Best of British: Vanessa Arbuthnott

Tomorrow I will be unveiling the April magazine as well as beginning our Easter giveaway.  But before then, there’s just one more contributor to the March issue I’d like to mention, and that’s Vanessa Arbuthnott.  The last in our “Best of British” series, Vanessa started her business on her kitchen table 14 years ago. For the first few months she worked after her four children were tucked up and before they came down in the morning, cutting all the samples with her pinking sheers and rolling out the first orders on a table tennis table!

I actually want to go and live in one of Vanessa’s photosets I love them so much.  I’m not sure that the Newfies would be allowed though – think of all the hair and mud they would bring with them ….


Even the ironing looks fun!


You can see more of Vanessa’s wonderful photosets here and read more about her business over on her website.
