The Ribbon Rose Studio is one of Cheadle Hulme’s little treasures. Personally, Kate has been a great help to our family as she has made “Nanny Bears” for both my kids as well as their cousins and some even for the grownups.
Kate offers a unique service by transforming clothes and textiles, which are full of memories and turning them into memory pieces, including teddy bears, quilts, cushions and more. A truly special service which to her customers is absolutely invaluable.
As well as her memory pieces, Kate also teaches crochet and knitting both one to one and in groups. She brings her customers together, has created a community, they’ve taken up a new hobby, a skill, something they can be proud of, something they have something to show for it.
Kate really offers more than just bears and classes, The Ribbon Rose Studios, named after her own memories of her early crafting, offers local residents an experience and she can cater for all ages and abilities.
Having recently rebranded with a brand new logo, preparing to reopen her studio to small groups and ahead of National Teddy Bear day tomorrow, have a listen to Kate and her story, how she’s got to Cheadle Hulme, from New Zealand via Japan.
