Green Parent Magazine Feature

A few months ago we sent one of our beautiful toddler quilts to the Green Parent magazine for an expert review. Needless to say, they were so impressed with the quality and design of our upcycled toddler bedding that they decided to feature Old Threads in their April-May issue – coming out this month on 9th March.

You can pick up a copy in WHSmith, M&S, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Boots, newsagents and health food stores. We’ve also posted an advert on the Green Parent website offering a 10% discount on your first order: www.thegreenparent.co.uk

Keep an eye out for our new products – the cushions are being printed as we speak, and our fab duvet covers are out next week!

 

Publicity and politics

Old Threads Budget Response - Telegraph 29 11 11

Old Threads Budget Response – Telegraph 29 11 11

What a week! With two consecutive features in the Daily Telegraph, plus a great write up in our local glossy mag, The Wealden Times – it’s full steam ahead at Old Threads.

So no doubt you’ve heard a bit about the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement? Well, with so much of it aimed at small businesses like ours, we were thrilled to be able to put in our two pence worth! We won’t go into detail now, but if you’re interested in the bigger picture, it’s all online here:

However, if you’re less concerned with politics, don’t worry, what it all boils down to is that our beautiful quilts stand for much more than just another mass-produced product on the shelf. They’re one-of-a-kind and they have a fantastic story to tell…

Photo-shoot for the Daily Telegraph

Things are moving along at quite a pace. Yesterday we were photographed for an article coming out in the Daily Telegraph next week! As you can imagine, posing with our beautiful quilts was great fun, but quite nerve-raking at the same time. Added

to the forthcoming interview on the 29th with Richard Tyler, Enterprise Editor for the Daily Telegraph, production at Old Threads is set to move up a gear.

Thankfully we have a lovely batch of quilts all finished and ready to go. So if you want one in time for Christmas, get your order in now ahead of the rush!

Keep an eye out for the article – it will be featured sometime around the 29th November to tie in with the Chancellor’s Autumn Review. Which, by the way, we are also being asked our humble opinion on!

Boutique is now Open!

We’ve done it – we are open for business! Our toddler quilts are available in 3 colours, Pomegranate Red, Petrol Blue, and Mustard Seed Yellow. We are accepting payments through Paypal, with 2 postal options for the UK, depending on how quickly you want it!

We currently have 6 of each colour in stock, with an estimated turnaround time of 4 weeks on new batches. We will be limiting the ‘Once Upon A Time’ range to 300 editions, at which point we will release a new design, so get your orders in now for a Christmas present your little ones will really love!
