Say hello!

In January, after much deliberation, a new (trial) section was added to my sidebar in order to give  crafty bloggers and 'makers' the opportunity to share their links with the lovely readers that visit me each month - yes, that's you! My aim is to populate that space with blogs or sellers you will be interested in visiting and I've invited the current 'Sponsors' to say hello to you and to tell you a little bit about themselves.

littlebobbins is an online shop full of pretty things, all designed and handmade by me, Dani. With my creations I aim to make your everyday life a little more cheerful. You will find all sorts of textile goodies from appliquéd pencil cases to colourful bunting and lots more in between. All made with quality materials and a meticulous attention to detail. littlebobbins is the perfect place for one of a kind, whimsical gifts, or perhaps a treat for yourself. 

My passion for handmade started over a decade ago when I had the flu and asked my mum to teach me to embroider. She did, and since then I have experimented with lots of different crafts, studied Art at college, Textiles at University and now I spend lots of my time here, on this swively chair with my two furry assistants trying to craft a handmade business and learning lots along the way. It would be lovely to see you at littlebobbins, we look forward to your visit :)
You can also get a peek behind the scenes at Dani's blog, Twitter feed & on Instagram.

Hello. I'm Tanya aka A Yarn Loving Mama & I'm passionate about yarn and colour. I mostly spend my days being a Mama, spinner, knitter, crocheter, and fledgling knitwear designer. Having my own Etsy shop, I sell an ever-growing range of hand-crafted drop spindles, spinning kits (with matching A Stash Addict fiber), as well as crochet hooks, stitch markers, handspun yarn and other beautiful things. I am in the process of filming video tutorials - assisting my spindle customers and anyone else who's interested in learning how to spin yarn on a drop spindle. And any free time in between I blog about my exploits. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting :)

Hi! I'm Marinke but you can call me Wink. I blog several times a week over at where I share my love for crochet & color, and more! You may know me from the crochet tutorials I write for my own blog and Crafttuts+, but I'm mostly known for my weekly crochet mandalas. I have met a lot of lovely people since I started blogging and it is true what they say; bloggy friends are the best friends! has about 50,000 hits a month, readers from all over the globe, and a very active Facebook page with 1700+ fans!
Visit Wink on her Blog, Facebook & Pinterest.

I'm Sarah, a huge knitting fan and general arts & crafts lover. My background is in Silversmithing and Jewellery making - wedding rings, tiaras and bridal jewellery, which I made alongside my teaching career. After having two children I had stopped teaching and was looking for something I could do to contribute to the family funds.

I had made stitch markers for friends, and after a trip to a local bead shop and a few days designing and making I took a little box of goodies to show my knitting group. They loved them and were convinced I could sell them and they also came up with the name fripperiesnbibelots. I set up the shop in July 2009 and I now have lots of lovely loyal customers. My popular ringOs are, by far, my best seller and I love making them. I have a core line of dangly stitch markers and other knitting accessories and I run a Mystery Marker Club and a mystery Club ringO every few months.

Hi, I'm Danielle, the person behind A Stash Addict. I started dyeing my own yarn in 2011, not just because I wanted to create something individual and unique, but because I wanted to connect and really enjoy the whole process of knitting a project. 

All of my collections have a whimsical/fantasy theme, this is partly because I am believer in creating your own magic and partly because I wanted each stitch to engage the user and get them really excited about the project they are planning to making instead of focusing on the finished object, after all they say 'Life is about the journey, not the destination', so take time and really enjoy each and every stitch and watch the magic in my colours unfold before your very eyes!
You can connect with Danielle at her website, on Facebook and on Instagram.
