  1. I'm often asked if I can make a design using an item of clothing from something very special and the answer is yes!

    Jade asked me to incorporate her grandmothers dress into a garter for her daughter's wedding. Jade decided on 'Tilly' blue lace garter and I set to work. I managed to use the belt from the dress as it was a long enough fabric to use without having any joins in it. The dress itself was a beautiful blue floral organza, gorgeous but very slippery to work with. I've trimed the blue lace with Swarovski rhinestones and then added the organza running through the centre of the garter. The result was lovely and I had a very happy customer who sent me a wonderful review on guest book page.

  2. So today I added a new addition to my site.....wedding dress labels!

    I have always made these on request but it’s taken me until to list.

    There’s just one design for now but as always on my site they can be made in different in a choice of colours with any colour embroidery. If your thread colour is not listed just let me know, I have far too many available to list.

  4. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.

    Last year was a particularly difficult one for me as I lost my Mum just 2 weeks before I was due to complete on a long distance house move to be near my parents. It was in the middle of wedding season and to be honest without the patienice, understanding and love from customers I would have struggled to keep my Work going.

    I am now all set up in my new house in a lovely village in Lincolnshire. The house I bought also came with the old village post office which is now my new work room. I now have a lot more Space for shiny new embroidery machines :-)

    I‘m looking forward to creating lots more designs this year, especially my wedding garter range.

    As always if you need any help at all please do get in touch.

  5. So in amongst a very busy start to the year I have managed to come up with a new garter design which is already proving very popular.

    This is my 'Elizabeth' design and the embroidery choices are initials as shown, wedding date or brides new surname.

  6. This is currently one of my favourite of my garter designs. Made from my new guipure lace which really does have beautiful detailing on it. I've hand stitched Swarovski pale blue pearls all along the lace with either white or Ivory in between. Stitching the pearls on is very time consuming but also a favourite part of my job. ive embroidered the bride and grooms initials onto the front and then the wedding date on the inside back. This font is one of the new ones from my embroidery machine. If preferred I can instead stitch the brides new name. 

    This has proved such a popular garter design that I may well add some new colours for the beading early next year. Please click here for details.
