Who am I and what is The Handmade Craft Company...?
"My name is Emma, I live in Berkshire, UK with my very supportive (and patient) husband, we have 2 fabulous grown up sons.
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. Always trying out something new, experimenting with new ideas. I love it and live for it!
I have created and sold crafts to family and friends and at local craft fairs for many years. In April 2015 I decided to make what I was doing official and launched The Handmade Craft Company as a work from home business.
My dream has always been to one day own my own cafe and craft shop.
In May 2016 my dream began to come true. I was given information of a small unit that had become available at a local craft village. I took a look, spent a few days adding up all the numbers, mulling it over with family and friends and in the end decided that you only live once and you only live to regret the chances you didn't take.
So....i took the leap and openend my own shop and after just 3 months of opening I expanded into a larger premises!!
Sadly this year (2021) I have had to make the very tough decision to not re open after lock down on 12th April. This is due to personal circumstances and the need to concentrate all of my time and efforts elsewhere at the moment.
I am hoping to be able to do regular craft markets and pop up shops and my online shop will remain open.
All of my crafters that were in the shop with me are still trading so please do get in touch if you'd like the details for any of them
I'd like to give a huge thank you to all of my lovely customers and hope to see you again in the future and welcome your support with the online shop.
My Instagram and Facebook pages have information about new and upcoming stock as well as lots of crafty chatter, they are updated on a regular basis so you can stay informed of what is going on.
