About

Spreading the love of craft one kit at a time.

Vera and Bess were my grandmothers, both fondly known as Nan, both strong women who loved to make. I grew up wearing clothes made from recycled adult's dresses and had a dolls house with furniture that Vera made from matchboxes and fabric scraps. The purple velour armchair was amazing! ( It was the '70s, after all.) Bess was a patchworker and loved to crochet. With a mum who knits and sews and a quilting aunt, I was always going to be crafty and I have yet to meet a craft I don't like.

I have a head full of designs and ideas and craft kits are the perfect way to get those ideas out into the world. I am constantly working on new patterns and cannot go anywhere without a notebook to jot them down.

Vera and Bess, this shop, is my chance to share all the knowledge, skills and love, a place to honour the practice passed on from generation to generation and add some of my own to give to my children. I hope you love what you find here as much as I love making it.
