About HANDforthMADE

HANDforthMADE

Sewing beautiful things that are made to treasure and keep

Hi I'm Paula Handforth - from HANDforthMADE

I sew ... its what I love to do ... cards, gifts, items for the home. I've always loved the Shaker style of making - simple, uncluttered and reusable and along with pretty floral cottons, linen and Harris Tweed, I will often include pre-loved materials and buttons in my work, that not only add a little bit of history, but are reusing and re-purposing materials, as those gone before me would always have done.

I work from home - using a technique called 'freehand embroidery' or 'freehand motion' which is in essence, drawing with my sewing machine and if I'm gone from my chair in my workroom, you will find me pottering in my garden, among my flowers, herbs and veggies. I love bringing what I see in my garden back into the workroom, by sewing the flowers and herbs I find there and if you buy from me, your packaged item usually has a sprig of something found in the garden attached to the string and tissue paper.

Thank you for visiting my shop ... I hope you like what you find... and some little piece will take your fancy and become yours to keep ... xx
