Jean (on the left) and Shirley (on the right) first met through their love of dancing. They soon realised they had another thing in common - a love of crafting. With an interest in textures and colours this 'hobby' soon grew and became Caversham Crafts.
We are passionate about supporting local business and 'Buying British' so we purchase as much of our fabric as we can from our 2 main local suppliers - Village Fabrics in Wallingford and Lady Sew & Sew in Henley on Thames. The majority of our wool used in our needle felting is from British breed sheep, mainly, Jacob, Shetland, Wensleydale (not a crumb of cheese in sight), Teesdale and Whitefaced Woodland. Some of which has been hand collected and hand dyed.
All of our re-usable, washable cotton face masks and other gifts are handmade in Jean's Edwardian loft room in Caversham Heights and Shirley's Victorian craft room in Lower Caversham.
So truly a Caversham craft.
