… and so it begins…
The dream of two Minchinhamptonites is finally starting to take flight.
Shani is one half of the “Made in Minch” dream team, with a love of all things creative and from a strong design background.
You are likely to find her doing a million different crafty things at once, humming a little tune and sketching. A steaming cup of elderflower tea is always within reach.
Meanwhile, the other half … Jen, will be drooling over anything with spots and dots, talking faster than an express train and keeping a journal or sketchbook going. Earl Grey is her preferred tipple, along with the odd biscuit … or slice of cake … or chocolate buttons …
We both enjoy our food (though Jen still can’t cope with the spicier stuff – Shani’s gonna keep up the training on that one!) and Shani LOVES to cook, experimenting with ingredients all the time. Good job with family and friends who are dairy and wheat allergic or vegetarian. Still, it’s a good challenge.
So – Made in Minch. What are we about? We are starting out in our own little crafty way, designing and making jewellery and fabric items, including children’s clothes. We make some to sell through local outlets, craft stalls and fairs, but we also make items to order that can be customised for the individual taste.
Our latest venture is our 4-in-One dress. A pretty little wrap dress that has four sides, so it can be changed to different dress four ways! We have also designed reversible dungarees and reversible baby booties! Very useful with little ones when spillage occurs whilst you’re out, or you’re packing to go away for the weekend. Isn’t our little model cute? So we sign off from our first ever post, we’re excited to see where this will go. We hope that other local crafters will get in touch and share inspiration to create a crafty community on line.
Lots of love,
S and J “Made in Minch”
