Whilst I have been a registered business for approx 23 years, designing cloth dolls and matching quilts, I have been in my current retail shop for 17 years so it's birthday time !!!
Btw-many people still believe my business name is such because my designs incorporate my naive drawings of dolls, raggedies, bears or Gollies but it's not so.
My business name has been my nickname my whole life. As the youngest of three girls, my Dad called me Li'l Bloke- it was natural to me that I used that name as my business name.
