About

Welcome to Folded Hugs and Stitched History based in Ash, Surrey (right on the Hampshire border!).

Deb from PDQ Cards

My name is Deb Cooper and I first started making cards when I was about 4 years old. However poster paint, glue and large sheets of sugar paper didn’t really give me the professional finish I wanted so I stopped until much later when I was all grown up.

Whilst coping with lockdown and Covid19 restrictions we’ve acknowledged that time is precious and that we all need human contact; a letter or a card in the post has meant the world to so many. A simple piece of paper folded in half has replaced what, for many, we were unable to do in person.

My cards are made with love and so I’m delighted to introduce my new name “Folded Hugs”

You can see some of my creations (I often forget to photograph them – my latest resolution is to do better!) in my Gallery.

In addition to card making I also have a family who are sport mad, work in a primary school and have a rescue dog called Tess (you may get to meet her at my classes – she’s very friendly!).

Happy crafting!

Deb
