A long, long time ago, in a seaside town in the far west of Cornwall, I started to sew. My granddad had rescued an old Singer sewing machine from the dump and given it to me and I quickly found that I could use it to draw, something I’d always loved to do. I began to turn these drawings into things people could use, tea cosies, handbags and purses, and more and more people began to want to use them, keeping my Singer and I busy!
Now, more than ten years later, I still make my Singer draw most days but I also have a team of ladies who sketch, cut, sew and sell for me, from Perranporth to Penzance and Mount’s Bay to Manhattan. What can’t be sewn is sourced from the best companies we can find, most of them on our doorstep.
Everything you see in our range is designed and made with love, care and passion because we want you to want to use it everyday, we want you to have us in mind when you’re looking for unusual and thoughtful gifts and we want to make you smile.
It all starts with an idea, a drawing and a reel of thread…
