See your cherished threads transformed through the 'Remember Me' commissioning service. This sensitive service enables you to bring along clothes or textiles which hold sentimental value to be remade into comforting furnishings or special gifts for you and your loved ones including cushions, quilts, throws, artwork and cuddlies.
" I had 3 bears put together through Barley's Remember Me service, using some of my late brother's clothing. This was the first experience of death in the family and it really did shake the family up. The bears have bought a lot of joy and comfort to both my mum and my sister. It's surprising how the clothes made into a functional something can really help to ease.. or take the sting out of a bad experience "

How the service works
Look through the clothes or textiles you would like us to work with. For larger or multiple items more garments will be needed. You may have a clear idea of what you would like us to make or Barley will gladly discuss ideas through with you. We now have an embroidery machine so can add personalised text or messages to your piece
The service is made up of 3 strands:
'Foget-Me-Not' - Remembering lost loved ones.
'School Days' - Remembering the best days of your life!
'Early years' - remembering your children's first moments.
