I'll be making all sorts of one-of-a-kind things out of fabric. I'd like a name that encompasses the spirit of the countryside I used to play in as a child. Chalk streams with sunlight dancing on the surface, weeping willows, meadows full of rabbits, the moon at dusk, flowers in the hedgerow etc. Any ideas?

As I read your post some of your words stood out to me as a brilliant name for your business :-

One Of A Kind

Good luck & best wishes .

Hedgerow Crafts

Countryside Crafts.
Meadowview Arts & Crafts.

I think there's already a business called One of a Kind but some of the other suggestions are good.

You could combine some of the things you mentioned, eg. meadow and hedgerow could become MeadowRow or Chalk and Rabbits if your creations are targeted toward children.

Create a word board to capture the essence you are looking for.

Good luck.

I would be wary of combining country craft work, after hearing of a receptionist who had the task of politely saying it to every caller on the phone. "Country craft work, may I help you?"
Until one day she got the words muddled.

Meadow Makes?
Hydrangea Handicrafts?
Bunnies and Buttons? (may be good for a kids range)
Strawberry Stitches?
Willow Works?
Good luck. X

MissAdventure that made me chuckle trying to guess what she said - the mind boggles ๐Ÿ˜

JuneRose Mon 22-Jun-20 21:42:29

FlyingHandbag those are great ideas. Bunnies and Buttons and Strawberry Stitches are really clever.

Mary what a lovely idea for a business.

I like Cherrycezzy's suggestions, they have a contemporary ring to them. For example a baker in our area has called her business Cake For Breakfast. So:

Mary Makes Her Memories.
Memories I Make.

Good luck with your venture, will you be on Etsy?

I'm not sure about Etsy yet, I'll have to look into it.

JuneRose Mon 22-Jun-20 22:34:52

Good luck with your venture. I envy anyone who can sew.

I'm still trying to work it out hmm

I was going to say Meadowsweet then noticed Jane10's post from earlier suggesting that.
