Introducing Crafty Trimmings

As several of the lovely sponsors of the Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew giveaway prizes are probably New to You businesses, I thought that it would be nice to give them an opportunity to introduce themselves.

This month's introduction is from Sarah, who gets to play with all sorts of wonderful haberdashery through her delightful online store, Crafty Trimmings

Crafty Trimmings 

 As well as the fun variegated bobble trim used on my Infinity Scarf last month, Sarah stocks a great range of ribbons, lace, trims and embellishments. 

1 Metre Grosgrain Polka Dot Spotty Ribbon 10mm - 35 COLOURS 

From spots

1 Metre Sparkly Double Circle Sequin Trim - 9mm - 4 COLOURS

To Sequins, Sarah has it covered! 

Red & White Pom Pom 5mm Ric Rac - per metre 

And if you can't decide between Ric-Rac or Pompom, why not have both in one trim :)

Enough of the eye-candy, here's how Sarah came to be running Crafty Trimmings.

"I'm a lover of all things crafty and have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I was taught to knit by my granny at a very young age and learnt to sew from my mum who is a professional dressmaker. I can remember designing and making dolls clothes on one of those tiny Singer manual sewing machines which I still have!  

 When I can find the time I enjoy sewing, bag making, patchwork, crazy quilting, knitting, felting, cross stitch, jewellery making, silk and glass painting.  And of course my new full time hobby – sourcing and buying fabulous trimmings and embellishments for my business Crafty Trimmings which I started in 2011 when I decided to clear out my sewing room and sell the surplus on eBay. 

 I enjoyed selling so much I opened an eBay shop and turned my sewing room into a stock room!  In 2014 I decided to launch my own website which stocks a lovely selection of lace trim and motifs, fancy trimmings and braids, ribbons, bias binding and embellishments. 

 Shipping is free on all orders over £10 and I also run a loyalty scheme to reward repeat customers."

So, there you have it, next time someone questions your stash, just tell them you are building up stock :)


  1. Hi Fiona, Do you have a link to your shop on your blog or am I just being stupid????? Probably the latter. I'm still a bit dazed and confused after spending last week up in Manchester with Mum and Dad. Good luck with the new venture. I've a huge stockpile but there is always room for more.

  2. Gorgeous trimmings, may have to get some of these for my stash!

  3. Whose life wouldn't be brightened with ric rac pompom trim? It's adorable --- and so are the polka dot ribbons - I've been slowly collecting as many pokie colours as I can find - I love it :)

  4. Lovely trims... I have fallen in love with Crafty Trimmings' beaded trim. They are so pretty! The site is very easy to use and I really like the graphics! I'm definitely going to have to build up on this kind of "stock"!

  5. I have never seen pom pom ric rac before. Love it!!! Ha, ha... no one questions my stash.
