Spotlighting Sara's Texture Crafts


Hi Everyone,

I want to introduce you to Sara from Sara's Texture Crafts, the home of handcrafted gifts, crafty kits and equipment. Sara first started crafting as a child making doll clothes. Later she began making custom clothing and jewelry which she sold to friends and family.

After graduating from the London College of Fashion in 2000, Sara went to work as a designer, eventually becoming a free lance designer in 2006. Requests from people who see her work, wanting to learn her techniques and help finding supplies led her to open her first EBay store, Sara's Texture Crafts, where she supplies beginners with kits & techniques and for those more advanced, kits, fabrics trims and equipment.


"My mission is to supply textile arts and crafts to like minded people."

More requests and inquiries for her crafts led Sara to open two gift boutiques, one at Etsy and one at Da Wanda. Since that time, she has opened another store at Cafe Press, this one featuring items of clothing, home-ware, notebooks and accessories all bearing the graphic work of Sara's Texture Crafts.

Although Sara draws inspiration from many sources, the one element that is common to all her work is texture.

"I enjoy recreating texture by combining a number of mediums."

Sara's latest online venture is expanding her new online craft magazine, 'Crafts of Texture' at http://sarastexturecrafts.blogspot.com/. She also features guest writers on a variety of different subjects, including craft tips and tutorials.
