Autumn doorstop range 09

This week I have been looking through my fabric samples and putting together ideas for my new season of products. These doorstops are the first installment, and I'm wrapped! They are £12.00 each and made from thick cottons and other sturdy fabrics. The materials are all locally sourced, and each is individually hand made. They come in three colourways - teal, charcoal, and cranberry.

Concept East Coast

I have a new stockist! A lovely shop in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, called Concept East Coast. The shop specialises in New England East Coast style home and lifestyle accessories. The owner of the shop, Anne Russell, liked my beach-themed items, and is currently stocking beach hut tea cosies, beach hut tea towels and illustrative and stitched cards... www.concepteastcoast.co.uk

MISI Makers, Bristol

Exciting news... I'm going to be part of the first 'MISI Makers' event, being held in Bristol at Paintworks on 7th November. I joined MISI (Make It Sell It) a few months ago, it's a lovely website like Etsy, full of hand made things by lots of artists/makers etc etc... http://www.misi.co.uk.
The event is in the lead up to Christmas, so I'm hoping it'll be festive, cosy, and frosty! Hope to see you there... x

New card illustrations...

In the last few days the illustrative juices have been flowing... so I whipped out my sketchbook and began. So far the sketch-fest has resulted in two new card designs: cupcakes and beach huts. To correspond with my tea towel designs and current range of products. These cards are available to buy on Folksy... http://www.folksy.com/shops/CharlotteMaceyTextiles
