Ta da! Introducing Gemma

November 16 2013

" Gemma has been a gift from God when it comes to meeting the needs of Silver Sixpence brides..."

Whilst Nicola takes some time off to get to know new baby Angus, we are very pleased to introduce the very lovely Gemma, who will be holding the Silver Sixpence fort for the next few months.

Gemma has been with us since April and is a gift from God when it comes to meeting the needs of our Silver Sixpence brides – she is creative, an excellent sewer, supremely organised and an entirely lovely person into the bargain, what’s not to love?!

Gemma graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a degree in Fashion and Textiles. Alongside setting up Jam magazine in Manchester several years ago, she has spent the time since running her own business creating children’s clothing and running crafting sessions, making her brilliantly placed to lead our ‘Craft it Yourself’ and ‘An Era of Experience’ hen party workshops.

As well as being super talented, Gemma also makes the time to be wife to Mark (a videographer) and mum to Ollie, who is three, and Eve (who is six going on 16).

So it is very much business as usual while Nicola is off and Gemma would love to hear from you, whether it’s to discuss a bespoke order, answer your queries or just have a general chat so email her on hello@silversixpenceinhershoe.co.uk 

Angus - small but perfectly formed

November 16 2013

" Introducing Angus, the newest member of the Silver Sixpence family... "

Some of you may have already picked up on our exciting news via Twitter and Facebook but, in case not, we’d like to introduce you to Angus, the latest addition to the Silver Sixpence family (or the Wellard family, as they are more commonly known).

Angus arrived late at night near the end of October, after putting poor mum Nicola through the wringer for many hours. He is here at last though, a healthy 8lb 1oz and utterly gorgeous. As you can see from the pics, big brother Dougie is pretty taken with him too and is putting in some serious effort into being the best big brother in the world, ever.

So, as a result of her perfect new arrival, Nicola is taking a bit of time off but she’s leaving you in the more than capable hands of the lovely Gemma, who you can read a bit more about just up the page…!
