The financial year, 2015-2016, saw £100 donated to charity from sales at Big Bird Little Bird. A donation of £50 was given to Beating Bowel Cancer, and £50 to my local hospice, Ellenor. Thank you to those that made purchases!
I am now part of the Shopping with Soul directory, run by the lovely people at Craft Fox Market! Crafty Fox Markets are curated, selling the best of what is on offer in the modern craft market. You can read more here.
I am featured in the April 2017 issue of Sewing World Magazine! You can get your copy at WHSmiths and other reputable newsagents.
I shall be exhibiting at the Art and Ceramics event being held on Sunday 6th November 2016 at The Meadow Rooms, Cobham, Kent DA12 3BZ. The event is free and runs from 10am-4pm with art available to buy for a truly unique Christmas gift.
I have recently come across the "Just a Card" campaign, set up by artist Sarah Hamilton and supported by Mollie Makes, and The Design Trust. This is an initiative to support independent designer/maker/artists and independent shops and galleries. Buying just a card (hence the name!) in these shops can make a difference, and show you support for the independents out there! To read more visit "Just a Card".
I am now selling my Liberty of London fabric lavender birds at "Made in Kent", a new shop just opened down Gravesend's High Street in the Heritage Quarter. It is run by NW Kent MiND, the mental health charity, and all profits go to them. The shop stocks items made in Kent, from cards to art, candles to cushions, chocolate to jam! It is worth a visit to support such local talent.
