A Quirky 2012

Well its that time already - 2012 is almost over and 2013 is rapidly approaching...


It's been a great Christmas for Quirky Bee, the sewing machines have barely had a rest, but we do love to be busy.  The Leamington Spa Christmas markets were great fun and a great success. We enjoyed actually being able to talk to our customers face to face, and heard some lovely things being said about Quirky Bee!  I think thats one of the most exciting parts, as we are so online based.  - Great to meet you all!


Over the last year we've been working on our gadget case range which has been doing well, we have brought out new phone cases to fit the popular iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3s, and will soon be listing iPad mini cases. Kindle cases have remained as popular as ever. Watch this space as new gadgets are launched - as Quirky Bee will be keeping up to date!


Mid 2012 we had our Quirky Bee logo designed for us by the super-talented Rebecca over at One Sugar Please.  We  absolutely loved the resulting logo.

Christmas may barely be over, but already we're thinking about the Spring.  We're looking to develop our product range further in 2013, including sunglasses cases, camera cases and more gifts.  Have you any suggestions for new products that you think Quirky Bee should have a go at making?  

If so, drop us a comment below to let us know your thoughts!

Do keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter, where we post all our photos of what we've been up to   - we always love to hear from you all.

We're all looking forward for 2013,   lets see what it brings...

The Quirky Christmas Fair Guide

Have you started the dreaded Christmas shopping yet?  Quirky Bee have been so busy preparing orders this year, that any kind of gift hunting has been put on the back burner.  Our first Christmas fair this year is at Southam on Sunday 25th Nov, where we will be pleased to introduce our range of quirky gifts.  Lots of unique stocking fillers for under £5 include, compact mirrors, hand embroidered badge cards, Purse and mirror sets, phone cases and cosmetic bags.

Compact Mirror and Purse Set

We are looking forward to taking some time out to have a nose at the other stalls and see what goodies they have on offer.  Other Christmas fairs can also be found in Leamington spa and Birmingham every weekend from the 25th November.  Cirencester, a quaint little market town in the heart of the Cotswolds is also playing host to a very festive Christmas market in the run up to Christmas.

Ho Ho Ho!

 Love it or hate it.  Christmas will be here in just under 4 months, and the time for preparation can never come too soon for all us crafty makers.  To speak the truth, I’ve never been a really big fan of the joyous season, but choosing festive fabrics, signing up to craft fairs and designing new products have all proved to be part of the transformation.

Quirky Bee have already signed up to several Christmas craft fairs and markets this year, so keep an eye out for more details in future posts.  We could be in an area near you!

Now, we’ll give you a sneak peek of what we’ve been working on for this season’s festivities.  However, we won’t be listing Christmas items until late September, for fear of being lynched by all the Baaaar Humbugs out there!
