My name is Sara and I write Crafts of Texture. The message is simple… I aim to share my passion for wool to help revive traditional crafts, inspiring you to try something new.
Aside from discussing happenings here at Sara's Texture Crafts (my wool business), I also aim to cover varying topics of personal, business and general craft interest, with a woolly twist. I'll be blogging at a rate of 70% lifestyle/crafts and 30% business. You can find a list of key topics below, which is by no means exhaustive but generally accurate.
- Craft Business
- Craft Tutorials
- Craft News (new products and wool news)
- Indie Picks (my favourite independent crafters)
- Reviews (products, books, resources and websites)
- Works in Progress (my wool crafts)
- Customer photos (what customers are making with my wool)
- Sara’s HQ Diary (what’s happening behind the scenes or show reviews)
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 ingenious behind fabric constructions and fibre choice. When I later went freelance and started Sara's Texture Crafts I seemed drawn to wool in particular.
