About extraspecialtouch

Sales 2,428
On Etsy since 2009

I love to create gorgeous things!

I have always loved to sew and craft and make gorgeous things. From dolls dresses when I was little, to dress making through college and then a career with the fashion / textile and now sewing machine business.
I have always adored embroidery, surface decoration and love vintage style. I have studied various courses at college from free machine embroidery, traditional millinery, and theatre Costume. I have also worked for many years within the digital embroidery field with domestic and industrial embroidery machines.
Extra Special Touch combines my love of all of these areas, and gives me a great excuse to hide in my studio and play with gorgeous fabrics, threads and trimmings!
I gave up my full time job in 2013, after the birth of my son, and decided to focus on being a full time Mummy and growing my wedding business.
Now, I have a dedicated sewing studio within my house, and work around my two young child. My wedding and bridal business has gone from strength to strength, and I've been lucky enough to have been featured in several national wedding and bridal magazine and online wedding blogs.
In 2017, after several requests for rude embroidered handkerchiefs, I set up a sister Etsy Shop called The Smutty Handkerchief Company. This shop sells embroidered hankies which are ideal funny gifts (often rude and funny ) for birthday, anniversary, Mother's day and Father's Day. Please don't visit Smutty Handkerchief Co if your easily offended!
