Well today I would like to invite you to take a look at a business called Linen and Fred.
A talented lady by the name of Emma makes hand embroidered brooches and other lovely goodies. She works from home and creates some wonderful scrummy goodies to buy for presents or just for yourself.. I warn you, you will not be able to resist!
Emma is married and has a 3 and a half year old daughter. Emma has always, she says, dabbled in crafts but only recently realised that sewing is her strong point! Emma likes to crochet as well but prefers to go off on her own path than rely on patterns.
Emma is trying to build up Linen and Fred as a strong business and was in contract buying electronics components before having time off to be with her daughter and start Linen and Fred. She told me she is still finding her own style..... I think she has, I bet you will agree.
Emma also told me she works from a large desk in the corner of one of her bedrooms with a mass of vintage goodies around her which grow every day when the postman arrives, due to her ebay/vintage item addiction... I can bet dear readers we are bidding against each other some days!!
She has a shop on Etsy.... take a look. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LinenAndFred
Also if you have a facebook account then simply look up Linen and Fred and voila !!
Emma is based in Bedfordshire in England and you can buy her wonderful hand made and hand embroidered designs on line from both the above.
