Annoucement: We have two new team leaders!
Having started our team more than two years ago in 2015, we have accomplished so much and grown immensely. We started with just a handful of team members. Now have more than one thousand members. We've put on craft parties, organised small pop up shops and hosted large craft markets. We also like to put an emphasis on taking care of our team members, with meet ups to support each other and socialise, as well as holding educational workshops to improve our small businesses. All of this takes a huge amount of organisational and practical work, which could not be done without our captains, our team of leaders and the support we have from our members.
First, meet Dee, from Suede&Co.
Dee makes and designs colourful leather bags and accessories. She was one of the original members of the team, and having just moved to London from Canada, was looking for like-minded local friends. She has a degree in Fashion Design and is an expert in e-commerce. On top of all that, she's kind, enthusiastic and humble! We're all very excited to welcome her as a leader.
Dutch-Australian designer Suzie Kemner, moved to London in the year 2000, thinking the relocation would just be for one year. Well, that one year actually turned into 17 years, after having fallen in love with our city! Suzie has studied fashion design, sewing, shoe making, pattern cutting and textile design in London, and has years of experience working as a graphic designer. She's inspired by 50s, 60s and 70s design and makes clothing, accessories and homeware. What we love about Suzie, is her frank honesty, her sense of humour and how friendly she is. We can't wait to see all the wonderful ideas she brings to the team!
