Sneaky Peaky - New for 2011!

Friday, December 31, 2010
Hi everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thought I'd give you a little preview of our new Dorset noteboards! They'll be made to order at £25 and available online from next week!

Each board comes with a choice of two name places of your choice in Dorset, and any additional name places are an extra £1 each. Finished with a Handmade Dorset Button it's the perfect gift for someone special or yourself!

Best wishes for 2011!

Our First Jessalli Casualty!

Sunday, December 19, 2010
Well we're plowing through the orders here at Jessalli in readiness for Christmas! Mother though, wanted to get them done a bit quicker than usual! In her eagerness to get things done she decided to not only sew up a cushion but sew through her finger too!
This resulted in a trip to casualty where the x-ray showed half the needle still inside her finger! And a follow up appointment with the plastic surgeon to try and put her finger back together!

Don't worry though! She's back to helping me sew and we're still having fun making all your pressies!

I'd just like to say another thank you to those of you who have popped round for your xmas shopping! Not just because you're snowed in but because you love handmade! (Right?)

A huge Merry Christmas to you all!

Love Sophia x

The Last of the Gingerbread Army!

Saturday, December 11, 2010
Thank you to everyone who came to the Marnhull late night shopping last night (Friday 10th Dec)! We had such fun and thanks to everyone that supported the village by buying your mulled wine and hog roast!

Plus a huge thank you to everyone who bought a little piece of Jessalli! We only had one member of our Gingerbread Army left on the night so we must have done something right! But don't worry I'm still making more!

We had a fantastic night and we hope, if you came, you did too! And that you got to see Father Christmas! Merry Christmas!

Small Raggy Hearts!

Monday, September 6, 2010
A small gift for someone is hard to find sometimes, but here at Jessalli we have the perfect thing-Stuffed fabric hearts. Not only do we have the normal smooth edge hearts but also a 'raggy edge heart' that's quirky and different. Each heart has a hand embroidered message fixed onto each front, with a natural string tie and patch work fabrics front and back.

Each heart is £3 each and being handmade, no two are the same. Choose from messages: 'Special Someone' 'Special Mum' and 'With Love'.

A perfect little gift for a little price.

New Noteboards!

Monday, June 28, 2010
Well those who know us will have seen our fabulous 'Noteboards' and many of you have already got one!

We can create any noteboard you like. Portrait, landscape, patterned, plain. You decide! We make to order or you can choose from the varieties we take to our fairs! No need for pins either! Simply slip all your letters and business cards under the ribbon!

This one is a kitchen one we have made from Cath Kidston fabric with fun colourful buttons, perfect for a bright country kitchen! If you have particular colours in your kitchen, lounge, or bedroom-tell us and we'll make it in those colours! You can even give us a particular material used in your living spaces and we'll make it up for you!

If you like simple patterns like gingham, then this one is for you. We made this for a little girl's bedroom! Gingham is perfect for a simple splash of pattern, or you can have any plain colours too!

If you dislike buttons-opt for bows! They make these noteboards extra pretty! Choose coloured ribbons, either matching or a variety!

All boards are £15 excluding postage and packaging. There will be discounts for boards made from already purchased materials and extras.
