Who Am i?

Yours Occasionally was founded by me, Fred Foster,  in April 2011 when, after years of making bespoke Christmas cards to sell for charity and wedding stationery for friends, I decided I'd like to try it as a career. I am proud to say that my business has flourished, and I have won ten awards over the ten years Yours Occasionally has been in business.

I introduced Needle & Fred in January 2021, combining the businesses are there are overlaps in the stationery category, it’s also a great way to have everything I do in one place.  If you’re looking for a bespoke greeting card, why not add a bespoke gift to the basket as well.  There’s nothing better than handmade gifts, especially when they’ve been custom made for someone. Needle & Fred was started in 2017 when I found something else I love doing.  Love what you do and do what you love!

how i work?

You can order your stationery online through the website, we will then contact you to ensure we have all the correct details to make your stationery shine. There are items to choose from, you just need to add them to the basket as you go along. If you do not wish to pay via PayPal or you would like customisation that isn't listed on the website, please contact us and we can take your order via email and issue you with a paper invoice with other ways to pay available. We also offer a fully bespoke service where we will design something completely different just for you. Contact Us for more information.

Table Number Cards

Yours Occasionally also designs and makes stationery for all occasions, including, but not limited to, Christenings, Funerals, Baby Showers, Birthday Parties, Occasion Parties, Anniversaries, Charity Events and Corporate Events.  

If you are ordering crochet items, add the item to the basket and checkout.  If you have ordered customisation I will contact you to discuss your needs.  Please note due the nature of the product being made to order, please allow at least two to three weeks for the item to be made.

"Brilliant and unique work. Someone who cares about the things they make and their clients needs."
