Delicious Donuts

Delicious Donuts From The Bellwether

It’s been a very busy few weeks here at The Bellwether HQ – Christmas is already in full swing! I’ve still found some time to get some new products uploaded, including this delicious donutty badge. Grab yours here.

This week has been a full one of shop updates, product photography and um, yeah, reopening my Etsy shop after a very, very long battle with myself. I still have some issues with Etsy but even I can grudgingly acknowledge that things have changed a lot in recent years.

It’s been quite the wrestle but as another certain website I sell on is determined to drum out small businesses and have everything looking like a John fucking Lewis advert, then I’m broadening my horizons. I don’t mind if you judge me.

It’s actually kinda invigorating to be returning/approaching a new channel. And revising things and making preparations. I’ve even booked up for three markets before Christmas – more news on that and on the exhibition I’m taking part in this month soon!

I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at www.antibullshitleague.com. I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
