What’s in a name?
Why “GardeningWitch”? I am a keen amateur gardener living in a small Bedfordshire village in the UK. Hence the “Gardening” part of my business name. I also like crafts such as knitting, spinning, sewing, willow weaving and making things in general, for which I am sometimes (lovingly) called a “Cacky-fingered Old Witch”. Hence the “Witch” part of my business name.
What do I do?
I make stylish and practical accessories and tools for the yarn crafter, including project bags, hook and needle storage solutions, stitch markers, and shawl pins. I sell my products in my ETSY shop, and I also sell in person at selected events.
I teach a variety of knitting and spinning workshops.
I have knitting patterns available in my Ravelry store.
When I am at an event I also sell lovely ceramic yarnbowls, handmade by a good friend, who is a talented potter. His yarnbowls have been sold at craft fairs and local knitting shops. Take a look at Chris Greening Pottery to find out more.
