What Nanna Made
Rugeley, United Kingdom
Hello everyone, Welcome to my new shop! This is the place where I realise a dream I had as a young student at art college many years ago. I also had a dream to be a teacher of young children and this I achieved this after getting married and having a family. My three wonderful children are all grown up now and have started families of their own making me a Nanna (hence the shop name , 'What Nanna Made'). Moving forward towards my dream (I now work part time as a teacher), I have spent the past year, of 2016, rediscovering my skills as a designer and crafter, and exploring opportunities. The first step was the purchase of a new sewing machine. With this, I could revisit rusty sewing skills, including patchwork and embroidery techniques lost in the depths of time. This led to the design of a baby quilt for my new grandson, Teddy. A few quilts later and the appetite for even more creativity in my life was well and truly wetted. A desire to use my own fabric designs, in my quilts, led me to 'Woven Monkey'. How amazing to find a website for a business based in the U.K. that can make dreams come true! I hope you like my designs and welcome your feedback, in addition to requests for adaptions or bespoke prints. Never let go of your dreams however long they take to achieve! Happy shopping!
