John Craven thrilled with his Pocket Perch!
August 15-18 saw Jacwicks Designs at BBC Countryfile Live at Castle Howard.
WOW what a show!
There was so much to see and do 4 days just didn't seem enough.
The highlight for me was to meet national treasure and stalwart of Countryfile, John Craven. I presented him with a Pocket Perch to take with him on filming assignments out in the cold wet countryside. John was so delighted with the Perch, he went on the main stage at the event to tell the Countryfile Live audience how he would now be able to keep his bottom dry when out and about!
Thank you to all the Jacwicks customers, and attendees who just stopped for a chat, it was lovely to speak to you.
Looking forward to next year, see you there!

Here at Jacwicks HQ we are delighted and thrilled to receive a glowing review from Country Walking Magazine which declares the Pocket perch a classy product!
Up against two competitors in the sit mat market the Pocket Perch came out on top. The Pocket Perch is loved by the tester for its versatility for being able to be used out and about and in the home. Use it out and about on a walk, or during the week at work or home to enjoy an alfresco lunch.
The Pocket Perch is larger than its competitors but also rolls up very quickly to pop back in a bag or pocket, or attach to a strap on belts or bags. The tester also points out the Pocket Perches unique feature of being able to roll either way so if the waterproof side gets damp you can roll it on the inside so your bag or pocket stays dry.
But dont just take my word for it read the full review below and shop the Pocket Perch range by clicking here

See you there!
In January 2019, I became a member of the inaugural cohort for the Durham City Incubator. 6 months of intense business advice and tuition, 1-2-1 support and access to finance has been invaluable. Being included with 6 inspirational entrepreneurial businesses has been a pleasure and privilege, the support and encouragement has been invaluable.

Delighted to announce the Pocket Perch has been included in the Spring Issue of Country Walking magazine!
It's a great fit with the product, as I use mine when out and about taking part in the Country Walking magazine's, Walk 1000 Mile Challenge.
I still have a long way to go with my mileage, completed 67 miles so far, I just have to work out how to sew and walk at the same time.
