Tell us/ remind us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
We are a small business based in West Sussex. We make textile accessories for the home and to wear. We have a very distinctive style; all our accessories are of interesting texture, colour and style. We are contemporary and use a mix of vintage and contemporary fabrics, ribbons and embellishments to make our accessories distinctive and eye catching.
How long have you been making your craft items?
Stitch & Loop have been up and running for 18 months.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
We have three best sellers!! Our vibrant textile neck wraps; a cross between a multi stranded scarf and a textile necklace secured with a contemporary textile brooch, our hand knitted mohair and silk frilly embellished neck wraps which are very light in texture and made in zesty spring colours, and finally our hand knitted and hand felted bracelets and cuffs which are embellished in true Loopy style.
What do you enjoy most about your crafts?
Sitting together with a cup of coffee researching new ideas, discovering new fabrics and getting excited about evolving a new product. We love playing with colour and texture.
Will you have some special Spring time Easter creations for sale?
All our products will be geared up for Spring. Bright zingy colours and lightweight items will pave the way for a glorious Loopy summer!!
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
Yes we can be found occasionally at the monthly Makers Boutique in Brighton (next one is Saturday 12 April), and Knepp Castle on .31st May/1st June. We also stock Rare Rabbit on Tarrant Street in Arundal, Vintage Rose Cafe in Storrington and Strawberry in Chichester.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
We are almost finished building our website with the help of our creative agency Lime Creative in Borough High Street in London, and the aim is to reach as many like minded people as possible. If you love colour, texture and style then you will love Stitch & Loop products.
