Hello all, I am Matt Slade, husband of Deborah who set up Saddle-Goose Designs. As many of you will know by now, in June of 2019, Debs was diagnosed with a very severe illness which has resulted in her having to give up work to concentrate on her health and well being.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all those those who have offered support and kindness during this difficult time. You know who you are and it really does means the world to both of us.
Debs made dice bags and dice trays to order and was able to provide a custom service to gamers around the world. She has managed to teach me how to use the embroidery machine but I have neither the time nor talent to master the art of constructing trays or dice bags. For the time being therefore, I am only able to offer the clothing embroidery service. Plans are afoot for an alternative dice tray design.
“Saddle-Goose” came from an old English name for a “fool” which Debs thought was appropriate! So there it is and thanks to the talented Martin Whitmore, the goose has started taking on his own identity. The goose has a few plans of his own but watch this space…..!
Debs has been fortunate to work with a number of great businesses, including TooFatLardies. The Pie and Pint logo was one of her first embroideries with and without names, quotes etc and I am very pleased to announce that we are able to produce official TooFatLardies merchandise in the form of polo shirts, hoodies etc. Thanks to Rich and Nick for all their ongoing support and encouragement.
Along with official merchandise, Debs has also had fun with kickstarters, club/group clothing and bags and the following are just some of the lovely people, businesses and groups she has worked with:
- Bad Squiddo Games
- Funky Skull Games
- Flags of War
- Oathsworn Miniatures
