And this is our story

Created by Caroline M England, Featherbed Tales was set up in 2020 to help children connect with absent loved ones and to share the joy of storytelling.

When a close friend of Featherbed's founder died in 2016 she left a little boy so young he might not remember his mother. She had, however, previously made a voice recording to welcome him into their family when he was adopted. At this point Caroline started to realise the importance of voice in creating bonds and memories. 

Not long afterwards, whilst standing in Coniston Water about to enter a swimming event, Caroline found herself next to an old friend from 25 years previously. Not recognising the wet-suited,  hat-wearing friend until she spoke, her voice immediately transported Caroline back to the fun times they had together as teenagers. These two events started a thought process which would lead to the development of Featherbed Tales.
