I’m addicted to the quiet satisfaction of working with my hands, learning new creative skills and making things my kids love and I want to pass it on to you.
When you open a Gidsy and Jo sewing kit, you’ll find all your pattern pieces pre printed in beautiful, strong colour, a needle, embroidery threads in gorgeous colours and three pages of full colour instructions to make sure you get things right every step of the way. I’ve been bamboozled in the past by projects with tricky terms, awkward language and patterns to photocopy, so you won’t find any of that here – just the perfect base for you to make your own unique toy.
SAY YES TO UNIQUE
Gidsy and Jo is inspired by a wonderful world of imagination and creativity. Round here we like to play our own quirky way, no matter what the rest of the pack is up to. That’s why I want to bring you unique, colourful designs and easy to follow instructions to create something that will open up a world of imagination for your little ones, made with love by you and not to be found anywhere else.
SUPPORT INDEPENDENT BUSINESS
Everything I design is done from my home studio in the rural Midlands and printed by our pal Evan as part of his own independent business. When you buy from Gidsy and Jo you’re supporting our family, Evan’s family and a family worldwide as we give away 20% of all our profits to help mums start small businesses and children into adopted families both here and abroad.
DISCOVER AND SHARE THE JOY OF MAKING
Learning how to sew is fun…but learning enough skills to design and make whatever you like is even better. We believe in the good, honest, old fashioned way of hand making, because few things in life are more satisfying than completing a project you made yourself, then seeing the delight as you pass it on to someone else to love and own. That’s what our kits are all about. It’s more than sewing – it’s making treasure and memories for years to come.
I’ve just launched the brand new Make Your Own Mermaid Kit and Make Your Own Unicorn Kit with Not on the High Street. I’d love for you to be able to find the perfect gift for the creative in your life, or discover the joy of making for yourself, whether for the first or 100th time.
You can shop the kits here, and don’t forget I’d love so much to see what you make – just use the #gidsyandjogang on Instagram and I’ll make you famous in our feed too!
