'Send Us Your Snaps' Competition!

Our lovely customers often send us photographs documenting the weird and wonderful ways in which they display our hand-embroidered pieces.  Some of these are so cute, showing their babies and dogs snuggling down with our cushions and throws.  Some, on the other hand, are a little more risqué – it might compromise our reputation if we publish them!

Above is quite a silly one showing Jan and Jo on a photo shoot last week, wearing the bespoke Fortnum & Mason tea cosies we created for the store's 'Mad for Tea' exhibition.  Below are a few of our favourite images sent in by customers in the past – we’re sure you’ll agree with us on how beautiful they are!

… And because we enjoy receiving your pictures so much, we’ve decided to offer the fantastic prize of £300 of Jan Constantine textiles to one lucky photographer!

This is Baby Freya, our friend Dean's baby daughter, surrounded by Love.

So, if you have a particularly lovely, interesting (and not quite so risqué) photo that you'd like to enter, please email it to with your name and – if possible – a short descriptive paragraph by 30th September 2013.

All entries will be displayed in the 'Send us Your Snaps’ gallery with the entrant's name and brief description.  The winning entry will be chosen for its content, beauty and authenticity (note: it is not expected to be a professional photograph – even a mobile upload will do!) and the winner will be contacted via email or telephone.  The winning image will be announced via email newsletter during October.

Get out that camera, and good luck!
