I’m Sam AKA Wild Willow. I am from a small village in Yorkshire called Luddenden.
I created Wild Willow Fairies 12mths ago, and I love every moment of making these beautiful little fairies for people, making sure they are filled with lots of love and magic.
I previously had a cake business, making bespoke novelty cakes and wedding cakes which I loved, but was diagnosed with a condition called M.E and slowly became to Ill to continue.
After many years of learning to live with the illness I decided to try again, and Wild Willow fairies was born.
Wild Willow Fairies are all made from recycled fabrics. I find it so exciting to find a piece of beautiful material, my imagination goes into magic mode and I pretty much know straight away the fairy that the fabric will become.
I found as I spent many hours at my workstation a magical world started to emerge as I gave the fairies and mermaids little stories to accompany them. This is when Nuddle End Village first Started to come to life. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will know all about the magical village and the characters that live there. Billy Duck and Eric the Flying Pig are real cheeky characters who will hopefully one day be appearing with the fairies in my first book.
