I have been crafting in some way or another most of my life, picking up a variety of skills on the way. I retired from teaching young adults with learning difficulties and decided to start my own business, Crafting by Steph, in which I run workshops in crochet, needle felting and a range of other crafts. I also sell my work at craft shows and a few local outlets, focusing on home decor and trinkets. Crafting has often been my saviour at times of crisis, hence my strapline “Mindfulness in crafting”. I continue to develop my skills, taking any opportunities I can, and love sharing my skills.
