Memory Zoo Studios came into being when I realised I couldn’t bear to part with my daughter’s clothing but didn’t want them wasting away in the attic.
Do you feel the same? Have your children grown up, grown older or just stopped being babies anymore? Do you regularly unfold those teeny, tiny gorgeous clothes that they wore and wonder where the time went? Or have you recently lost someone?
“Thank you so much for our bear. She’s beautiful, very happy bunny xx” – Clare
You may find the you’ve been looking for someone to make your keepsake for you but you’re not sure which company to choose, what to have made or even if you want to do it at all! I completely understand that it’s a huge deal to have those perfect clothes cut up.
At Memory Zoo Studios I take your old worn out clothing and give them a new lease of life by turning them into a bespoke, handmade heirloom. My animals are crafted to the highest level with care and attention to the smallest detail. They are designed to last beyond a lifetime and, with care, to be passed down through the generations. I have made hundreds of animals over the last few years and have hundreds of happy customers.
“I am absolutely thrilled to bits with my Memory Zoo animals, the standard is incredible and is such a wonderful keepsake for both my children. I cannot recommend highly enough xx” – Tracey
If you’re not sure which animal you’d like then take a look through my gallery which shows just a fraction of the hundreds of heirlooms I have created over the last few years. My FAQs, pricing page and blog should answer any questions about the process that you may have but by all means email me if you have any further questions. My Facebook page is also an excellent way to keep up to date with my most recent makes.
A huge amount of people look at all the things I make and say, ‘I wish I could do that!’
So as of 2017 I have been running sewing workshops for the absolute and terrified beginner to the more advanced sewer wishing to further their skills. I feel absolutely certain that anyone can learn to sew, even if they have never done it before.
My workshops are created with accessibility and success in mind. They are fun, informal and creative spaces for the like minded to get together and make something wonderful.
