Our Featured Shop for September is Alessandra Handmade Creations
I asked Alessandra some questions to find out a little more about her fabulous designs and business.
How long have you been crafting for?
As a child I used to knit with my mother, aunties & grannies. I remember sitting on my Grandmother's lap and sewing with this very machine! Just seeing the machine brings back such wonderful memories!
You obviously like crafting with material - why do you like this?
I love the colours, textures, playability & the infinite creativity options that they offer. The sky really is the limit as to what they can be used for!
Your range is wonderfully diverse. What are you able to create for people?
I can create so many different items! Quilts, cushions, throws, table covers & runners, place mats, bibs, T shirts, scarves etc etc! If you have a look at my website it will show you examples of work that is available for sale and also previously sold designs. I am always open to ideas and take commissions!
Where can your amazing work be purchased?
Available products can be found on my website and I also sell from a Showroom in Putney, West London, at Craft Markets and also at Private Sale events.
What do you think makes your products so special and you so successful?
My items are all either limited edition or truly unique. They all have something slightly different, maybe a button or a ribbon but people appreciate this in an age of mass-produced. Most items can be personalised making this a very special gift! People just need to contact me with their requirements.
What drives you forward?
I am passionate about what I do. I like to make people feel pampered and special when they shop with me. I pay great attention to detail from receiving the order to dispatching it. All my items are wrapped beautifully, that is part of the process of making the experience special!
Is there anywhere that people can find you this year to see your amazing designs in person?
I am exhibiting this Autumn in a few different places and would be delighted if people visited me! A full list of upcoming events can be found on my website.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a better insight into Alessandra Handmade Creations.
