Eleanor – Queen of Pintuck!


Eleanor is the third member of our Agency Life Team here at newroomsonline.

She always makes me laugh and hides her light under a bushel…..a little questioning of her own writing skills at first, it was a real pleasure to read her rewrites of my product content.

She has a talent with words that I hope to put to good effect as the project progresses…..it’s interesting how she immediately challenged the way I have written things myself – which is both daring (for someone who says she isn’t) and refreshing for me. It’s making me see my own work in a new light and I am already working on a change in the style of my own product content as a result!

Hey, who’s doing the knowledge sharing here?

Eleanor is championing Pintuck designs, a retro range using a combination of wartime slogans and vintage style patterns to create a lovely selection of mugs, tea towels and assorted kitchen linens.
