So I’m looking into setting up a new online store focussed on hand made crafts for the home.

If you have an interest in buying UK made products, hand crafted items, or home wares then it would be amazing if you could take my survey, its just 14 questions and will take about 5 minutes to complete, Any information you could give me would be invaluable so I plead with you to take 5 mins out of your day to complete my survey and also share this post on your blog or facebook to spread the word and contact as many people as possible!

Thank You, I am forever in your gratitude!

Stitching into Paper

Wow was this hard work!

Stiched paper (detail) Bryoney Fawn
