Well... my name's Claire and my love of craft started at an early age with an obsession with art attack and Blue Peter! I realised that my techniques needed refining and so went on to study art and design at college. For my final project I created a range of teddies using lots of different fabric manipulation techniques. I then went on to study printed textiles at Loughborough University and my final collection ended up being a range of men’s wear items including ombre scarves with flocked detailing.
After leaving university I could not afford my own printing studio so I went back to creating the bears and added to my skill set by taking some free motion embroidery classes with Naomi Ryder and Lara Sparks. I have now extended my range to include cards and soft furnishings. As well as sewing for others I also create my own clothing and have started blogging about my creations. Read my blog here.
I love creating cards and gifts that are unique and as individual as the recipient and I hope you found what you were looking for. Thank you again for visiting my site and if you have any special request please let me know as I am sure I can help!
Purchased as a gift for a friend who loved it - a perfect keepsake! Fantastic service, thank you.
I ordered the Corgi from Claire on the 12th of May. Claire made Corgi for me in the colour I requested and shipped Corgi to me in Australia all within 8 days. I'm very impressed! Corgi is very well made and just gorgeous. He's proudly one-of-a-kind in Australia :-)
