Welcome to Manfield Crafts
Hello. My name is Emma. My Mum taught me to knit when I was five and I have been knitting ever since. After finishing my degree in textile design I was fortunate enough to work in the design industry for ten years in London. After leaving London and having babies I found it really difficult to find a local, good quality knitting shop so I decided to open one myself.
Since opening in 2007 I have stocked the shop with a beautiful selection of knitting yarn, patterns and accessories and have run workshops and tutorials but my proudest achievement has been my knitting groups. Every Friday morning and Saturday afternoon the shop is packed with the most lovely knitters, chatting, knitting, drinking tea and eating biscuits and if the whether is fine we are in the garden.
Recently the competition from large on line companies have made it hard to compete. As of 2016 I will be open for all my knitting groups and I will be running workshops and lessons. I will also stock a large range of the Knit Pro needles and accessories, my own kits and a limited range of yarns. I am always happy to order yarn in for you.
My family and I live above the shop with my beautiful doggies Purl and Pixie. So please come and visit …. the kettle is always on.
