I started the company in 2007 and have loved to see it grow. Crafting began as a passion for me and has become my lifestyle. I've always strongly believed in providing a flexible, affordable, fun service for families. We've enjoyed being a place where anyone can pop in, relax, feel at home and just enjoy crafting.
I oversee all aspects of the business and really love implementing new ideas and projects. I work closely with other local businesses and my current project is to promote BellaCrafts across the south coast, spreading our message of family fun and crafting through local carehomes, schools, events and county shows. I'm also a board member of the AFCI so I'm in contact with lots of other craft retailers nationally and help to support through annual events such as The One BIG Show. See more info on our AFCI page.
My favourite craft is Mixed Media; I've been to workshops up and down the country, really what could be better than an afternoon spent with paint!
My favourite day to work is Friday as there is always such a lovely buzz before a weekend of parties, plus we usually have some lovely, local crafters in creating their own projects.
