my favourite subject as school. I am a people person, have always been enthusiastic, coming up with great ideas, volunteering to help with art club at playgroup and any time at night I would be self-learning, drawing, knitting and crocheting. I have been selling through my Social Media Pages & Website for a few years now and have built up a lovely group of customers, many of whom I now consider friends!

I currently studying HND Art and Design and am about to go into my 3rd year. I am a mum to my trio of children. I am blessed to be able to follow my dreams of creating beautiful items every day!

How my business idea come about?
I love to try new things and being creative was always a passion. I liked the idea of creating pictures using free motion embroidery and self taught myself the process. The first picture I made was a family portrait for the wall in my new extension. All my friends and family loved it and asked me to make one for them. After that it just snowballed.

How did I come up with the logo name?
I wanted a “happy” word because my pictures are all about fun. “Jolly” seemed to work well. As my products are of the highest quality and handmade – “Well Made” seemed to fit the bill. The illustration of the dog, is my own pet and it’s a fun illustration which visually represents my products.

What my business is about?
Jolly Well Made specialise in creating personalised free motion embroideries handmade to order.

"A gorgeous embroidered personalised gift that is perfectly handcrafted to celebrate any occasion such as an anniversary, birthday or wedding, the list is endless! Capture a special memory or landmark in a unique way to treasure forever".
​Embroideries are produced using the free motion embroidery machine technique. This is a form of stitching with the sewing machine, where the needle is used to draw like a pencil or pen would. As this is a manual process rather than a digital reproduction, any part using free motion embroidery is unique and cannot be reproduced, unlike with computerised embroidery. I use many different fabrics so each commission is unique. Text included in the design will simulate hand writing rather than a digital computerised finished. All designs are finished to meet your specification and delivered gift wrapped.
