Meet Natalie, of Engee Star, who will be selling at our Racecourse fair. Find out all about her and her creations…
Please introduce yourself and your brand…..
Hello, my name is Natalie and I am the designer/ creator of Engee Star.
Engee has been created from my initials (from before I got married). Finding a unique name that described my work was no easy task, so I decided to use Engee Star as it was distinctive and unusual. I love to be creative and make things. My hands start itching if I haven’t made anything for a while.
Tell us a bit about your creations and how you make them….
I make hand printed and hand drawn cards and gift tags, including a collection of hand made textile items, which range from handmade bags, zip purses, peg bags, lavender bags and soft toys.
How long have you been making your creations?
I have been making my printed items since leaving university in 2010, with a degree in Printmaking, but took a break when I had my daughter. I have got back into the swing of things this year.
Do you have a best seller or most popular item?
My cherry blossom zip purses have been the most popular!
What do you enjoy most about your craft/ work?
I want my items to be useful, and like to make things that are creative and attractive. After I choose my imagery and materials, the fun part is putting it all together to create an item that people will enjoy visually as well.
Will you be selling some festive themed creations at The Fairy Tale Fair?
Yes, I will be bringing along my christmas gift tags and hand drawn christmas cards.
What are your plans or ambitions for the future, or have you already achieved them?
I love to make and be creative, and my aim is to continue this. I hope that people will also enjoy my creations as much as I love making them.
Describe what Christmas means to you in 5 words or less!:
Magic, warmth, love, friends, family,
