Introducing Pocket and Pin

We have lined up a great selection of generous sponsors for the Ho, Ho, Ho and on We Sew Link Party again this year, but some of them might not be that familiar to you so I thought it would be nice to give them a chance to introduce themselves.

First up is this month's giveaway sponsor the lovely Sarah from Pocket and Pin

who has donated this great Christmas Felt Bundle.

To be in with a chance of winning link up your Christmas and Holiday makes here

As well as lovely felt bundles, Pocket and Pin carries a great range of ribbons and trims and the sweetest little embroidery hoops for brooches and necklaces I have ever seen, but enough of that here is Sarah's story.

"At Pocket&Pin you will find the prettiest supplies for your crafts. Our (I say 'our' it's just little old me) aim is to find the best quality trims, ribbons, felt, fabric and buttons we can that will add the perfect touch to your handmade creations. 
I am an avid crafter myself and I enjoy nothing more than sitting down with my sewing machine or knitting machine and getting lost in a project! (when my kiddo's let me that is!)
I studied Textiles & Surface Design at university and went on to be a Freelance Knitwear Designer, selling designs to various companies/designers in London, Paris and New York. I later fell into buying and gained some valuable experience from the opposite side of the business. Pocket&Pin finally became a reality after my two boys were born. I returned to work part-time but obviously I was craving more time with them and I had a desire to return to my textile background, this led me to launch Pocket&Pin.
I love sourcing gorgeous trims, ribbon, lace, fabrics and yarns, both new and vintage. I hope through my enthusiasm I can inspire my customers to get excited about sewing and working on their own home crafts. There is nothing more satisfying to me than creating bespoke 'not available anywhere else' items that suit me and my home perfectly.
We've just launched the #habdash box. A monthly craft supplies subscription delivered to your doormat at the beginning of each month. This is the next big venture for Pocket & Pin and it is proving very popular. February's box sold out in an hour!
There is also a forever long list of things i would like to do and products i would like to stock and a little bit at a time we will get there!"

We can all relate to that :)
