Hello, fellow craft lovers!
Today marks a special day for Emily's Weaving – the launch of our brand new website! I am thrilled to finally unveil a space that reflects the passion, creativity, and colourful nature that goes into every piece I create.
But before we dive in, let's take a moment to appreciate the journey that led me here. Emily's Weaving is more than just a business; it's a labor of love fuelled by a lifelong fascination with crafts, colourful interiors and passion for creating with my own hands.
From the Beginning: The Emily's Weaving Story
I have always been interested in Home Decor, even taking an evening class learning everything about Interior design a few years ago. I stumbled upon weaving whilst browsing Pinterest in 2017, adding numerous pins to my never ending ✨ Future Home Inspiration board ✨ I saw images of woven wall hangings and once discovering one I loved, I shortly realised it was out of my budget. However, that sparked an interest in me. I like to put my hand to anything, always learning how to do different crafts and projects and I don't like to fail at learning to do something.
I have always been interested in crafts. My mum taught me how to knit at a young age I even remember choosing to doing a class presentation about knitting back in primary school!
I had some wool stashed at home from when I learned how to crochet. So I gathered my materials and fashioned my own loom with a canvas frame (with the canvas removed) and lots of nails hammered in each end. It produced a very wobby weave, and at the time I was so impressed with it! My skills have greatIy improved since then, and I have even recreated my original weave in my store with my Custom Geometric Woven Wall Hanging.
Flash forward to now and I have introduced several new crafts into my repertoire including crochet and yarn spinning, and I have created my own DIY Kits so others can learn to weave and discover their creativity.
Weaving the Web: A New Online Site
I have poured my heart (and several evenings work over the past months) into crafting a website that's as beautiful and user-friendly as the products. One of the additions to my new website is this new blog! I remember back in 2020/2021 I spent so much time connecting with my audience through daily stories and long form captions on Instagram and I feel like I don't do that enough anymore. It was such a lovely space where I made so many small business friends and lovely customers who were all shopping small during the pandemic.
I wanted to create a space where I can talk about crafts, exciting opportunities and collaborations and keep you up to date on all things going on behind the scenes at Emily's Weaving!
