Meet the Seller - Dorset Team Christmas Fair - Sue and Jo from Made by Swimmer


Names : Sue and Jo
Shop Name: Made by Swimmer
Located in : Bournemouth
Sells: Toys, accessories and cushions, made by hand using recycled fabrics and materials.

Maker's Story: We are two sisters with a passion for sewing. We use recycled and vintage fabrics to make an eclectic range of products. We love to trawl through second hand shops and markets to find fabrics that inspire us. We pride ourselves on the fact that at least 90% of the materials used for each product is recycled or reused

Made by swimmer evolved from a women's art group we were involved with at our local school.Our work is driven by the fabrics that we find in second hand outlets and flea markets - we find something and think 'that would make a great....' or sometimes we just buy something because it's beautiful and months later, a use for it will come into our heads. It must be in the genes but we share very similar ideas and rarely disagree on the finished work.




Dorset Team Christmas Fair: Made by Swimmer will be selling their cushions and accessories at Dorset Team Christmas Fair on Saturday 3rd December at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne.


Please come along, meet Sue and Jo and our other makers and sellers.


Doors open at 10am and close at 4pm and it is free entry.
