A Little Bit about my Business.

My small greeting card business has grown gradually since 2003. We now have many loyal customers across the U.K. including several very prestigous retail outlets and galleries.

The designs for my cards are taken from my surroundings at home, where I work in the beautiful Lancashire countryside, with a panoramic view towards the Irish Sea. All my cards are entirely designed and handmade myself here in my converted cowshed. Each cards features one of my unique handmade embroiderys. I stitch the embroideries here in small batches, using a variety of stitching and textile art techniques, including appliqué, machine embroidery and fabric painting. Unusual fabrics are incorporated with each other, and layered to produce my range of exclusive greeting card designs. The printed background of the cards are often taken from my more intricate free-machine embroidery, paintings and drawings then finished and embellished by hand. 

About Elspeth.

✿ My Love of Textiles and Stitching ✿

From an early age I loved painting, drawing, snipping up bits of paper, and I made my dolls clothes on my mother’s sewing machine. I thoroughly enjoyed art and needlework at school. During my teenage years I made most of my own clothes and bags, and was a true 70's young hippy! I completed the Fashion Textile Design degree course at Brighton in 1984. Specialising in woven textiles, I won various prestigious Royal Society of Arts awards, including the coveted Travel Bursary. After my degree course, I worked in Retail Buying, Design Consultancy and ran a small business making and selling woven designs. In 2004 , what was a hobby, making cards for family and friends turned into a  new small business.
