My name is Ami and I'm a Quilter, Textile Artist. I'm also the founder and owner of Simply Needlecraft Haberdashery & Sewing Studio.
Simply Needlecraft was set up in 2012 originally online but finally found a bricks and mortar outlet in 2013. I had originally set up as a haberdashery but found my passion when I started teaching. I ( and friends and family) converted the upstairs of the shop in to a beautiful sewing studio. That’s when the workshops began.
Workshops and classes are an important part of life and still continue in the Sewing Studio.
The adults workshops range from Knitting, Crochet through to sewing, quilting and textile arts. Workshops are available in the day or evening. Pop over to our online shop and have a browse of dates and prices.
The Sewing Studio is also well known for our children’s sewing bee. I teach children from the age of 8 to 16 years in small groups. These groups run throughout the week. All children learn the basics and work upwards. I’m extremely proud to say we have award winning quilts at the International Festival of Quilts 2017 in the primary and secondary group category.
In 2018 I took a break from the High Street to concentrate on the workshops and events but in January 2020 the Haberdashery will have a bricks and mortar home yet again.
I've joined forces with my partner to bring you the very quality fabrics, thread and yarns instore and online.
