Gingers



I started making these as a way to cope with COVID19 lockdown: I hung a new one in the front window each day to thank Key Workers and Local Heroes.  Families out for daily walks started to look forward to seeing the new one each day, and people would suggest new ones for me to do.

The original idea came from a friend Sue who trades as Memories in Thread.  Some of the designs are completely hers, most are adapted versions of hers and some are just mine.  The originals were sold locally on FB to raise money for the Wraysbury and Horton Voluntary Care charity who have supported a great many people during the COVID situation.

They raised £1506!!!!
 
I wanted a page where all the Gingers could be viewed, and, as people have asked for specific ones that they want to buy for themselves, also where orders could be made.  The auctioned Gingers will not be duplicated as they are, but can be used for inspiration.

They are generally £5* each as seen here, but if you want a name or a year added or other changes to the design they will be £1 or £2 more, and new designs will be between £7 and £10* (* depending on complexity and how quickly you need it.)
