We love Hannah and Rosie from The New Craft House – not only are they lovely people and very talented makers but they are paving the way for crafts businesses that do things exactly how they want.
We can’t help but be a tad envious of these two who live and love their very successful business, especially as they do it side by side as best friends since school. The way that they have created their work to fit in with their lifestyles and have chosen their own pace of working is incredibly refreshing and inspiring as are all the things they do.
We hear all about this, how they met, started sewing, their day to day and about how they both live on boats… could these two get any cooler?! When they left Megan and I both said ‘ I want to be them’ and we have a feeling you will too.
So grab a cuppa and join us for a lovely chat about doing business your way!
This episode is sponsored by Pfaff who make amazing sewing machines for all styles. There are overlockers, coverstitch machines and embroidery machines for beginners to keen sewers. We both love Pfaff machines and couldn’t recommend them enough – they sew through any fabric like it’s quilting cotton, that’ll be down to the IDT, the integrated walking-foot.
