A few crafters from the Christmas craft fair at Wickham Bishops

Posted by Kylie Sparkes on Wednesday 5th December 2018

“Sept 2017 I decided to change and reduce my day job from full time to part-time. Creating and crafting has been with me since I was a little girl. This career change amongst other things meant I could have time to develop my ideas and get around to selling my Hotanicals Heatpads online as well as starting to attend craft fairs or arranging pop up shops locally. All the heatpads contain UK grown flax seeds and lavender flowers and the packaging is also UK made and environmentally friendly 

Variety is the spice of life apparently and I do like to have a good variety of things on the go, so along with the heat pads I also have a selection seasonal items.”
