map-pin Nottingham, United Kingdom

I'm a compulsive crafter! After 9yrs of making decorative candles for my own business, I'm now leaving that behind me and embarking on other crafts to fill my time. My other crafts include (but are absolutely not limited to): box-making & decorating (as giftboxes), knitting (which I'm returning to after a 35yr break), sewing, calligraphy. When I have a little more time & space I want to do some/more silk-painting, textile art. I'm kind-of trying to learn to crochet, and also learning to weave and do needle-felting. But there may be other crafts out there that have yet to make an appearance in my life!

By the way, if anyone in the UK likes candles/home fragrance, please go find SmoulderingWicksStockClearance in Fb groups. As there's still 'quite a bit' of candling & accessories taking up what could be valuable yarn-stash space!! :D
