MY BUZZ

It's been less than a week since Blooming Felt won #sbs and already we've seen a huge increase in the amount of visitors to our website. Our Twitter followers increased by over 100 on the night that Theo retweeted us and the number is increasing every day. After sending press releases to a number of local publications, we've been asked to write a monthly craft column for a magazine and are hoping to be featured in a some of the major craft publications as well. And all this in just the 2 days since we won #sbs ! Thanks Theo !!

MY BIO

I had my "lightbulb" moment back in 2007 when, after scouring the internet for UK based companies selling felt balls for a project I was working on, I found none so had to source them from abroad. I had to order a large quantity when I only needed a handful so put the rest for sale on my blog. 24 hours later they were all sold out !! I'd found a gap in the market for handmade 100% wool felt and spent a couple of months sourcing the best wool felt I could find. 7 years on and we're still the market leader. Our range has increased massively and we supply all sorts of people and companies, including Royal Palaces, TV and Theatre production companies, magicians, individual crafters and we even supplied felt to Paris Fashion Week. Our first book "Felt Fantastic" was published in September 2013 and went straight to number 1 on Amazon's Best Seller list for craft titles. We regularly exhibit at Europe's largest textile show, the Knitting & Stitching Show, at Alexandra Palace in London and this year were invited by Kirstie Allsop to exhibit at her first "Handmade Fair" at Hampton Court Palace. We're really chuffed to have both Theo & Kirstie thinking we're the bees-knees and can't wait to see what's next !
