If you have not yet told us how you will be celebrating, please email us to will@anything left-handed.co.uk so that we can add your details to our website list.

Even if it is a get together at home, we would love to know about it so please get in touch, and remember to download your free Left-Handers Day Posters from www.left-handersday.com/posters.html to really get the message across!!

Members exclusive offer: reserve your 2005 Left-Handers calendar / diary now!

We are delighted to make available for the first time a choice of 2005 calendars and diaries exclusively for Left-Handers!

  • Left-hander Elias Howe, who invented the sewing machine, put the needle on the left side of the machine where it remains today?
  • Lefty musician Jimi Hendrix taught himself how to play the guitar by flipping the right-handed guitar upside down rather than trying to re-string it left-handed?
