Our Story

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.  

The Banner Boutique has primarily sold through Facebook since 2011 and more recently on sites such as Etsy,

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!

About me....

I am a work at home mummy to two little girls (Aimee and Sophie).  We live in Bury, Lancashire with my husband.  

The future...

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.

I can often be found hanging out on Instagram (more behind the scenes/work in progress pics!) and on my Facebook page. Pop by and say hi. x

Lots of love
