The Prolific Crafter (Jen) has been crafting in all aspects of fibre crafts for over 20 years. Since she has been developing her crafts and experience she started sharing the love and addiction of wool with the world. From learning to knit at the age of 8 Jen started to develop her own patterns at the age of 20.
We now have our real-life shop in Church Stretton, Shropshire. If you visit our shop you will be greeted by one of the lovely team at Prolific Crafter HQ. The shop team consists of Jen, Rachel, Lizzie, Lucy and Marian. We all are prolific crafters in our own ways and are happy to assist with any crafty issues.
Behind the scenes The Prolific Crafter is supported by 4 generations of Jen's family! Edythe (Grandma) is a keen knitter and knits items for the shop. Rachel (Mum) is general dogs body to The Prolific Crafter! Graham (Husband) is resident handyman and muscle. Dominic (son) AKA the Mini-Crafter is often assisting in making up kits, helping out with YouTube and running around at craft fayres!
We stock a full range of specialist yarns, Knit Pro needles, wool tops and more. The shop is also an area for local crafts people to showcase some of their work, we have resident crafters and every 2 months we have a new guest crafter. Our resident crafters include works from the original Prolific Crafter - Jen, a selection of knitted, crocheted, felted and spun items. The shop is also where you can find items from Lizzie Charlton Handbags, Chicory Blue and Wiggly Woo. We have a selection of handmade leather bags, purses, upcycled accessories and keyfobs.
In the shop you will also find ethically sourced felted goods from Nepal. Along with a wide selection of super snuggly alpaca socks and woolly socks.
