How it all began....
The Banner Boutique began in early 2011 following the birth of my first child in 2010. I wanted to make something for her that was a little bit different to what was already available. I first started sewing at the age of 12 and enjoyed the counted cross stitch kits so something sewn or stitched seemed to be appropriate. After making a banner in the name of Aimee I had a lot of compliments from friends and family, which quickly turned into requests for me to make more. I hunted around and couldnt find anything else like them so The Banner Boutique was born just 6 months after my first banner.
Moved into 'sew your own' kits in 2013 and a lot of items are available in this format. Many of the kits are also sold in a PDF format downloadable through the Etsy store.
Winner of the Jacqueline Gold WOW award on Twitter in Summer 2016. Featured in Love Sewing magazine in 2017. Also proud to say I set up and run Sparkle Showcases over on Facebook.
Always keen to try new ideas and develop new ranges so any ideas please get in touch! I love a challenge!

To keep sewing and be happy. I'm very lucky to have a job that I absolutely love and it fits in with family life.
Lots of love
