It has been another very busy year. We moved Studios in late Spring to Belsay to accomodate our growing business. We have been concentrating over the Summer months on our expanding international sales and developing new products in our velvet range. We continue to be featured in National and International publications, television and blogs and as always, a big thank to those who have featured us.
We are extremely thrilled that our Mr & Mrs range has become the must have wedding gift.
We have returned and only just recovered from what can only be described as a Baptism of Fire – Country Living Christmas Fair. I think we chose the most logistically difficult Fair in the Universe for our first. But I have to say that I loved nearly every minute of it. It was a great success and we met some amazing people. It had to be the most exhausting 5 days ever, but can’t wait for the next!!!!
Country Living Christmas Fair
We are very excited to be exhibiting for the first time at the Country Living Christmas Fair. We will be launching some new designs at the fair. One of which is our Pink Flower Silhouette Cushion.
We are now on the count down, getting stock made, designing the layout of the stand, booking vans and so the list goes on. The biggest challenge is sorting out the homefront, thank heavens for wonderful Grandparents!
So please come and visit us in the New Exhibitors Auditorium of the County Living Christmas Fair from the 9th - 13th November at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
A big thank you for all the super press coverage, blog mentions and links that we have had over the summer. Here are some we managed to catch, The Times Style Magazine and Period Ideas. Our cushions have also been used in television programs, sadly we can't divulge any information until they have aired.
Very glad to at last see the sunshine and have said farewell to the extremely cold Winter. We have had great press coverage and blog links already this year such as The Scotsman and Ideal Homes, which featured our Union Jack Chair. Also thrilled to have had a Best of British link on Emma Forbes' style website.
The beginning of 2010 has been very busy with many new additions to our velvet range, such as our gorgeous Canadian Maple and our very smart French Tricolor. We are extremely excited to unveil our very own printed collection of Linen and Silk Union Jack Cushions. We have a very smart 100% Linen range and a luxuriously soft Silk Twill range which will be added during the first week of May.
Firstly, we would like to say a huge thank you to all our customers for their kind emails. We have had a very hectic, but amazing first year with our website. It has been non stop since our launch last November.
We have uploaded many new designs through the year and are extremely thrilled with the success of our new Hugs and Kisses cushions - location pictures of which were by Katy Melling Photography. As you will also see, we have our new Union Jack Oil Paintings in all our colours, which we are thrilled with.
We have had wonderful press coverage and blog links from all over the world. We don't manage to catch all of the clippings but here are two from October - The Guardian Weekend and 25 Beautiful Homes.
We are thrilled with our continued success and are very excited that Jane's designs are being selected to appear in the national press.
