"It all started when my children were much younger, making fun costumes and play things for them. Friends and family became interested and slowly over time I became busier and busier. After re-locating to Nuneaton it became obvious that I couldn’t find the right quality items that I needed to make what I wanted. My partner encouraged me to take it further by selling craft items, fabrics and felts at Fairs and local markets offering a range of good value and quality items. One day over a coffee, my friend who has a daughter with a sensory processing disorder, was complaining about the lack of choice and the cost of a weighted blanket which her daughter needed and asked could I help? After a lot of research I made her a weighted blanket, they loved it and since then, word has spread and I now make weighted scarves, lap pads, blankets and sensory items. We use bright colours, themes and children can choose the fabric themselves knowing that they will use the end product and it’s to their liking."
