"Where else can you get something handmade with a dinosaur on?"

That was what a friend said to me when complaining that Spiky Pebble were not attending any of our local Fairs this year.
Spiky Pebble is a textile company run by Sara Lancaster from her studio in Straiton.

Sara studied textiles in Liverpool and has a great eye her products are bold and unfussy made largely from denim and felt. And yes she does have things with dinosaurs and cars on them.

Her gymbags, aprons and wheatbags are all rugged enough to withstand child treatment!
These are chicken eggcosies that I bought last year - there is also a pink rabbit hiding behind them.

Sara's e-mail is 0r 01655770244. You can buy direct from her or arrange to visit her studio. She also has a small presence on the very stylish PapaStour website
