Company Overview
I have been a crafter off and on for the last 30 years, originally trading as Paris Crafts and more recently as Rag Rings and Other Things. I have always enjoyed working with colour, creating and making all manner of different things from home furnishings to bridal bouquets made from dried flowers. After a break for a few years I have moved away from dried flowers towards fabrics and different bits and pieces I have collected from around the world, particularly from beachcombing and my garden in France. I make a variety of different crafts and follow what inspires me on any given day.
Products & Services
I make a good variety of crafts which I show at craft fairs and Christmas markets. It's difficult for me to list what I make as I tend to 'go where the fancy takes me' and I find that what I sell can be quite transient. On my stall you would find knitwear such as scarves and fingerless mittens, Jams and biscuits, wall hangings, mobiles made from driftwood, cinnamon bark, dried oranges and chillies, beads and fabric, rags rings and hearts, driftwood wall hangings and ornaments, Christmas decorations and hangings and bits of jewellry. Most items are unique which means it is unlikely that any two would be exactly the same as each other.
Company Profile
I spent most of my working life as a teacher, working with all age groups and children with moderate learning difficulties. The last ten years I spent as an Advisory Teacher in Personal, Social and Health Education. Amidst this full time job while my children were small I spent time running Paris Crafts. As I have more free time nowadays I decided to rekindle my creative side and have developed new ideas which has resulted in a 'crafty' change of direction.
