About us

A Quick Synopsis of our Little Business.

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

Our cards are designed and entirely handmade in Lancashire in our Farmhouse Studio converted from the old cow shed. Each one of our cards features an exquisite unique handmade embroidery in a contemporary design. The embroideries are stitched 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 a range of unique, individual greeting card designs. The printed background of the cards are taken from my more intricate free-machine embroidery, paintings, hand drawn Calligraphy and sketches then embellished by hand with hand painted glitter, bows, ribbons etc.

All our cards are printed here in our small Studio, giving the flexibility that we like to offer. As a small U.K. based business we are able to offer customers a truly personalised service, with smaller orders and special requests our speciality. Also we are able to offer speedy and reliable delivery times. 

Most cards are suitable for personalised wording. Cards can be left blank on the front for framing which is very popular.  Corporate Christmas cards are available and wholesale customers are very welcome.

About Elspeth.

I have always been fascinated by textiles and stitching from when I made my dolls clothes, and later my own clothes. Since I can remember, I have always loved painting, cutting up little pieces of paper, and fabric, and generally making a mess! I went on to do a degree in Textile Design, specialising in weaving. At college in Brighton, colour facinated me, and I specialized in woven textiles. I won the prestigious Sir Frank Warner Memorial Medal given by the Royal Society of Arts for the ‘Best Textile Design', also I was also awarded a coveted RSA Travel Bursary.  During the 80's and 90's I worked in Retail Buying, Design Consultancy and had a joint enterprise with a close friend making and selling woven designs. In 2003 , what was my hobby, making embroidered cards for family and friends turned into this small business.
