Enid told me that she was working at Ridgway Potteries at the time and that was just 1 of 15 designs that she was required to produce each week. Her (now) husband Bob was involved in the printing side of the pattern. Lining the shelves of Woolworths, â€˜Homemakerâ€™ was accessible and affordable home ware, and after the war I expect that some pattern and lively charecter was a refreshing change for young consumers of that time.
Enid also told me that production started in 1956 and it wasnâ€™t until the following year that it wasnâ€™t actually available to buy, making 2007 the 50th Anniversay of Homemaker. Now letâ€™s see, Yoyo might have a commemorative design in the pipelineâ€¦….we can let you know!.
