Bramble Crafts

Hi! I am Deborah, and I am the face behind Bramble Crafts. 

Bramble Crafts started back in 2009, when I inherited my Grandmother's sewing machine.  As a child I spent many happy hours with her, making cushions, watching her knitting (at the speed of light, and without even looking). 

As an adult, I was inspired by watching my Mum, also an avid knitter (again, at the speed of light and without looking), especially when I saw her crocheting a beautiful blanket. 

My love of crochet began that very night. 

Then in 2013, I purchased a paper cutting kit from Paper Panda.  I was instantly addicted, and have since developed my own range of paper cutting templates, with 33 fairy tales, 5 nursery rhymes and some more adult-style fairy templates.  Some of the fairy tales were later commissioned as cross stitch kits by Bothy Threads, and are part of an ongoing range of children's clothing, made by myself.  2022 will see them turned in to a homewares range. 

I have also had crafting software created, which you can find on the pages above. 

I run Bramble Crafts alongside a building company that I co-own, and while training to become a breastfeeding counsellor and antenatal teacher, at our offices in Hampshire.

I am also a Mum of 8 as a blended family.
