Peggies is the culmination of long held dreams. A dream of financial self-sufficiency, of easing the financial burden from my husband, and a strong desire to remain at home to tend to the needs of my children. Over the years my creative side has bubbled away and I have tried so many crafty things from cross stitching through to egg-crafting, knitting through to mixed media art, crocheting through to papercrafting.
I started making peg doll designs for my children and adored watching their imaginations flourish as they played. The pleasure that is gained from something so simple (and technology free!) makes my heart sing. Role playing games ensued, with each character developing a little personality and amazing stories were created and played out for hours.
Soon friends started asking if I could make peg dollies for their children as birthday gifts and I realised that it wasn't just me that sought the simplicity and quality that allows imaginations to soar. I then began to receive requests for other peg dolly items including bespoke peg families and personalised wedding cake toppers.
People were saying I should sell my makes and it just seemed to be the natural progression to start taking things more seriously and step up a level thus Peggies was born.
