  1. A few weeks ago I added my 'Meadow' garter to the site and it has proved to be a best seller.

    I had a wonderful thank you card with a gift inside from my customer when she recieved her order. Such a lovely surprise, thank you Lesley x

    Thank You

     

    As the lace is so pretty I decided 3 simple pearls was all that was needed on the front. This is an affordable garter at just £12.99 but has the option to have extra's added as detailed below.

    It is still custom made and so if you need an extra small through to a plus size that is no problem at all, just let me know a leg measurement and I will make to fit especially for you.

    It looks lovely as it is or extra's can be added which include a sixpence bag (genuine sixpence coin included) and personalisation at £4.00 each.

    If you would like to purchase one for yourself or a gift you can see more details on this page HERE.

  2. Top of my to do list for 2020 was to start making personalised handkerchiefs. I've turned so many customers away over the years but I simply didn't have time to fit them in.

    I've kept my first design nice and simple with a delicate bow & 3 Swarovski rhinestones to add just a touch of sparkle.

    This design is embroidered with 'Bride' but I can also embroider with a name, initials or wedding date.

    As customers order them I will add more photo's and design. More details HERE

    I hope you like x

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.
