Sarah moved to Bagni di Lucca a few years ago after finding a gorgeous house in Pieve di Monti di Villa. She has made a new life for herself in the village.
In her previous life she was a teacher, but always had a love of sewing. She learned from her mother and it was an enjoyable hobby. Now she has taken the big step of setting up her own business, making and selling children’s clothing.
Her label is Lulu and Bertie and she makes colourful clothes in whimsical prints for boys and girls. She is also working on some beautiful patchwork quilts for cots.
I went to her workroom on one level of her house to see her in action and to show you some of her work.
The clothes are available on line…check out her website. http://www.luluandbertie.com
Sarah will also have a space at the Chestnut Festival in the park beside Villa Fiori this Sunday (weather permitting). Say hello to her and take a look at her fun childrens’ clothes.
Clever lady! I hope she does well.
It is good to see enterprising people doing well.
Yay! I’ve just booked my flights for Italy. Venice (and probably Florence), here I come.
What a talented lady! Ciao Sarah!
I’m sure Sarah’s new business will be a success.
I loved her sewings, she is very talented lady. Thank you dear Debra, Love, nia
Children would love to wear her bright and happy clothes.
This is the type of initiatives which are needed. I wish Sarah all the best and I will certainly order something for our Octavia. Love that patchwork quilt for a cot!
You can see her things when you come in spring.
Lovely bright colours…..very child friendly.
I hope Sarah does very well.
Talk about following your dreams, the clothes are delightful, and Sarah deserves to be a success!
It is very brave starting a new venture. I hope it goes well.

How wonderful. I will look to meet Sarah in Pieve when I get back there. Love her work and can’t wait to bring home some unique items for my grandchildren.
For you, Sarah is a local.
