"I've been sewing since my foot was able to hit the peddle!" ........ From the second school was over i set up my own dress making classes to share my knowledge with other people. My passion and drive then led me to start my own Fabrics Business which i've been in for the last 15 years.

Our aim at The Craft & Sewing Basket is to provide you with beautiful and original fabrics and the best craft products to help you create amazing things!
"I love nothing more than visualising what I can make from a fabric, and actually seeing the finished product!"

We hope The Craft & Sewing Basket will be the place for you to find what you need. If you have any questions contact us anytime we are always happy to help you.
