Exciting times!

by Stripey Squirrel | December 15, 2014

Wow! I can't believe how quickly things are getting off the ground for me with Stripey Squirrel. I have been totally overwhelmed with people's support and encouragement. It's been amazing. After the organiser of the Herne Hill Christmas Market spotted my site on a friend's Facebook page, she contacted me to see if I wanted a stall on Saturday just gone so I jumped at the chance, not sure I was any where near ready to actually get my stuff out there and off line. I needn't have worried. The day was a huge success and as well as selling lots of stuff I also met some really enthusiastic and interesting people who gave me an insight into stall-holding and market selling. 

Holding the stall was a big turning point for me and I really want to make sure I can get my hand in at more markets in the new year so watch this space! However, after the huge success of Saturday's one, I am going to have to seriously pick up my sewing pace to keep up with demand!

Thanks again to everyone for the kind words, encouraging feedback and enthusiasm for the whys and wherefores of what Stripey Squirrel is all about.

For now though, its back to the sewing machine....



Week Two.

by Stripey Squirrel | December 01, 2014

After an absolutely overwhelming response from so many people when I sent out word about Stripey Squirrel last week, I have spent the weekend very excited about getting going on more designs and I will have more little trousers to put on the site tomorrow. 

Most of exciting of all I made my first sale on Friday evening so I am very chuffed indeed! Thank you!


People have been asking if they can put in requests for specific sizes or clothes - most definitely! Just send me a message via the website and let me know what it is you are looking for and I'll see what I can put together!

Stripey Squirrel goes live!
