Stop Press ;p

A few weeks back my business was featured in the Nottingham Evening Post.  This is a local paper for the Nottinghamshire area.  So its kind of a big deal, seeing as the main part of my business is aimed at customers in Nottingham.  I had a double page spread in the weekend magazine.  

I met the writer Riah Matthews at an event in December 2011, which i also made an appearance in the Nottingham Post.  See below, bottom right in the red dress.

Riah came and visited me in my old studio in Netherfield, since then i have moved to West Bridgford.  We talked about my love of all things vintage and mid century. 

 I told her how i had always had an interest in sewing as my mother was a dressmaker, you can read more about my back ground on my website. 

 I also explained how my hobby turned into a business all because i needed to raise the money to buy my pug, Maybellene.  Who has now turned into a business mascot and famous in her own right.  I have had really good feed back from this article, i even had someone chase me down the street to tell me they had seen me in the paper, we chatted for a while about vintage fashions and how much she loved my dresses.  I was really flattered that i had been recognised!

More of my work was featured in a one off edition of Autumn Brides, a free magazine which 5,000 copies were distributed through out the city.  It features Kate's wedding.

 A massive thank you to Riah for featuring me in all these editions.  If you run a magazine or a news paper and would like to feature me, my pug and my dresses get in touch!
