Merry Christmas Everybody

Well it's that time of the year to sign off and wish everyone a very happy Christmas and all good things for the new year.
Thanks to everyone who have been to the shop and bought gifts or visited me at various fairs and on line it's much appreciated.
The new year will bring new ideas and designs as well as the start of the wedding season so I look forward to seeing clients old and new.
Just in case there are a few last minute present hunters I will be open chistmas eve from 10am till 1.30 when I will then close for a break and re open Tues Jan 9th.
Have a wonderful Festive break.

Plaids Herringbones And Other Gifts


At this time of year I get many requests to make a special gift for someone. They vary from hats to bags and other accessories but each one is unique and just perfect for the recipient.
I made a very bright checked turban beret in the wool cloth above. It was a birthday gift from her friends who she plays viola with in a orchestra for a northern opera company. 
Beautiful cloth to work with from Avoca Ireland. In Ireland they have wonderful shops and their own cafes and cookbooks.I'm not sure if they have their own stores here in the U.K. but you can buy their garments in a few places.
The past week was very busy and I met some lovely people at the two events I went to. Thanks to everyone who came along and supported me by buying gifts and hats for themselves.
The teal silk headpiece in the box has just been to a wedding this weekend. Lovely colour ! 
The red leather bags in my images are just about the most perfect Christmas gift, made my hand by my friend Cathy Edwards. I have two variations of designs at the moment.
I expect they will soon be finding their way underneath someone's Christmas tree.
So two weeks left before Christmas. I have quite a few orders to catch up with this week and Sunday I will be at East Riddlesden Hall for their Festive Fair. Might see a few folks there it's a very nice place to visit.
Personally I am a little behind with my own purchases but I'll catch up!
