Do you believe in fairy tales?
Many years ago, a girl stood in the grounds of a castle having her fortune read. It was foretold that she was
‘inclined to be a little airy-fairy’.
This girl was indeed a bit of a dreamer, she believed life should be fun, creative and romantic. Destiny took her to a beautiful Scottish island under star-filled skies where she married and raised a family with her childhood sweetheart. She was very happy but yearned to create and make beautiful things. She gathered fabrics and threads and stitched pretty things by the fire in the long winter evenings.
To this day they live happily ever after on the family farm – Airy!
That girl is me and the island is Stronsay. I love to create unique, personalised quilts and cushions for children. My designs are bright, fun and cheery. I am passionate about my work and believe that everyone deserves something made especially for them, a gift to treasure, something as special and unique as they are.
If you believe that too, I’d love to sprinkle a wee bit of fairy dust and create something special for you.
Sadly, there are no actual fairies around to help me work. This means there are limited bookings for special commissions, however I can offer a truly one-to-one service and make something especially for you.
Occasionally I have ready-to-go quilts available – these are finished quilts that just need a name. If you don’t have time to wait for a commission, or the confidence to choose fabrics, these are for you.
Bespoke children’s clothing
I also make dresses and waistcoats for children, these can be made to order in your choice of fabrics.
Island Inspired Gifts
My island inspired gifts are all created by drawing inspiration from our beautiful island surroundings and nature. I love to beachcomb and I get inspiration from the amazing colours of shells, seaweed and the beautiful patterns left in the sand by the sea. The fabrics are all carefully chosen to reflect these colours and patterns and some items have a limpet shell sewn into the design so you can have a wee bit of Stronsay for your home.
Pretty Useful Gifts
My pretty useful gifts are exactly that, they are pretty but they are also very useful! My fabric covered notepads and placemat sets are sure to brighten up your desk or dining table. They can be made to order in a fabric theme of your choice too, just use the commision form to enquire. These items are also machine-washable, making them perfect practical gifts for anyone.
