I own a small shop in Swadlincote town centre called Simply Needlecraft Haberdashery – http://www.facebook.com/simplyneedlecraft and I am also a textile artist.
I started on a market stall in October 2013 and the response I had was overwhelming. So in January I took the step to open a shop in the High Street.
I find crafts and sewing help tremendously with the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. I’m also going to try my hand at other crafts like basket weaving, mosiacs and pottery in the future.
I stock fabrics, yarns, buttons, ribbon, lace, zips, pins and needles, felts, cross stitch and tapestry and everything haberdashery related. The range of products we stock is growing all the time 🙂
I still attend craft events around Derbyshire.
