Heidi Creates an Extra Special Touch in Ransom Hall

Extra Special Touch is an artisan embroidery and sewing studio making bespoke wedding and bridal accessories. They specialise in personal embroidered gifts, such as wedding handkerchief, monogram napkins and personalised garters.

Heidi launched Extra Special Touch in 2009, and has been working from her home studio for the last nine years. As the business has outgrown her original space Ransom Wood was the obvious choice for her first commercial studio.

Heidi says “I had been looking for a while to move into a studio space and out of my home studio. Ransom Wood is only a few miles away from home and I love that it is set in the middle of the woods and has such a wonderful feel to the business park. I wanted somewhere to have a working studio space as we make all of our personalised items to order with our embroidery and sewing machines. But I also wanted a welcoming setting so brides could visit us (by appointment only) and have a look at our display of our bespoke wedding and bridal gifts.”

Extra Special touch works with traditional Nottingham Lace, made only a few miles down the road in the last Nottingham lace factory in Ilkeston. They hand make Nottingham Lace handkerchief and garters which can all be personalised by Heidi with names, wedding dates or short messages.

They can also cater for corporate events and are able to embroider your own business brand logo onto napkins and handkerchiefs for special events.

All items are sold via their web site www.extraspecialtouch.co.uk
