The current owner works in the store full time and is supported by five casual staff who are experienced in knitting, crochet, sewing and customer service, and have a great understanding of the business operations and customer relationships.

History
The business was established 12 years ago and was founded by the current owner. The store has been located in its current location for the past 10 years.

The business has grown significantly over the past twelve years. Initially we opened in 2011 in a small retail space at in Healesville, to test if there was enough interest in the area to support a craft shop. Within two years we had outgrown the premises and relocated to our current location in 2013. The move to larger premises allowed us to expand our range of yarns, fabrics and haberdashery. We now have over 150 lines of yarns from around the world and we specialise in a range of high-quality imported quilting fabrics and luxury linens.
