How is everyone out there?
A bit freaked out?
Wondering how you are going to cope, worried about elderly relatives?
Coronavirus is a great leveller and we are all going though it together!
I'm here to tell you, it'll all be ok! WE CAN DO THIS!
As humans we all need to be kind, look after ourselves, our neighbours and family and take it a day at a time.
So I wanted to share what I'm doing......
My priority, other than the above, is the safety of my customers.
I am still sending out orders at the moment.
I can assure you that all items I have in stock, where imported, came into this country prior to December 2019.
I work from home and I've been isolating anyway (though do not have ANY symptoms or specific reason to self-isolate).
If I have any suspicion that I may have been infected or been in contact with someone who has been infected I will post here/on social media, stop sending out orders until I am absolutely sure I am clear of infection.
I'm washing my hands thoroughly and disinfecting all surfaces prior to preparing your orders in line with UK Government and Public Health England advice.
I'm keeping up to date with any changes to that advice.
I have been posting orders daily. Though I'm looking now, to move to every other day, and I'll see how that goes.
I'm prepared for orders to decrease, but please be assured I will continue to work. I have plenty of stock to get ready and add to the website and hopefully I can send out some entertaining posts on social media too.
How long can coronavirus survive on fabric surfaces?
It is hard to advise as to whether, or how long coronavirus can survive on fabric surfaces. Believe me I've searched!
The belief is, that it can last longer on non-porous surfaces (like stainless steel, laminates etc) than it lasts on porous surfaces (like fabric).
On cardboard it can last up to 24 hours.

SO MY ADVICE IS, if you are at all worried about the potential of coronavirus contamination in any order you receive, PUT IT IN QUARANTINE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS before opening it.
Also, it goes without saying, to follow UK Government and Public Health England advice.
It's also worth checking out Royal Mail coronavirus information.
If you have any queries - please let me know! I'm happy to help in any way I can.
Keep safe! Be kind. And use creativity to look after your mental health.
