I wanted to give my niece and daughter a special quilt which they could learn to crawl on and would keep for years but I'm useless at sewing so I couldn't do it myself. Val asked me to suggest themes which would mean something to the children. I chose the seaside for my niece (because she lives on the coast) and 'a walk in the park' for my daughter. Val was extremely sensitive to the colours and styles I wanted and sent lots of pictures of fabrics and colour combinations to choose from. She even looked for new fabrics to enhance the effect.
Val created stunning, dynamic quilts which have a wide range of patterns and images to enjoy and talk about. They are genuine works of a art with a bright, fresh feel, which the children can interact with and play on for years. She also designed and made an embroidery cushion for my cousin's wedding which marked their occasion in a non-sentimental way which felt right for them and a small personalised cushion for a friend's daughter which I was proud to give.
She was professional to work with, produced flawless work and encouraged me to feedback openly so the process felt creative and exciting. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to give a special, individual present which is good value, unique to them and genuinely comes from the heart.
