Journey of a Pioneering Story Tailor

Preserving Memories, Bringing Healing and Comfort to Bereaved Children Through Stories

This Story Tailor designs watercolour illustrations not clothes, stitching together words and ideas, not pieces of material.

Like the popular idea of memory boxes but in the unique form of a fictional literature legacy.

The most creative, suitable and desirable way to help your child deal with their grief

Do you worry about how quickly their memories of a loved one might fade? Here at Tailored Yarn our mission is to bestow a gift of a specially designed book to every child facing grief or loss of a significant person in their life. Each fictional story will be overflowing with intimate details about family memories, achievements, quirky habits, hopes, dreams and parental wisdom.
