It’s been a delight hosting illustrator Stephanie Cole over the past few days.

Steph started selling her distinctive greetings cards and kitchen textiles at Made in Stroud when she graduated 7 years ago and was the obvious choice for a distinctive mural about the shop.

Our collaboration with Steph has resulted in a truly stunning piece of wall art.

Do pop in and have a look next time you’re in Stroud.

We are delighted to have been announced as finalists in 4 categories of the Stroud Life Business Awards 2015. We won highly commended in “The Social Enterprise Award”,” Environmental Business of the Year”, and Clare Honeyfield was finalist in “Business Person of the Year”. We were especially honoured to be announced as “Communicator of the Year” at the dazzling awards dinner, held at The New Lodge in Minchinhampton.


This year we had fun collecting donations from local businesses for the goody bags at the Stroud Life Awards dinner, so everyone went home with a Made in Stroud paper bag of loveliness.

It was a great evening had by all, here are some photos of the event itself. #SLBA
