Gill Fone and Milly
Gill, with Milly

I’m Gill Fone, owner of Gill-I-Am.

I have worked for over 30 years at exhibitions all over the UK.

Originally selling picture frames under the banner of The Frame Workshop I then diversified into the Craft Industry with a product called Friendly Plastic and trading as Molten Designs.

As with all things involving Craft you cannot avoid experimenting with other materials so that led me down the path of Mixed Media and then Needlefelting.

I now trade under the name of Gill-I-Am as it gives me the flexibility to follow different paths as I experiment with crafts and effects.

Most exciting is the new weaving loom which I have just added to my range – what a fabulous way to achieve different textures. I just love playing with different colours and textures!

As well as attending various exhibitions up and down the country I do of course also trade on the internet on this website. We pride ourselves on being a small business that cares about the service we give to our customers.

We try to despatch all orders on the day they are received, or next day at the latest, and if there is a problem we will let you know immediately.

My right hand person is Christel who has worked for me for over 15 years – she knows as much about the business as I do!

You don’t have to worry about your order being despatched if I am at an exhibition because Christel is here. By the way, she is also responsible for Milly (my Birman cat) when I am away – both feeding and cuddling!

We are always here to help with advice and to answer your questions and of course I would love to see you if you come to any of the exhibitions – and a cup of tea is always welcome when I am on the stand!
