Thankyou everyone for your patience. We are now in our new house, and last week the flooring was laid in my brand new studio. I still don't have adequate storage space for ready made stock however, so there's still work to be done.
At this stage, I still plan to re-open for orders in mid-April, however I am nervous how I will cope.
Life with a (now crawling) 8 month old, as well as school and kindy runs and caring for Master 5 and Master 3 doesn't leave much time to work on my millinery, but I have been developing some new designs which I can't wait to release after Easter.
In 2017 I also plan to reintroduce the 'Made to Match' design range, recommence a small number of bespoke design bookings, and I'm making some headway updating the website. As usual the bookwork has been completely neglected!
Thankyou to my customers for continuing to support me throughout the chaotic time I had in 2016. 2017 looks to be even busier and crazier, so bear with me as I struggle to carve out just a little time to run Sweetpea Finery which is so important and precious to me.
Please feel free to contact me during my 'off season' via email, but be patient it expectation of responses, as my focus is away from my millinery business over the next few months.
Remember to collect memories, not things!
