MORE ABOUT ME...
In 2013, after 12 years living and working in London, my husband, 3 children & I, finally made the break and headed to leafy Buckinghamshire. It was then that I was able to start fulfilling my long-standing dream of establishing Poppies & Polka Dots. As a child I was forever making things and my first ever prize at school was for knitting! This passion grew over the years and after the birth of my first child, I went on to obtain a professional qualification in the craft of bespoke hand stitched curtains, blinds and other soft furnishings. My love of fabrics, beautiful trimmings and all things homemade continues to grow, even more so now, as it is fueled by a passion to bring the very best to Poppies & Polka Dots.
Wondering where the name came from? Well that’s courtesy of our eldest daughter Poppy, who seems to have inherited the ‘making’ bug and has provided lots of the inspiration. The Polka Dot? Well, who can resist that, a timeless classic!
Happy shopping & many thanks,
This lovely website couldn't have come together without the help, patience and hard work of three fantastic companies:
