We are open!
After a bit of a tricky year with Tracy facing a serious illness, we are thrilled to say that things are much improved and we are back to making in the Studio and accepting orders.
Please bear with us if delivery times for are a little longer than usual while Tracy gets back up to speed. This only effects made to order products such as Knitters CarryAll Backpack and there is a turnaround timescale noted on the product page, we hope to be back to 'normal' speed soon!
Help us offset our Carbon Footprint
Small changes can make a huge difference in the fight against climate change. We have been working behind the scenes to become more planet friendly and have made some changes to our operations, packaging and Studio practices to support this.
We are committing to off-setting our carbon footprint by working with Tree-Nation.
For every order placed you will be invited to plant a tree in our forest...at no cost to you!
After checkout you will recieve an email from Tree-Nation taking you through the simple one-click process of planting the tree and information on the species, location, etc and we pick up the bill. We hope to work towards building a forest with Tree Nation and making a postive contribution towards Climate Change.
WE HAVE REINSTATED SHIPPING TO THE EU! However, EU customers should expect to pay VAT, customs charges and handling fees upon delivery to their country. Parcels will be sent with all the correct documentation however they could be in a delay in customs and therefore delivery. We cannot be held responsible for the additional costs or delays. If you decide to order from an EU country please know there could be charges that you have to pay, please check your own country's information and rulings before ordering. PLEASE do not order and then refuse to pay the fees for delivery, the parcel then gets returned to us and as a micro business we cannot afford to pay the liable costs. We LOVE our EU customers and friends and we are upset that there is nothing more we can do for this situation at this time (selling via Etsy didn't work out but we tried!).

15 pages of pattern with each step explained, not because it's hard to make (it's actually a really fun project!) but because we want to be totally clear and for it to be easy to follow for any level of sewing skills.
