I recently ordered a lampshade from Dorset Patchworks and am delighted with it as it looks even better than it did in the photo. The packaging was very protective and it arrived quickly - well worth paying for the p&p. I am so pleased with the lampshade that I will probably order some other ones in the future.
Treated my favourite teapot to a Mid Mod Circles in Red Tea Cozy......! Looks great and has had some lovely compliments from friends round to enjoy a cuppa! Thank you!
Self indulgent purchase of new oven gloves for our caravan, even though there's no oven :) The yellow and grey colour scheme fits in perfectly and the combination of stripes outside and spots inside gives the gloves a real lift. Thanks Devi for a beautifully finished, practical and delightful addition to our caravan adventures...
I have just received the 2 bespoke gifts I ordered from Devi. Firstly they were beautifully wrapped but more importantly they were perfectly made. Devi helped me through the choosing process, helping with colour options &styles for a tote bag and oven gloves and always willing to answer any questions I had. If you are looking for a really special, unique and handmade gift I can really recommend Devi.
I was given the most beautiful home-made quilt for Christmas.
My Husband had asked Devi to create an individual patchwork. He chose the collection of fabric and Devi checked with him, advising on the design, throughout the process.
I am thrilled to have such a unique present and one which I shall treasure.
Devi is very talented and the quality of the finished product is exceptional - I would definitely recommend Dorset Patchworks for a special gift.
My wife and I received an original Dorset Patchworks quilt as a wedding present and we love it! It's obviously made with incredible care and attention to detail, all the way down to a hand embroidered message to commemorate our big day. It's something we'll treasure for a lifetime and takes pride of place on our bed at home. Thanks Dorset Patchworks!

Dear Devi, we can't thank you enough for the wonderful wedding quilt you made for Bryn and Catherine's festival themed wedding day. From the care and attention to the choice of fabric, pattern and colour (where you steered us gently in the right direction) to the details of the quilt and the hand embroidered label with their names and wedding date proudly emblazoned, we simply couldn't have asked for more. On the wedding day itself we set up their tent with fairy lights, bunting, illuminated B&C letters and accessories (plus a morning after survival kit) with your quilt in pride of place on their airbed! It looked simply beautiful and perfectly set the romantic and hand crafted mood we set out to create. Glamping doesn't come close!! We'll let the new Mr and Mrs Robinson tell their own story in due course but you couldn't have made the process smoother or more friendly. We'll be back - just need to think up lots of occasions to remember with more stunning Dorset Patchworks quilts :) With thanks and every best wish for the future, Frances and Martin.
I asked Devi to make a quilt for a cousin in Australia who was expecting her first child. I asked her mother as to what colours her nursery was decorated in and if there was anything in particular that she liked. On receiving the advice on the colour scheme and that she liked foxes I e-mailed Devi the colours. I then paid Devi a visit where we searched for materials together finally deciding upon a beautiful fox fabric and contrasting fabrics to go with it. Devi set to work and showed me a sample of what the finished product would look like before going on to finish a beautiful quilt. The Australian couple had no idea that they would be receiving this gift and were delighted when it arrived - immediately sending back to England photographs of baby Reuben lying on it. I was very impressed with Devi's service she was extremely helpful and the finished quilt was of a very high standard. I would certainly use her services again.
I asked Devi to make a quilt for my God-daughter's baby girl, having seen a few photos of some she'd already made. I gave her an idea of the themes and colours I wanted and she came up with a few suggestions to help me make my choice. It was all done by email with plenty of photos showing different layout possibilities etc. After I'd made my choices, Devi emailed another photo showing the patchwork all in place before sewing it together, to make sure I was happy with it. The quilt arrived within a couple of weeks, beautifully made and looking even better than it did in the photos. My God-daughter is absolutely delighted with the quilt and says it's one of the best gifts she's received and will become an heirloom. That says it all!
The quilts I commissioned were absolutely beautiful. They were made for the birth of my niece and nephew and were perfect for this. I was encouraged to contribute to the creative process and this made them feel a very personal gift. Thank you Devi your talent and kindness is deeply appreciated.
