I'm really please to announce that my fabrics are now all printed in the UK, meaning I can proudly say my products are all 100% British, designed and made in England.
The fabric is lovely linen union with a natural colour as a base, which is digital printed using reactive dyes, giving a lovely finish and feel to all my products.
I've started to update my etsy shop with my beautiful new products, so all my tea towels are now available for purchase. I'm planning a photo shoot in the next couple of weeks so I will be updating my aprons images too, swiftly followed my blue and white cushions too. To give you a taster here are my tea towel images.
Christmas is not that far away now, believe it or not. Lots of making has been going on in preparation. I'm thinking a Christmas Cafetiere Cosy will look great in my new Christmas fabric. Have plenty now this has arrived today!
I'm booked in at the following Christmas Fairs this year.
20th November Chandlings School Oxford 1.30pm-5pm
