Trade Shows, Awards and Best of British...oh my!

Hi everyone - it's been too long, but we're back with some super news, and a whole host of happenings to share!

Where to start??

Well, first of all -you all knew we were preparing for our first Trade Show at Pulse London... well, it went really brilliantly, we had such a good time and were so pleased with our stand! To top everything off, and to our extreme shock, we won an award!

'Best New Launchpad Exhibitors at Pulse 2011' to be exact, and judged by the lovely Michelle Alger (of Britains Next Big Thing, fame), Buying Manager for Home at Liberty... as you can see by the huge smiles on our faces, we were not expecting it at all! Thankfully, I had been be-decked with paper eye-lashes from Paperself for the occassion...not that I knew there was GOING to be an occasion... handy, that! ;)

Ahead of going to Pulse, we had received some wonderful news after attending Liberty's Best of British Open Call back in April...when we had hotfooted it down to London for a few days to pitch our products to the buying team at the world famous store (and my personal Mecca!) - and a whole 3 minutes later - we just had to wait and see...

Delightfully, we were successful, and received an order for Cushions. It is certainly a career highlight for us, especially for me, as it has always been a dream of mine to have my designs sold in Liberty - so we are over to moon to be adding them as an official stockist. You can see some images of the Liberty Open Call on their facebook page... you might even spot me, looking utterly hideous in a photo, with our cushions in front, looking MUCH lovelier, thankfully... ;)

SO - we came home from Pulse to start work on our Liberty order, which was no small undertaking, but thankfully, after sewing our socks off (Ryan even roped me in!) they were all ready to head off in to the wide world at the end of last week...

That, really, is what we have been up to... so you'll hopefully forgive our silence! We have lots more to share shortly, including some new stockists added to our list so we will be profiling them... and other bits and bobs, too.

We will be back with those very soon. Happy Monday all, we've missed this space!
