About Little Conkers

Thank you so much for visiting Conker Corner! I’m Clare Trowbridge and here’s a little bit about Little Conkers.

I’ve always had the urge to create – I think it’s part of human nature. There’s the thrill of beginning a brand new creation, the excitement as you near the end of a project, and then the on-going satisfaction of seeing, wearing or using what you have made.

Little Conkers began, as many small businesses do, with me making things for my own family, then friends, and then opening an Etsy shop. I soon realised that what I enjoy most is not just creating items myself, but helping others to create, so I started publishing patterns and creating kits.

I get an enormous thrill from seeing the pictures of items my clever customers around the world have made from my patterns and kits, and seeing the items I have made happily installed in their new homes.

As a family we try to live as lightly as possible on the planet, and Little Conkers follows our ethos – if I can’t do it sustainably, I won’t do it! Everything at Little Conkers is as eco-friendly as I can make it, from the 100% renewable electricity that fuels my late-night creativity, to the eclectic selection of recycled boxes I keep for packaging your purchases.

Little Conkers is still evolving, but I’m loving this journey that takes me to new friends and customers all around the world every day.
