Welcome to Sewn at Home and thank you for stopping by!
I’ve loved crafting for as long as I can remember and markets for nearly as long. When I decided to go the self-employment route, it made sense to combine the two.
I sell sewing and craft supplies at “markets” (aka car boots). You can find me at Ford, West Sussex, on Thursdays and Saturdays throughout the year; at Hayling Island on Wednesdays and The Roundstone (on the A259 between Angmering and Worthing) on Sundays during the summer months, and sometimes at Brighton Marina or Brighton Racecourse on Sundays during the rest of the year. Depending on the weather, of course. How can you spot me? Look out for the stall with blue gingham tablecloths by a cappuccino-coloured Nissan Micra.
Many of my car boot customers have asked me if I have a website. Well, now here it is!
In the Blog section, I’ll be posting car boot news, craft and business book reviews, insights into running a small business, craft inspiration pages and whatever else I think may be of interest.
In my Shop, you can purchase sewing and craft items at car boot prices. Payment is by Paypal. For customers with BN or PO postcodes, you have the option to “collect” – just fill out your order, click the “collect” option and contact me to arrange collection from me or from your preferred car boot. For customers with other postcodes, it’s just £3.00 P&P however large your order and wherever you are in Mainland UK. I send out by second class Royal Mail or by courier (Hermes). As someone who cares for the environment, I use recycled and recyclable packaging wherever possible.
I’ll be adding Blog posts and new products regularly so please check back often!
