Amsterdam-mamas

Hello, sorry for the lack of posts recently – I’ve been busy with orders, new designs and planning a new product! Very exciting, more on that soon I hope.

I wanted to share this interview that has just gone live that I did a while ago for Amsterdam Mamas, a fantastic website here in NL. You can see the full interview here.

I also have a lovely new customer review to show off…

Shipped super fast. I was nervous about figuring out how to put it together but the directions were well written, only took me a few minutes to set up. This teepee is so cute and very well made. Worth the price and my son loves it! Thanks!!

Many thanks Stephanie from Texas, USA for taking the time to review Moozle via Etsy, see more reviews here.

I managed to finish and photograph a new design on Tuesday this week (no mean feat), I listed it on my Etsy shop later that day and hey presto it was sold after a couple of hours, which is fantastic BUT, ment that not many of you lovely folk actually got to clap eyes on the thing… so here it is, you lucky, lucky people (yes, I have a dry sense of humor, not always detected in text).

How do I keep my kids busy whilst getting on with a few jobs after school hours? well I have a few tricks, one of which is chalk board pens (white wash pens), who needs a chalk board – not us! Looks so pretty when the sun shines through making patterns on the curtains and floor.

TALK:craft interview

Hi, I was invited by Fish Indie to be interviewed for their TALK:craft feature, a behind the brand Q&A series they run with Etsy sellers, if you’d like to read about how I started the MoozleΒ  brand, my fashion background and a peak behind the scenes, you can read the whole piece here, but if not…here’s a few tasty bits…:)

“I studied for my fashion design degree in London and after that worked in-house with some great designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Tanya Sarne at Ghost (back in the early 90’s when Ossie Clark would pop into the design studio with paint brushes holding up his top-knot).”

“I used to have a huge workspace, with 8 industrial sewing machines, a 15 foot pattern cutting table, 3 full time machinists, an office, a kitchenette and cloakroom…. Now I have a desk in the dining room!”

“That’s the power of the internet, it has allowed people like myself to create our own way of earning a living. Just like in years gone by when women used to take in sewing jobs, repair work or laundry to pay the bills, Those women were entrepreneurs, but were just treated like maids really.
Now we are sewing things for people thousands of miles away instead of a few streets away. A cottage industry for the global village.”

Thank you FISH Indie! x
