It begins with the house, and the house is named. Ticklepenny Corner, our ancient house in the country has a history exactly 100 years older then ourselves. Once pasture, once teeming with horses, once many hundreds of acres larger, the 1.3 it is today still retains the atmosphere of its previous, larger personalities. It's name is taken from the most excellent book Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons. Her witty, character rich, strange British dialect filled novel is something everyone should read. It is here that patterns are dreampt up, tested on my darling children and drafted. Our designs are powered by practical, imaginative ideas. We strive to bring function and aesthetic qualities together to create pieces that are enticing, useful and fun to make. All patterns are drafted with professional graphics and come with complete instructions. We believe in the intrinsic value of making ones own articles and hope that by designing nifty patterns for every day use, Ticklepenny Corner is the catalyst for your next project.
