Hello everyone, yes I’m the new girl at QVC, my name is Hannah and I’m the brand new Craft Ambassador (fanfare please). I’m so delighted to be starting at the very beginning of our crafty journey together, as your expert. I will endeavour to bring you some of the most gorgeous craft kits and products in town, made by some fabulous people, including Wool and The Gang, The Make Arcade and Selfie Clothing. All of which are notably home-grown talent.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a stylist, bestselling craft author, presenter, blogger and (slightly obsessive) Instagrammer you can find me @couturecraft. I run the blog CoutureCraft.co.uk where I write craft and baking ideas from my kitchen in South London, if you have a spare min come and say hi!
My role is to try and test the products for you, show you the basics of how to use them and tell you what I really think of them. At the moment I’m having my first test of most of the brands, I just love this Tender Loving Clutch by Wool and the Gang, they’re such a fashion forward brand. I’ll be honest, I’m no expert knitter, but their kits are so well-designed – for beginners to advanced. Oh and it’s in lipstick red, my favourite colour!
I’m also loving stitching along with the instantly Instagrammable Make Arcade. The kits are bright and graphic and super fun, with a collection of miniature cross-stitch kits and felted cacti, you are spoilt for choice.
Why buy in July? Well we all know sometimes it can take us a bit of time to complete craft projects, especially if you are going to make a few as gifts so you’ve definitely got the advantage of time if you begin early. Also it’s a great way to pay for the big day over time. The Selfie T-Shirt kits are so much fun, they are kids colouring- in tops with brilliant graphics, so perfect for your little budding fashion designers. Fantastically QVC have an exclusive Christmas Design range (as well as lots of others) so keep your eyes peeled for those.
I really hope you love the products; we’re going to start small and grow, so any suggestions of the type of kits you would like to see, please comment below. Look forward to hearing from you and see you very soon!
