About Fibreandstitch

Sales 653
On Etsy since 2015

Hello there and thank you for stopping by.
I'm Sara, a designer/maker based in Hastings, East Sussex, U.K.
In 2015 I created my textile craft business after the completion of a B.A (Hons) Degree in Art and Design. Specializing in constructed textiles, I received a First Class Distinction and the seed for my fibre craft business was well and truly planted. My obsessions include a love of all things lace and Shabby chic and then combining these elements to create vintage inspired home decorations, accessories, giftware and bespoke bunting. Well, lace must be included very much everywhere!
Here you will find a full range of bespoke bunting with vintage, Shabby chic and rustic charm fit for any wedding, party or event. Alongside these, a full range of gifts decorated with an abundance of lace can be found. From embroidery hoop art and bauble ornaments to hanging hearts and hand poured soy wax candles, you will be sure to find a gift that suits the delicate vintage style.....
I am passionate to provide an amazing, first class service, and endeavor to give 100% customer satisfaction. Please do not hesitate to contact me for commission requests. You will not be disappointed. It's what I love to do best!...
I hope you enjoy all of the shop items and delight in looking around my world of Fibreandstitch.
Best wishes,
Sara.
