At The Country Living Fair show last month I discovered Jane Means. Her stand was such eye candy, with rolls and rolls of delightful ribbons and Easter decorations. Jane Means, an ex florist, started her business in 1995 making bespoke cards and wedding stationery which became very successful and a card she was commissioned to make for the Queen was on display at Buckingham Palace Mews. In the late nineties Jane turned her hand to her real passion, gift wrapping, and after completing her teacher training she started gift wrapping courses in her parents Lincolnshire watermill.
Jane is now known as Britain's gift wrapping expert and runs a gift wrapping school up and down the country, appearing on television and featuring in many glossy magazines and national newspapers.
From the website:
"She has worked for a well known French Fashion house in Europe, wrapped a gift for the Queen and personally gift wrapped for various celebrities (She won't disclose names!)."
She also designs her own ribbon collections and decorations, which are featured regularly in the press and are sold online and wholesale.
I bought quite a few of her wonderful ribbons on the day and have started incorporating them into my Easter decorations, coming soon...
