“I find it truly relaxing and am not happier than when i’m creating. The sourcing and combining of materials is definitely my favourite part…”- Amie
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
I am a very small company run from home sewing and creating fun and functional goodies for children with a few bits thrown in for the grownups. Amie Boswell products cover a huge range of items form quirky embellished tie T’s to leather purses……
How would you describe your style?
My style is a mix of lots of colour, pattern and texture. I take inspiration form lovely fabrics and vintage bits that I source. The fun bit is putting everything together and finding the best combinations to create a striking and individual look.
How long have you been making your craft items?
I have been working on my products for about 10 years on and off but have had two little ones in that period too so off more than on recently…. Having children hasn’t stopped my flow of ides though, in fact quite the opposite. You can get away with much bolder designs for the kids and they always look so cute!
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
My best seller over the last couple of years is no doubt my tie T- shirt. Nearly every one is different and they are so easy to wear plus they look adorable.
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
Having a bit of time to myself. I find it truly relaxing and am not happier than when i’m creating. The sourcing and combining of materials is definitely my favourite part.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
For the last few years I have been lucky enough to take part in ‘The Cake House’ open house in Brighton, run by Clair Letton. Now that I have a little more time to myself I will be looking for future stalls and markets though. Can’t wait….
What items and festive gifts will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?
I will have; tie T’s, Festive p.j’s, leather purses, canvas drawstring bags, baby bibs, bunting and a few other little accessories and gifts.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
At the moment I am working on relaunching my website , Amieboswell.com, which should be ready for November. In the new year I will be looking for outlets and future events to take part in so if anyone has any ideas please let me know.
Any other comments you wish to make:
When you buy an Amie Boswell product you can be safely assured that you have a unique item. As every individual item is made by myself in small quantities it is very unlikely that you will ever see anything exactly the same anywhere else…….
