The Who, What Why and Where of the Penny Peach Co.
We are a new company based in Kenilworth, England.
I am the proprietor, and I have lived here all my life. I have had numerous jobs in the past, but, now I am of a certain age, and life has presented to me an opportunity, I am hoping to build an online business selling lovely things for your home for your family and for You.
Craft has always been in my life from a very early age. When I was growing up, my mother and Grandmother used to teach me knitting, sewing, embroidery and baking. My Grandmother was in service at a laundry who service the King of England’s clothes when he came to stay in rural Leicestershire, during the hunting season.
My sister made herself a quilt using English paper piecing when she was a teenager. She made it using scraps. She cut 2″ square newspaper templates and hand stitched all the whole quilt herself. It took her a long time. I envied her patience and her dedication.
I remember having to make a patchwork cushion cover at school. I discovered the log cabin block, and loved it mainly because it could be sewn on a sewing machine, That is more my kind of pace.
It was always a source of constant regret that I never finished that cushion. But after many departures to different crafting pastimes, I was reunited with quilting last year. I have been completely captivated by the craft, and I finally made a log cabin cushion of sorts, as a gift to my sister.
Now I am spending my time creating lots of lovely things and making them available for purchase here on my online store.
Please do sign up to my email list and I will update you on all new products and events and blog posts as they are released.
We look forward to having the pleasure of your company on this exciting journey
