A Little About Me
Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Julie Rutter and this is my online home. I am mum to four children who never sit still, and wife to John who is always there to help sort out the mess! We have a very active family life with our wee dog, two cats, hamster and rabbit!
I love being outdoors and trained, and worked, as an ecologist and forester. After finishing work I discovered how much I loved sewing – I started by making clothes and quilts for our little ones and haven’t stopped since. It helps settle me down after a busy day and I always have plans and ideas rolling around my head, even if it is many days before I have a chance to sit down and try them out! We live in the Black Isle, just north of Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands. It is a stunningly beautiful area and the mountains, sea and forest all around inspire my work.
I now sew beautiful handmade goodness for your children and your homes. I love to use natural materials and beautiful fabrics and everything is thoroughly tested by my four tearaways! You’ll find Forest Poppy products here
