My Buzz

Being chosen my Theo Paphitis as a #SBS winner has given me a huge boost in confidence. The amount of new followers I have gained in the 24 hours since winning has been amazing! I look forward to networking with them and learning from the experiences of past winners. Maybe being the next Cath Kidston isn't just a dream after all....

My Bio

Hi, I am Cathryn, a stay at home to 3 gorgeous children. I have always loved 'cutting and sticking' and wanted to be a Blue Peter presenter when I was young!! Instead I studied Business Studies and Marketing and worked as a Textile Designer. After having my children I dreamed of using all the skills I learnt and use them to run my own business enabling me to continue to stay at home, so in 2011 I took the plunge, bought a sewing machine and created Florence and Grace. I work in an evening when the children are in bed, making cushions, doorstops and bunting from beautiful fabrics. Many of my items can be personalised making a truly unique gift. I sell through my website, rent a shelf in a vintage shop and supply a boutique!! My dream now is to sell other beautiful products from small businesses and mums that make alongside my products on my website.

My Business Tips

Don't give up on a dream and believe that anything is possible. Networking on Twitter has opened up so many opportunities for me including this win!
