What is happening these days at Hoop Haberdashery?
I’ve only been open 6 months, so every day is new and usually a steep learning curve. We’ve got lots of classes and courses happening to keep me busy though, should I ever get a quiet 5 minutes, from learning to knit and crochet to finishing techniques and embroidery.

Friday is definitely the busiest day of the week, I’ve discovered that crafters are an organised bunch and like to have everything they need ready for a weekend of crafting.
Is there anything like the “ideal customer” who knows exactly what he/she wants or do you quite enjoy when people experiment with new ideas and projects?
I love customers who come into the shop open minded and ready to be inspired; I think that’s when you are most creative. My favourite projects always seem to develop from collaboration with other crafters… and sometimes my mistakes
Dissertation Proposal Service Abstract What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love meeting people, talking about their latest project and sharing their enthusiasm, but opening the boxes, packets and parcels of stock that arrive every day comes pretty close!
What seems to be the most loved craft at the shop?
Crochet, without a doubt. The amount of people making granny square blankets, flowers and amigurami is incredible, but knitting comes a pretty close second.
Tell us about a new craft product that caught your eye!
I’m afraid I have to be greedy and list a few, I can’t limit myself to just one!
For the knitters, the Rowan Fine Art sock yarn is just beautiful. It’s hand painted, merino, mohair and silk in the most incredible colours. Just to die for.
For the hookers we have some new crochet kits in from the Crafty Kit Company. I particularly love the crochet corsage kit in a gorgeous soft pink.
And last but not least, What Delilah Did have just launched a great new range of cross stitch cushion kits. Beautiful, easy to stitch and in my opinion, design classics.
