If you are looking for an imaginative and unique fabric themed gift then look no further than Jacqueline and her imaginatively titled business NoBoJacs (Note Book Jackets! Genius!).
It all started out with her making lovely fabric covers for note books but has quickly escalated into a vision of bunting, aprons, peg bags, new baby gifts, wedding items and of course, birthday gifts! And to top it all off she even is a dab hand (in fact expert hand) at made to measure curtains, blinds and soft furnishings; measuring, creating and fitting.
In her beautifully decorated Pop Up the High Street shop customers are busily looking at every piece she has made. The beauty of what Jacqueline makes is that each piece is individual and personal. All items are made to order so you are able to choose the colour, design and size of the item they are seeking.
I was particularly taken with her unique bunting design…I am such a one for bunting! In fact, my bunting obsession has become quite the running joke amongst my friends! Jacqueline creates her bunting so that it is interchangeable!!!!!!!!! Oh my! Attaching each flag with her specialist Button technique means that you can swap and change your designs, add to them, reduced them , theme them to your heart’s content! Unlike conventional bunting which is sewn to the ribbon or rope from which it hangs NoBoJacs Button Bunting hangs freely from its ribbon. They are so expertly created…I could have bought them all!!! My favourite was the monochrome pink button design.
Jacqueline says that her heart truly lies in the made to measure business and loves new orders which she creates with love and perfection. A wonderfully charismatic personality you cannot help but love her enthusiasm for all things fabric! With more than 25 years experience in fabrics and furnishings she really knows her craft.
She also sees her work as creating that calm, therapeutic atmosphere and even has ideas about starting a therapy group using her skills in fabric creations and her background as a mental health worker. The benefits would be endless with this wonderful idea and I could think of no one better to bring this to fruition than Jacqueline.
NoBoJacs are going to be a Pop Up the High street for a limited time and I strongly urge you to pay Jacqueline a visit. Now is the time to update those curtains, re-design your bedroom with stunning handmade, made to measure blinds, plump up your sofa with divine cushions to suit your own individual style and decor and place your orders for one-off gifts for all those Sumer weddings you have coming up in your calendar! Ooh, I would also get a head start on your Christmas orders too….I can see Jacqueline getting extremely busy in the run up to the festive season! Don’t miss out!
NoBoJacs shop was like a fabric Aladdin’s Cave, the more you look, the more you find…and the more you want to buy the lot! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to NoBoJacs and meeting the lovely Jacqueline, you will too!
