The Love Buddy Collection

We're now offering a new range of Love Buddies just in time for Valentine's Day! Lots of reds, pinks and hearts are featured with these little buddies and they think they’ll make great Valentine’s gifts for that someone special! Remember, each one can be personalised! Introducing Nate, one of our love buddies.

"Nate likes to attend fancy dress costume parties, drinking girly cocktails (preferably something green!), bowling with his friends and eating Indian food. He has a pet sea monkey called "Wally" and enjoys using outrageous pick up lines on the ladies!!"

Stewie says a big HELLO!

Stewie just wanted to pop by and say hello! He's the newest addition to our collection and has just been added to our online stores. Stewie is very excited about the New Year and is looking for someone to adopt him.....preferably a family with a nice big TV and lots of chocolate biscuits!

"Stewie likes freshly sharpened pencils, Harry Potter and believes one day robots will rule the world! Stewie dislikes needles and his favourite word is “slurp”."

Whoohoo - we have snow!!

So we're very excited to finally have some snow! Whilst the rest of the country has had it for weeks, down in the South West we barely ever get a flake so the buddies were very excited to wake up this morning to see lots of the lovely stuff.

Stewie immediatley decided to go brave the cold to go build himself a snowman. When he could no longer feel his hands, he decided instead to build a snowball. Now he just needs someone to throw it at.....

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our followers! 2009 turned out to be a bit of a surprise year for us. Having been making our sock buddies for just over a year now we never imagined when we started that people would love them as much as we love creating them. The Christmas period was absolutely crazy with many late night stitching sessions and more than a few mild panic attacks preparing for our shows. Now with 2010 just beginning, it’s a great time to start afresh! Let the stitching begin……
We’ve decided to start the New Year as we mean to go on....organised! Before Christmas it looked as though there had been some sort of craft explosion with ribbons, buttons and bags and bags of stuffing all over the place! Our office/workroom is well overdue for a ‘spruce’ so we’re gonna give it some much needed T.L.C.
Not only is our workroom getting a makeover, but so to is our Sock Buddy Collection! We’re experimenting with new designs and this year we’re looking forward to introducing a new range of holiday themed buddies. With Valentines Day, Mothers Day and St Patrick’s Day fast approaching we’re stitching new little buddies in appropriately coloured designs. We’re particularly keen to try out some Easter bunnies! It should be interesting, we’ll see how they work out, keep your eyes peeled…...
