Get to know Hawthorne Handmade
After stumbling across needle felting online on a quiet day, Stephanie owner of Hawthorn Handmade purchased a felting kit from the USA and instantly became addicted. A few months ticked by and this enjoyable pastime transformed into a business, as Steph begun to sell her beautiful felting pieces and before she knew it, was showcasing her work at galleries and fairs across the UK! Shortly after, Stephanie began to teach inspirational evening workshops back at her gallery in Dorset, where many students would ask for some sort of felting kit to take home. From this Stephanie rustled up a starter kit and then dived deep into creating the first 6 animal designs.
Hawthorn Handmade went on to officially launch in May 2013. With 5 wholesale accounts flying in in the first month, Stephanie knew she was on to something and she wasn’t wrong! Over the years the business grew from strength to strength, reigning in 140 stockists in the UK and US, plus providing online sales to almost every continent. A big demand meant a big move and Hawthorn Handmade packed up and moved from the original gallery into storage units and from storage units into a 1000 square foot studio!
Designed alongside her mum Mary, Hawthorn Handmade now supply a beautiful crochet range and have also just launched a brand new embroidery range too!
