As a former fashion designer, Corinne Lapierre started her own craft brand a few years ago. “I love inspiring people so creating a range of felt craft kits seemed like an obvious choice” says Corinne.
With a passion for crafts from around the world, Corinne uses colourful embroidery on wool felt for a charming, folky style. She is on a mission to give people the confidence to pick up a needle and start stitching. “Felt is the easiest medium to work with and anybody can achieve great results. It is all about having fun!”
Corinne has written 4 books with Search Press and she regularly appears on Create & Craft TV, having built quite a following.
Her award-winning kits are now distributed around Europe, the US, Australia and Japan.
Lisa Marie Olson, Entrepreneur, Creative Director and originator of Tigerlily Makes designs in all things wonderland, from the heart of her home studio in the Midlands! As Seen on TV, “Award Winning” and Voted Best of British are just a few of the highlights of Lisa’s creative life. Her love affair with creative arts started at school with needle work and textile arts. The interest in creative pastimes continued into adulthood and over the past 35 years Lisa has continued to develop skills in all areas of creativity, from creating decorative items for the home, up-cycling, paper crafting, sewing, embroidery and felt-making. Many of Lisa’s designs are created and inspired by an enormous love of classic fairytales and stories such as Alice in Wonderland, which have been the inspiration for her book Felt Wonderland published by Search Press. So why not come and share in the magic that Tigerlily Makes.

I’m Loti Maria and I have been crafting since I was a little girl after years of rushing home from school to watch Art Attack. When I was on maternity leave, I decided to start blogging on my own blog ‘Mama Makes and Bakes’ about any projects I had created and sharing any recipe’s I had baked in the kitchen. The blog grew and grew and eventually I decided to evolve the blog into my own craft brand Mama Makes and put my love for design to good use and start designing clear polymer stamps. Now we have been a stamp brand for almost 2 years and have been featured in craft magazines and sold our items on Hochanda TV. The blog is now on www.mamamakesstore.co.uk/blog and myself and my 5 design team members regularly post projects and inspiration, inspiring homemade creativity across the world.
Sum of their Stories
Hi, I’m Julie and I am ridiculously enthusiastic about crafting. I’ve been dabbling in all sorts of crafts for as long as I can remember and was encouraged endless as I grew up by the wonderful women in my life. Not everyone is lucky enough to have had this support so I started my blog Sum of their Stories to share my enthusiasm and to encourage others to just give a craft a go. When you find the craft you love it is such a wonderful therapy, and with so many different types of craft out there, I’m convinced there is something for everyone.
