Dear Customers

We are all faced with extraordinary circumstances at the moment and it is very sad yet totally understandable that many of my art, design and craft shows have been cancelled. Some show organisers are adapting to circumstances and finding ways for us to exhibit safely and for visitors to enjoy the show. I have some shows booked for later in the year and I am hoping that these will be able to go ahead whilst observing all safety measures.

At Designer Silk Artist I am taking every precaution necessary to protect my customers in accordance with the government guidelines. My online shop is still open & orders will be posted out twice a week while I am able to do so & the postal services are still functioning.

This is a fluid situation and as i receive updates and news I will be updating accordingly. As I work alone in my studio & only see one other person my work situation is continuing as normal.

I would like to send my very best wishes to all my customers and thank you all for your encouragement and support over the last 29 years. Hopefully we will back to business as usual later in the year, until then please stay safe, keep social distancing & keep washing those hands!
