After a very event filled 2019, what is in store for Jacwicks in 2020?
January is a time to reflect on the past year and take a look at where to concentrate the business this year? A HUGE question! I’ve had some amazing adventures in the past year with a whole host of shows and fairs to exhibit at and brilliant publicity in Country Walking magazine. New products launched and competitions entered. Celebrate these on the Lets Celebrate page of the website, small wins need to be celebrated!
Looking at 2020 I am taking Jacwicks on the road again, this time both locally and further afield including an exciting show at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire. More to be announced soon. It was great to meet the lovely customers at the shows and I look forward to meeting more this year.
One thing I did start in 21019 was the Walk a 1000 mile challenge by Country Walking magazine, total for 2019 was 667, so not quite there but over half way, time to sign up for 1000 mile 2020.
The unusually mild January has been great for getting out and about so make the most of it and don’t forget to take a moment to enjoy a beautiful view. Happy Perching.
The final date for ordering to ensure your purchase arrives before Christmas is:
Wednesday 18 December 2019
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Jacwicks customers, happy perching!
Fabwrap by Jacwicks
Beautiful, reusable, sustainable, gift wrapping.
Jacwicks Designs is pleased to announce the launch of Fabwrap a new form of beautiful sustainable gift wrapping, that’s environmentally friendly and reduces landfill waste. Made from luxury fabrics in a range of colours, Fabwrap is the easy way to make your gifts look fabulous in no time, for years to come.
The art of wrapping gifts in fabric has been around for hundreds of years, Fabwrap is based on the Japanese practice of Furoshiki. With the increasing need to reduce waste and find an environmentally friendly way to live, Fabwrap can be reused again and again and still look amazing. Forget messy sticky tape and mounds of wasted paper, just gather the fabric, tie a knot, add ribbons and decorations, then sit back and admire your gorgeously wrapped gifts.
Each gift can be tied with a knot, which makes the unwrapping experience a gentle, easy process with that extra touch of luxury. No messy mounds of waste to go to landfill, just fold and reuse, pass on, or keep.
Available in three sizes: small, medium and large, in a range of colours and styles, you can mix and match, or theme for a special occasion.
Get fabulous results every time!
Check out the range today.

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
