T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
— Clement Clarke Moore

Handmade is the name of the game.


Christmas is a very special time of the year. Families come together, gifts are given and Michael Bublé fills the airways.
It is so easy to be overwhelmed with Christmas gift buying. So many of us fall in to the trap of buying the cheapest, trendy item — a gift that soon collects dust.
We love to keep things local at Christmas time.
We have put our crafty talents to the test and come up with some unique, one-off creations — sewn, crafted and upcycled goodies, made with love.
Fill your home with homemade Christmas cheer this festive season.

Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.
