Welcome to 'MadMudskipper'
Life is a journey full of unexpected twists and turns!
I had initially planned to take a short break from my teaching career and started making bunting as a way of 'staying creative'. I taught 'Design & Technology; Textiles' at KS3 and GCSE and 'A' Level as Product Design and quickly realised the skills and knowledge I was using to teach Technology were easily transferable to running a small business. Even before I had left my teaching post in July 2011, my bunting sales were growing rapidly. I made a decision - no Summer break (or adult gap year) for me. I registered as a business, developed my website and expanded my range of bunting styles. 'MadMudskipper' was born!
The following year was the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and my 'vintage style' bunting was in big demand. Orders flooded in for street parties, shop displays and all sorts of other venues for the celebrations. I was delighted to be asked to supply bunting to a well-known food company to be used for prizes for their schools' Jubilee competition.
My bunting is used for all types of occasions, events and locations – weddings, Christenings, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, public holidays and celebrations, garden parties, fetes, caravans, beach huts, retail shops, restaurants, pubs, music festivals, photo shoots, cookery books, marketing events, film and TV sets (one of my favourite programmes, too!). It has even been in the presence of Royalty more than once.
I am solely in charge of all aspects of my business from design and manufacture to packing and posting which means I can ensure quality, hand-made products alongside prompt customer service.
As well as the wide range of bunting available on my website, I also offer a custom bunting service at no extra charge. I work closely with you to design beautiful bunting for your special event.
