Who Does What

We're proud of our team here at Poppy Treffry, everyone pulls together and really cares about what we do, meaning everybody will go the extra mile to make sure you, our customer, are happy.  And happily, we all have a lot of fun along the way!


Poppy Treffry

Heading up the team is, of course, Poppy...

Poppy is in charge of everything! But specialises in designing our great ranges and developing our business. She's also pretty good at making tea and sweeping the floor! Takes her tea: milk and no sugar.


Sara from Team Treffry

Next to our production and wholesale manager next, say hello to Sara...

Sara is generally the voice on the other end of the phone and makes sure everyone gets what they need.  She is in charge of the studio stitching team and looks after our wholesale customers. Sara loves to ride her bike and her normal lunch is a potato and fizzy hummus, yum! Takes her tea: black and no sugar.


Tamsin from team Treffry

Also in the studio we have Tamsin, in charge of packing up all your lovely orders and answering any queries you might have...

Tamsin enjoys making everything look pretty and looks after you when you order on our website. She spends most afternoons chasing her young son around the garden and looking for tractors! Takes her tea: black coffee every time!


Liz from Poppy Treffry

This is Liz - our St Ives shop manager, assistant marketing person and chief in-house bag maker in our studio.

When she's not busy in the shop or helping Poppy with a bit of marketing, Liz is a wonder at working her way speedily through ambitious stitching lists. She spins a good yarn (usually involving her chickens) whilst she sews and is a dab hand at sewing-related problem solving! Enjoys a spot of Gig Rowing and going out on bike rides with friends. Takes her tea: black with no sugar.


Ruth from Team Treffry

Ruth is queen of cutting and sewing and joined us in 2017. 

Ruth is the tallest member of the team and also, shock and indeed horror, doesn't really drink tea - although it is one less cuppa we need to make! She's in charge of cutting out pieces for the Poppy Treffry range and also helping out in bag factory with stitching and bag prep.


Gilly from Team Treffry

The other's you might see more of are our shop team, starting with Gilly

Gilly is our stalwart shop worker, always knowing when we're about to run out of tea towels. She's generally the reason you can find what you're looking for in our shop! Takes her tea: er, coffee thank you very much!


Chloe from Team Treffry

Also in the shop is Chloe

Chloe is our Saturday shop star. She's at college, plays netball for Penzance, and spends her free time walking on the beach and drawing (not always at the same time)...  Chloe also works in the studio making up the badges and cutting all the applique pieces. Takes her tea: milk and no sugar.


Louisa from Team Treffry

And then Louisa...

Louisa is a student at Bath University studying textiles.  When she's not busy finding different ways to melt plastic onto fabrics, she works for us in the shop and also comes to sew for us in the studio when we have hundreds of Betty's Calendars to make!  Takes her tea: Milk no sugar.


And now to those you might not see so often but who are vital to our continued success.... 

Briony from Team Treffry

Firsty, the longest standing team member is Briony...

Briony is our stitcher extraordinaire. She makes lots of our lovely products such as our stitched pictures and badges, so much so that she's good friends with her osteopath! She looks small and cute but she's a very big fan of loud heavy metal! Takes her tea: milk and no sugar


Lucy from Team Treffry

And then we have the rest of our lovely stitchers...

Lucy creates our lovely embroidered make up bags, and does it very beautifully. She also stitches up a lot of our big and small useful purses and even some of the washbags too, phew we do keep her busy!


Lucy from Team Treffry

Our next splendid stitcher is Jo...

Jo is in charge of phone cosies and does a brilliant job of keeping them all as close to the same size as we've ever seen! Jo is partial to a dip in the ocean all year round and is a talented artist in her own right.


Nancy of Team Treffry

Nancy is our super purse and pencil case stitcher...

Nancy is an in-demand self employed stitcher and so we are very lucky to have her on the team. She is also a wizz at sewing up blinds and bee-keeping outfits! Takes her tea: milk, one sugar Tah!
