About Simply Sewing Boxes

Supporting your local sewing studio

Hello My name is Ami and I am a quilter and textiles artist. I am also the founder of Simply Needlecraft Haberdashery & Sewing Studio based in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, UK.

Simply Needlecraft was set up in 2012 originally online but finally found a bricks and mortar outlet in 2013. I had originally set up as a haberdashery store but found my passion when I started teaching. With the help of my friends and family, we converted the upstairs of the shop in to a beautiful sewing studio. That’s when the workshops began.

Our subscription box service is designed to provide you with the highest quality quilting and craft materials so you can create your own hand made quilts, cushions and crafts. Using my expertise, I hand pick the fabrics and threads for each monthly box. We have create a series of tutorials and live webinars to help you get the most out of our service. Please contact us if you need any help or require any advice. I’ve joined forces with my partner to bring you the very quality fabrics, thread and yarns instore and online.

Adult Sewing, Knitting and Craft Workshops

The adults workshops range from Knitting, Crochet through to sewing, quilting and textile arts. Workshops in our studio are available in the day or evening. Pop over to our online shop and have a browse of dates and prices.

Childrens Sewing and Quilting Workshops

The Sewing Studio is also well known for our children’s sewing bee. I teach children from the age of 8 to 16 years in small groups. These groups run throughout the week. All children learn the basics and work upwards. I’m extremely proud to say we have award winning quilts at the International Festival of Quilts 2017 in the primary and secondary group category.

In 2018 I took a break from the High Street to concentrate on the workshops and events but in January 2020 the Haberdashery will have a bricks and mortar home yet again.
