About SolsticeDays

Sales 88
On Etsy since 2008

Handmade not Brandmade

Hello and welcome to my Etsy shop, Solstice Days, my name is Jo and I live in a lovely stone cottage in a small South Yorkshire market town.

Why the name Solstice Days? Well my birthday is June 21st, also known as the summer solstice and I got married on my birthday, hence the name Solstice Days!

I love to create pretty and practical items using both new fabrics in this shop and upcycled items from pre-loved fabrics, my other shop
https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/BarnsleyBlogBags.

The photo's you see are the items I've made, some are my own designs. When using 'pdf patterns', I credit the pattern designer.

Solstice Days can be found on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and my website www.solstice-days.co.uk has gallery pages featuring handmade items including shoulder bags, shopping bags, keyrings, household items such as peg bags, quilts, braided rugs, table runners and sewing machine covers.

Fabric left from projects is made into bags for the Sew Powerful Purse Project.
