Hi! Welcome to Very Berry Handmade. Thanks so much for visiting!

Ali Burdon

Very Berry Handmade is mostly written by me, Ali, with occasional contributions from my other half, Sandy. Having lived in Sheffield, Cambridge, Liverpool and London, we’ve now pitched up in north Staffordshire in the UK, not a million miles from where we grew up. We have lovely twin sons who are home-educated, and we both work from home too.


Our family life is peaceful, but varied and fun. I do lots of sewing, crochet and baking, and these are the main themes here at Very Berry, but I also have a small business selling Liberty Tana Lawns – that you’ll find here at Very Berry Fabrics. You’ll also find us writing about our lovely pooch Barney, the natural world, our garden, and anything else that takes our fancy.
