FAQ

Where can I buy pieces?
When I do have any work for sale I will give all the details on my Facebook page, blog etc of where they will be for sale with names of stockists or gallery.

I don’t have pieces for sale unless I advertise them.

As my work is all different sizes the prices start from £550 for small work and go up from there.

Usually the dolls I make are tall , the hare ones are often a metre high…these start from £1,100 depending on how elaborate they are.

Owls are £1,249

When I get chance to sell myself which isn’t very often my prices have to match and reflect those from the last gallery showing.

I’m afraid I don’t reserve any work.


Can I order or ask for custom or commissioned work?

I love the freedom to make whatever I like and it’s how I’m happiest working so I don’t take on any custom or commissioned work unfortunately.

I don’t make anything to order I’m afraid.

When my shop is empty it’s closed and the link will not show or take you anywhere.

Do you ship outside of the UK?
I do when I have items that I have to sell personally i ship worldwide…..shipping is included in the price and will tracked and signed for..this is usually by courier.

Dolls as most of them are large will get sent out in a very strong cardboard drum.
Other items that go to my stockists tend to be a lot larger than what I would sell or send out myself.
Some of my work gets quite large and is heavy.

How can I keep up to date with work that’s coming up?
I give regular updates on my face book ‘page’ and blog. Whenever I have new work available myself I will give dates and times and 24 hours notice for customers outside of the U.K

If its new work for a stockist again I give information of where they are going and the contact information.

Do you make everything yourself or do you have any help?
Everything is made by me-everything.
I do ALL of the sewing, printing of labels and tea making…the lot. I love to work alone and whilst it is hard sometimes and does limit how much work I can make I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I have a bit of help from Natasha who assists me with my admin and accounts but she makes rubbish tea.

What training do you have?
I have no formal training in anything to do with textiles or sewing I’ve learnt it all myself.
