    #MeetTheMaker

    Poppy Treffry sewing

    It’s #meetthemaker day this weekend! I’m Poppy and little did I know when I set up my sewing machine in a Newlyn fish loft 17 years ago, that it was the start of an enterprise that would still be going strong today.

    With £200 in the bank and a very old, cranky Singer sewing machine, I began to turn my sketches of everyday life in Cornwall into products that people could use and treasure.

    At every turn there was something exciting, tea cosies being snapped up by Liberty, a bespoke collection for Fortnum and Mason, writing two books and opening my own shop in St. Ives.

    I now work with a small team who cut, sew, pack and sell the products that I design and develop. Everything is either handmade in Cornwall or sourced from UK based manufacturers and we work with unbleached organic cotton.

    Although the studio’s bigger now, it’s still filled to the brim with fabrics, the kettle’s on and there’s a hum of sewing machines and scissors...
