"I was lucky enough to meet Joanna Miller at this year's Make Awards, where her business, Bespoke Verse, won Partner of the Year 2015.
As one of the judges, I couldn’t help but be impressed with how she’d not only grown her business but how she’d also uncovered a hidden army herself, within the poet community... bringing back this lost skill and turning their words into modern gifts.
As Joanna accepted her award, she recounted the story of how her business had started. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room! Nor was there here, when Harry gave a poem to Frank for his Birthday this year. It’s now an important addition to our collection of family keepsakes. We’re never too old to tell a parent what they mean to us and so this idea spans all ages of gift givers.
It was such a pleasure ordering something that could’ve been a complicated process, and yet was seamless!
