Thank you for popping in and taking the time to look around my Fibre Deli. I am honoured that you have chosen to spend your valuable time here. And as a way of thanks I have written a little bit about me and my shop… so that you can get a taste of the person behind the computer! If you have any questions just email… I am always here to help.
What can I say; I’m a fibre addict… I am wool obsessed and can often be found in a woolly trance playing with fibre and yarn!
So where did my obsession with wool really start? Well I trained in fashion and worked as a Fashion and Textile Designer for a few British Fashion Designers and larger brands... when I visited factories I was always taken with the complexity and ingenuity behind fabric constructions and fibre choice. When I later became a freelance consultant and started Sara's Texture Crafts as a side-line I seemed drawn to wool in particular.
Since then I have taken to many wool crafts felt making, embellishing (textile surface decoration), weaving, crochet and in particular spinning and knitting. I have also had the pleasure of meeting many fellow fibre addicts who have been so free to share their craft passions and knowledge… I think that’s why I love my job so much… you meet the most fabulous people!
As Sara’s Texture Crafts grew I felt compelled to give back, not only in high quality product, but also in learning and so my work became as much about beautiful product as it did about sharing and inspiring customers on how to use it.
I always strive to source the very best of products to sell and am continuously looking for new suppliers and methods to be able to bring my ideas to you. Currently I work with a selection of UK Farmers (locally where possible), crafts people and suppliers as well as a few overseas brands for the bigger pieces of equipment, to be able to do this. I also create a proportion of the products myself, based on my experience with fibres, yarn and various wool crafts.
If you have any questions regarding my products, or services please get in touch.
