About Us

Claire Jakins

store owner

I am passionate about creating things, sewing and knitting in particular. Having over 40 years sewing experience, learning on my Grandma's knee, I have accrued a vast knowledge of sewing. I'm always looking for new things to sew and enjoy exploring new creative ideas.

I love to make anything with a sewing machine. From dressmaking, including lingerie and corsets; patchwork and quilting; soft furnishings; bags and accessories, if it can be sewn on a machine I'll have a go.

I have a market stall on Saturdays selling haberdashery, quilting tools, and now fabric.   I am aiming to bring the best quality at competitive prices to my fellow sewers and am now offering this to online customers.


As well as taking my haberdashery and fabric to sewing classes, I can also be seen at various markets around the Barnsley area


Penistone, Barnsley, South Yorkshire
