It began in Los Angeles, 1985... Meredithe (who's childhood nickname was Meri Meri) sitting at her kitchen table... some scissors and pens, a big pot of glitter. Her first cards were made that way. The magic began. Local stationery stores in Los Angeles loved those cards and asked for more. One kitchen table and one pair of scissors wasn't enough. She needed lots of kitchen tables and an enormous pot of glitter. Then in 1987, she presented her little range of handmade cards at the National Stationery Show in New York. The response was phenomenal. Pretty soon there were major stores like Bergdorf Goodman taking on her range for their Christmas season. More kitchen tables and great big sacks of glitter. The company grew from that little network of Mums working from home from Meredithe's designs and direction. How it is now. They don't design on kitchen tables anymore. They now work in studios in a 400 year old building, overlooking an ancient churchyard in a little town called Cheltenham, one hour west of London.
