Request something special to be handmade by Roses Workshop
I love Custom Orders!
Whether it is knitting gloves a bit smaller, or a hat a bit bigger, making a tea cosy to fit an unusual shaped teapot, or a big pile of cushions in a tweed I've never used before, I am quite happy.
However, by their very nature these items take more time than a regular size or shape version. I may need to buy in materials that I don't hold in stock. Also I may need to finish what I am working on before I can make a start on the custom item.
Like the proverbial buses, I may have no custom order enquiries for weeks, then suddenly several come along at once. It's not that your item will take three weeks to make - it may take just one day, but in three weeks time when I have a slot available. If you have a special deadline like a wedding or birthday date, please contact me well in advance so I can fit you in.
Christmas starts in October!
It starts as a trickle when the kids go back to school. By mid-October I am running out available slots. In November I am overwhelmed by custom orders, all wanted as Christmas presents, and have to start turning people away. I hate to do this. I love that you all like my work so much that you want a special version for a special person. But I don't have any magical elves to help me, and I really do have to sleep occasionally!
Now taking orders for 2021
Yes that's right - I am already fully booked for custom orders for the rest of the year. I have taken on so many that I cannot even replenish stock of normal items, so many of those are sold out too. So if you are planning to replace those lampshades in the New Year, please start thinking about sizes, shapes and colours. Then get in touch: Contact Form
Thank you all, and Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas
