Hi, I'm Melissa, I'm a mother to one gorgeous little boy, wife to a VERY understanding husband, and the owner of Creative Craft Supplies!
My background wasn't craft related at all! I left school and had no idea what I wanted to do. So I worked in the family flooring business, and even helped fit the flooring! 7 years in I was running a team of fitters, but it didn't feel like I wanted to do this forever, and I was ready for a new challenge! My brother now runs the business.
I discovered crafting via Manor House Hotel (if you haven't been there I recommend it!) and haven't looked back! Over the years I've dabbled in sewing, screen printing, vinyl craft and embroidery. I love it all!! Which is why I started Creative Craft Supplies in 2014.
Concentrating on great quality products, over the years I've developed a range of core craft materials: Wool Blend Felt, Polyester Felt, Fine Glitter Fabric, Chunky Glitter Fabric, Iron on Vinyl HTV. Which I've sourced from around the world.
When I was blessed with my son, I decided to concentrate on offering materials that were safe for him. So our EN71 certified materials range was born and I'm looking forward to expanding this range in the future.
Over the years I've been flattered by many crafters contacting me and asking for advice on how they can run their own small businesses - so I created Creative Crafter Club. A website for creative crafters where I share my knowledge on all aspects of running a small business.
