SPOTLIGHT ON A CAP BUSINESS CLUB MEMBER.
YOUR NAME? - Dee Savickas
NAME OF YOUR BUSINESS? - DeeZynes Embroidery & Printing
WEBSITE ADDRESS? – www.deezynes.net
WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE YOUR CURRENT BUSINESS? – Publican
WHAT MADE YOU START YOUR CURRENT BUSINESS? - Lifelong fascination with fabrics, colours and design – DeeZynes is just entering it’s 10th year
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES? - Carriage Driving and day to day equine care.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE? - Not much of a Cinema go-er but I have watched the Great Gatsby many, many times since my teens. More recently, the same can be said for Mama Mia - each time our grandchildren come for a sleep over!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MEAL? - Sea Bass always attracts my attention on any menu … as does Salmon
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE UK HOLIDAY DESTINATION? - Where ever we went last, so North Wales.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION ABROAD? - Not really holiday folk but we did enjoy Cyprus and we also love the Greek Islands
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TV PROGRAMME? - I don’t think I have a favourite … I prefer the past for ‘entertainment’ I was a huge Downton fan, Call the Midwife, period dramas, ect. I will confess to recording Eastenders in recent months and I love Strictly during the winter months.
YOUR FAVOURITE SONG? – so many songs hold so many memories and I am dreadful at quoting titles and or artists. Admission to this question? My first thought was Night Riders in the Sky sung by echoBANDITS of course, then there’s the one that we shout “2-3-4” in the gap is fun too!!
WHAT DO YOU MOST ENJOY ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS? - Variety. Being different to the other embroiderers, not only in this area but particularly on-line.
IF YOU HAD A MAGIC WAND WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS? Everyone paid when they said they would!
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS TIME? Or sooner for the right money!
DeeZynes Embroidery & Printing SOLD to someone who could take it to the next level and I would take great pride in their success.
My personal intention is to concentrate on my Carriage Driving and helping others into the sport.
DO YOU HAVE ANY USEFUL TIPS OR IDEAS THAT YOU COULD SHARE WITH THE OTHER CAP MEMBERS? - Please ‘use’ other members knowledge. Respect the ‘Givers Gain’ rule, it really does work and value the One 2 One meetings, you’ll understand so much more from each other and gain some true friendships in to the bargain! My social life has really turned around with CAP member introductions … but that’s another story for another day!
HOW HAS CAP BUSINESS CLUBS HELPED YOU IN YOUR BUSINESS? - I started attending CAP on week 2 (or 3?) when it was just a Monday morning club, I moved to a Tuesday evening 2 years ago.
I‘ve met some wonderful people over the years, with them I have grown in knowledge and my business has flourished as a direct result of CAP members past and present, with many of them come their contacts too.
Word of mouth is by far the best (and cheapest!) way forward.
Repeat business is the biggest compliment.
Thank You CAP – long may you continue.
Thank you Dee for spending some time answering these questions

I love the jacket, so much, it's fabulous. Just posted the following for others Hello everyone hope you don't mind me sharing this. I've recently just had this jacket completed and had many hoodies done For excellent quality and service contact Dee . - Jess D
I know I've posted a previous glowing review for Dee, but once again she has come up trumps, and it would be remiss of me not to let other members know. She really is a top class lady, and this week has fulfilled another order exactly as promised - on time and at a very attractive price for quality garments. If you need promotional clothing in the Forest of Dean, Dee's your first stop! - Michael G
I got in contact with Deezynes via Forest Traders to provide me with personalised work wear for my pet sitting business.Dee is a lovely lady providing an excellent service from first point of contact to the finished item. The quality of work is brilliant and feel proud to wear a design that supports a local business. - Lisa M
When I recently asked Dee to Embroider up some aprons for my workshops, I supplied her with the text, not expecting the wording to be done in the actual way I designed it on my iPad. She came back to me very quickly with the design, using the same handwritten font I had used, and I absolutely love it! Perfect job, I highly recommend Dee's work, which is also great value for money. - Karin W
I have used Deezynes for all my workwear needs since I started up my pet sitting business here in the Forest of Dean and will continue to do so. Dee provides a friendly first class all round service to meet individual needs with excellent results and am always pleased with the finishing garments resulting in positive comments from clients. - Lisa Morris
“Apart from the obvious embroidery that Dee does she also offers a service of embroidering names in clothing for people who are going into or who are in a care home. Recently my mother had to go into a care home and I needed to have her clothing marked accordingly. Dee mentioned that she did not do name labels but she was able to recommend a company that did do so and she even suggested the best type of labels that the company produced. My mother has lost a lot of weight and, amongst other things, I had to replace her knickers. So I handed the new ones to Dee and she embroidered my mother’s name on them and she went to the trouble of ensuring that the embroidery thread, that she used, matched or co-ordinated with each pair. At the time my mother was living in South Lincolnshire and Dee even posted the items to her. To say that my mother was impressed is an understatement - she thought what Dee had done was fantastic. It is such attention to detail that makes Dee’s work special. So thank you to Dee for the recommendation and for the work that she has done. I certainly know where there is one very happy elderly lady who has said that “no-one else has any knickers like hers so they won’t get lost.” - Susan P
Dee is a pleasure to work with and produces a high quality product. I would have no hesitation recommending to anyone, especially those requiring work related clothing for a smart, professional or practical appearance. Paul J.
Dee does quite fabulous embroidery, very creative, warm friendly and helpful. - Pauline M
I had seen Dees work and liked her style and quality so asked her to embroider my logo onto a t shirt and sweat shirt. She has a good selection of clothing to choose from and was able to transfer my logo over from a jpeg image. I was really pleased with the result and she was kind enough to deliver them to. I would recommend her for work and friendly accommodating service and will definitely be using her services again. Thank you - Sarah T
