High Peak Designs - Hand Made Country Crafts

High Peak Designs - Honey HeartHi! I am Margaret, the creator of HighPeakDesign. I recently re-found my love of sewing after a long break (3 children and working full time!). My grandchildren were the catalyst, I started making christmas stockings for them last year, after which I had people asking me to make their children stockings, followed by decorations and bunting.

After Christmas I decided to carry on with the venture and have been commissioned to make many cushions, bunting and padded hearts. I try to make every single item a bit unique and different from the last. Even when asked for a similar design I will try to make it different, i.e. colours or details on the buttons, trims etc. That way each piece is special. I have also recently finished a commission to make some bridal bunting and handmade garters...!

I'm offering a personalised cushion, handmade in 100% linen and with a name or initials in fabric. You can choose from my list of fabrics and the colour of the linen from either off-white or beige. The cushion cover will come with a feather pad unless you prefer polyester wadding. These are normally priced starting from £15!

I do hope you enjoy looking at my website www.highpeakdesign.org.uk and look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Margaret

Your cushions are gorgeous. I love the mix of natural colours (the material looks so tactile) with pretty colours and the nautical themed ones are really cute!

Well done with your new venture!
