About

Hey,
I am Louise and I created Knowle Craft at the end of last year, when my husband and I returned from Fuerteventura where we had been volunteering for a year.

I have the most amazing family, I inherited my love for art from my uncle who is an amazing artist. As for my love for all things crafty? that is purely down to my very talented mother! While we were still living in Fuerteventura, my mother-in-law very generously bought me a set of chameleon pens, as she knew I loved art. However, I honestly didn't think I would use them because I had no idea what to do with them. A few YouTube videos later, however, I decided to make some anniversary cards for my family. I sent them in the post and was thrilled to bits when they said how much they loved them. By this point I was addicted!

About 2 months after we returned to England my mother-in-law asked if I wanted to make some crafty things that she could sell to her friends at a craft party. I thought "why not? It seems like a bit of fun". Little did I know at the time that that was the start of Knowle Craft. I received a huge order for cards and handmade gifts which enabled me to get my first batch of cards printed.

I opened my Etsy shop and went to local craft markets and shops to spread the word and now I am enjoying the benefits of being my own boss.

People ask me what my favourite part of running Knowle Craft is. My answer... Creating! Those are the best days when I am able to let my creativity just go wild! I hope you enjoy the results.
