About Guiti Creations

Hi, I’m Fiona and welcome to my shop. One of my earliest earliest memories is of being tucked up in a chair on a large cushion leaning to sew on a hand turning Singer sewing machine - I must have been about 4! Forward to what seems like a lifetime later I am still busy making things.

How did Guiti Creations get started?

After studying art at university, my first job was as a colour coordinator in a clothing factory. After emigrating from Africa back to the UK, I became an art teacher and enjoyed a wonderful career inspiring generations of youngsters in all creative aspects. Somewhere along the line I also fell in love with beautiful fabrics and, given my ecological beliefs that fast fashion is not sustainable and that world resources are scarce, I aim to produce ranges of beautiful objects that can last a lifetime (such as Christmas stockings) or be used over and over by different people (for example, fabric gift bags)

A bit about where your lovely purchases are coming from

At the moment I sew at the dining table but hope, in the future, to have my own dedicated studio … one day!

And what about the crafting talent behind these great products

I started about six years ago to make one-off ‘curly-toed’ heirloom Christmas stockings as I wanted something individual and special to give as Christmas presents to my family and friends. These were so well received that I started making them, and other fabric items, for sale too.

I regularly scour the internet for over-runs, sample books and discontinued lines of beautiful fabrics that may otherwise end up in landfill to make products from. The quality of a product is really important to me as flimsy and/or badly made items do not last.

I am lucky in that my lovely husband is the powerhouse behind the pricing, packing and posting of our items, leaving me to get on with creating.

My most popular year-round seller are our fully lined fabric gift bags: at any one time I usually have over 200 in stock in various sizes, colours and different fabrics. My favourite ones are definitely the silk embroidered ones.

Anything else? This is our sellers chance to tell you a bit about themselves

Having now retired from teaching I am finally able to fully immerse myself in sewing, pottery and painting … Yay!
