Welcome to the Homemakery!

Hello and welcome to the Homemakery and our very first blog post!

The Homemakery sprung from a love of making, making things for my home, making things for my friends and family, and a general frustration with loving a variety of crafts but having to search high and low for the kind of pretty craft materials I wanted to use. And that’s what inspired the Homemakery, a craft boutique for the modern crafter, the type of crafter who isn’t afraid to give a new hobby a try whether its, crochet, sewing or making your own lampshades.

I’ve spent the last nine months hunting high and low to bring a range of beautiful craft and home products together on one gorgeous website, I really hope I’ve succeeded. So what will you find at the Homemakery?

Wool & Yarn

Lovely yarn by Rowan, Erika Knight, Rooster, Rico & Stylecraft. Knitting needles by KnitPro and Crochet Hooks by Clover and Pony. Not to mention Pom-pom makers by Clover.

We specialise in a range of cottons and linens perfect for dress making, quilting, and general home decor in a variety of pretty patterns: floral fabrics, ticking and striped fabrics, gingham and check fabric and lots of spotty dotty fabric. We stock fabrics by Tanya Whelan, Valori Wells, Sevenberry and a fantastic new UK fabric company Dashwood Studios.
