How to make this website work…

I’d imagined beautiful photographs and curated collections of my products, seasonal selections, news and information, sharing insights in to me and my business. It would be sleek and simple, easy to navigate around, and above all a fun place to hang out.

TWOO Suppliers

As you know, I love custom orders – it’s a chance for me to try new designs, new fabrics, and just let my creative side run a bit freer. Although I have a core range of products I’m happy to make tweaks and additions to be able to make something truly special and unique for…

My favourite time of day

You may not know, but I absolutely love coffee. Two cups, every morning and never after 12noon (or I’ll be awake all night!?) I have a bit of a morning routine, and coffee is the first thing that I think about in the morning and the last thing at night. I think that I might…

Ten things that you maybe don’t know about me…

The very first piece of music that I bought was the 12″ single of Stephen Tin Tin Duffy’s Kiss Me. I still have it after all these years.Before I became the Chief of The Wise Old Owl I worked in an admin managerial role in higher education. It was great fun and a very rewarding…

Do you ever have days where you start out happily bobbing along, thinking that you have a plan for the day and that you know what needs to be done, and then, all of a sudden, out of the blue, something quite unexpected happens and sets you off on a different track? But in a…

My Bear Paw

I’m often asked where I get my supplies of fabrics from. My stash of fabrics and haberdashery materials. As my business really took off during Lockdown I was pushed in to buying fabrics and haberdashery from on-line stores. I found a couple of really good on-line stores that I now buy from regularly.

Support The Makers Market – Sunday 6th March

Sunday morning came and the sun was shining. Yay! Always great to have good weather on market day. It encourages people out and about. I arrived at the venue and took the first of my things inside. At first, I couldn’t see where my table was. There were lots of people milling about, setting up,…
