Meet the maker Janet Blackbourn

Hello, I'm Jan,

Welcome, & thank you for looking at my shop.

I live in beautiful rural Norfolk in eastern England surrounded by fields & forest. I enjoy looking after my very large garden & keep lots of chickens & geese.

Since I was a little girl I have always loved doing all kinds of needlecraft, including dressmaking,cross stitch, tapestry, & my real passion - patchwork & quilting. I love to hand quilt my patchwork as it is so relaxing to do.

I started to make dolls clothes when I was asked if I could make some for a Cabbage Patch Kid when they were all the rage many years ago. Since then I have built up an extensive collection of clothes patterns for most brands of dolls.

I also enjoy making rag dolls & clothes for babies & young children when I have time.

I am lucky enough to have a work room which I love to be in. More often than not, it is quite chaotic, but to me it is still a place to be creative, relaxed & at peace with the world

I try to price my items fairly.
I use good quality materials & of course, they take me time to make.
I hope you will agree that the end result is stronger & better made than the dolls clothes generally available in the High Street.

If you have any queries please contact me - no obligation
