About The New Craft House
Hello! We are Hannah and Rosie and together we run The New Craft House. Friends since school, we’ve always been obsessed with crafting. After struggling to find fresh and exciting craft products we set up The New Craft House in 2013. Using traditional crafting techniques in modern and stylish products, our range of kits and workshops inspire everyone to be creative. We work and run workshops from our studio on Broadway Market, East London. We’d love to hear from you so comment, find us on instagram or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hannah has always enjoyed making and started sewing more than 8 years ago. She’s a bit of flakey crafter and is always getting distracted with new projects. At the moment she is on a mission to make an entirely handmade wardrobe to try and live more consciously and sustainably.
Rosie’s Mum is a big crafter so she grew up surrounded by them! She is good at spending time on slower projects and is a knitting addict. She lives on a canal boat so enjoys working on projects to help turn it into a cosy home.
The Long Story...
We set up The New Craft Society (our previous blog name) in February 2013 with zero knowledge or experience of blogging, we learned everything as we went along. Our blog grew far more than we dreamed possible though and less than a year after we started we won the Cosmopolitan Magazine Best Craft Blog award!
Around the same time as winning the award we both moved into a house in East London, you may have seen its pink door in some of our pictures. Our blog continued to grow and we started running workshops for companies like Converse and Cath Kidston and writing features, you can see everyone we’ve worked with on our Press page. When we officially turned 1 we also held our blog birthday event with Liberty – a pretty big deal for two of the biggest Liberty print fans on the planet!
Since then we’ve developed our blog into a full-time business for both of us. We run lots of craft workshops, write regular features for magazines like Mollie Makes, appear on TV and sell our own line of products. We also won an award for entrepreneurship from UCL. We’re now work full time together on the business from a studio on Broadway Market, East London. We’re really proud of everything we’ve achieved in the past few years and so excited for everything we have planned next!
