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

Ransom Wood is such a beautiful place for our office. Not only is it a stunning location but the staff are amazing! We’d be lost without Alison and Sarah on the Business Centre Reception.
I love this place. I have worked here for the past seven years and I can highly recommend Oak House A.

We would like to send our thanks for all the work you have done recently at Cedar House. We were really impressed with your electricians Tony and Ben as to how they refused drinks ( we thought all trades people worked on tea and coffee supplies), how polite and considerate they were and finally how tidy they left our offices.
Thanks very much and it’s been a real pleasure working with you over the years also. As a landlord, you’ve been fantastic – always being helpful and proactive, I wish you and Jane and all the other staff at Ransomwood all the very best.
