When I was a kid quarantine was a regular thing. There was always some child off school because of Mumps, Measles or Chicken Pox. It was miserable - not bring allowed out. I thought it was a distinct childhood memory until this year and the Covid19 pandemic. The speed at which it's groped us globally is truly frightening.What the ramifications are are yet to be seen.
Jessica Light is still accepting orders but at the moment are unable to give definitive lead times as the workshop and most of our yarn suppliers are temporarily closed. 
But be assured as soon as we are able that loom will be clattering along at full speed. 

Trims from our new Tuileries Collection. 

Stay safe, well and take care of yourself and others.

There's been many windmills going on in my mind since the beginning of 2020. One of which was an offer from the BCFA/DTI to go as part of their delegation, and show at the Independent Hotel Show, Amsterdam, March 17-18, 2020. Well, how could I say no?

Our Heygate collection, which we'll be showing.

So we're packing up our suitcase of passementerie and heading to the city of canals in the land of windmills and tulips. Who knows I might even sell a few tassels.

So as another year drags it's feet to the finishing line, is it too soon to start thinking about what you want to achieve in the next twelve months? A big question that doesn't always need a grandiose answer. Sometimes just a small step is sufficient like learning a new skill.
If this is the case how about coming to The Handweavers Studio on 8th February 2020 where Ill be teaching an advanced tassel making workshop and come away with a tieback.

I was twenty the first time I went to New York and I remember being struck with awe coming into Manhattan. It was everything I'd ever imagined -romantic, rowdy, rapturous- and more. I felt like I was in a movie the whole time.
Subsequent trips didn't dim the appeal, and so when the opportunity to show there presented itself I jumped at it and I'm delighted to announce that we'll be at Boutique Design New York at the Javits Centre, 10-11 November, Stand 2251.
We'll be launching two new collections as well as showing our new diffusion range, Dogtown.
