The story so far .....

I've been sewing professionally now for over 28 years. Phew! I feel old just typing that! My first trade experience was in a four-year apprenticeship with a fabulous interior designer who also designed & made dresses for the Royal Ballet. Needless to say I gained a wide range of skills that I still use today and am tremendously thankful for the experience it gave me.

I always concentrate on quality, not quantity with a meticulous eye for detail. I have, over the years, spent time making various items from clothes & bedding in factory environments to running my own business creating bespoke wedding dresses and ball gowns. 

When my eldest daughter was born in 2006, I ventured into children's goods making cosytoes and pram accessories. They were extremely popular and I always had a long list of orders to work on - however, as my daughter grew and another little girl came into the Taylor household in 2010, babywearing became more my thing. I started making babywearing bags & accessories and converting wraps into ring slings etc. This has proved even more popular and has kept me out of mischief for over 7 years now. 

My girls are growing up fast and I'm no longer carrying them, however I still love wraps / babywearing and seeing all the new designs coming into the market is just lovely. We have, over recent years, seen some inspiring new wrap brands too. 

 I'm often asked my many non babywearers to create a special keepsake piece, with sentimental value and I honestly love these jobs too, this week I made 3 beautiful keepsake bears from some sentimental clothes, and to see the joy they brought to the owner was just beautiful, please don't be afraid to ask for things not shown on the website as the possibilities are endless and that's really rather exciting.

I love the fact that my creations make people happy, I get such a thrill from creating something unique that can be treasured forever! So let your imagination run wild and challenge me to make them a reality. I love to experiment with ideas, making something special and unique! 

Now that both my girls are at school I feel I'm in a position to develop a few ideas that I've had in mind now for some time, so with over 300 babywearing bags firmly under my belt and countless wrap conversions achieved, I'm ready to add new items to my range too , so in 2017 a collection of leather bags was added to my range. what will 2018 hold for Taylors? lets just see! but I have so many ideas that 'd love to share so I hope you'll join me!
