Hi, I’m Tess, owner of Yellow Room Crafts; also Mum, maker and active member of the Horsforth community,
I started out crafting items, for myself and my family, in my yellow room in Horsforth, with a sewing machine. I found a passion which I never knew I had and I quickly progressed onto making ceramic coasters, when I couldn’t find any I liked on the High Street. After 2 years of product development, testing and market research, I moved on to selling at local markets, gift shops and now have my own shop on Etsy.
Crafting makes me happy – in fact, it helped me get over a really tough time in my life and I found a talent I never even knew was there. I honestly never imagined that a hobby could kick-start a whole new chapter in my life, but sitting making in my yellow room, I couldn’t be happier. I love sharing my passion with other people. It’s amazing what Arts & Crafts can help you overcome!
So come and visit me on the Horsforth Walk of Art. I will be exhibiting on Saturday 7th July and try your hand at designing your own coaster or bring along an old one to up cycle!
I look forward to taking part in this fabulous free community event.
See you all there!!
