Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit quiet on here and I wanted to give you an update on Simmerdim. I’m not currently making anything new and won’t be doing any Christmas fairs or a Christmas range this year. I’m hoping to review everything in the new year and see if I can still make it work. Like everything, the cost of glass and materials has gone up dramatically and the amount of time I have free to work on glass has gone down. As always, thank you for your past support and custom! X ...

So it’s coming to that time of year when I need to step it down a gear. I’m finishing up my last projects for the summer and anything promised will be with you over the next couple of weeks before the school holidays start. What I do have made will be on the website and in Allium. Hopefully there are many more days like this coming up! (Photo taken ironing in the garden today) Sally x

What a day of hard grind (stained glass joke 🙄) I had to share this satisfying result even if I have to wait for my fingerprints to re-grow! They are half way there, just need to copper foil and then solder them with the hanging chains. More prep for the website (update coming soon) @alliumgallery and @dalmenycraftmarket on the 21st May.

I’m up my ladder this afternoon for the first time in ages. Prepping some new hearts to restock @alliumgallery and starting to get ready for @dalmenycraftmarket next month.

I’m absolutely delighted to be part of the Dalmeny craft market next month! It’s the first face to face market I’ve been to in so long and I can’t wait! Have a look at their page on Instagram to hear a bit more about all the other great makers who are coming along!

**UPDATE - I’ve now reached full capacity for orders so I need to stop taking orders. I originally planned on making 50 but I’m now at 120! I hope to make more in the future and I’ll post if I do. Thanks x

Like everyone else I’ve been watching in horror as the war on Ukraine progresses and felt pretty helpless.

Inspired by a fellow maker I had the idea of making hearts in the colours of the Ukrainian flag. The thought being that any money raised would go to the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine appeal and also that we can show solidarity by displaying them.

I am selling them for £10 each and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the appeal. I will be covering the cost of all the materials. Orders can be placed with me directly and can be paid for by bank transfer. If you need any posted please add an extra £3 per order to cover the postage cost.

I intend to make an initial batch of 50 and if there is more demand I will aim to make more once those orders have been delivered.

Thanks in advance for your support 🇺🇦
