LeisureCraft Tewkesbury was formed in 1986, opening a shop in the delightful Town of (sometimes flooded) Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
Soon after the shop had become established, I started a mail order service with a LeisureCraft Tewkesbury / DMC Presentation Box that contained the full colour range of DMC threads. This was very well received, however, I felt that I should be reaching a wider audience, so I started exhibiting at high profile public consumer shows at the NEC, Birmingham and Olympia, London among 27 others all over the UK, promoting Lavender & Lace, Mirabila, and Butternut Road designs.
Customers loved the designs however, had difficulty obtaining all the specialised threads and beads. That is when I launched the LeisureCraft Tewkesbury Materials Pack which contained everything required to complete the project. I have learned through 25 years of experience running a Hotel in Oxfordshire with my Husband that if your service is clean, tidy, efficient, and reasonably priced, customers will be very loyal and come back for more.
I have now closed the shop in Tewkesbury after 8 years, and due to my senior status and increased world wide sales, I gradually fazed out the consumer shows but have remained a market leader and unique innovator via the good ‘ole world wide web.
The pleasure I gain from having happy customers is immense, and I would like to take this opportunity on my new website to thank my loyal customers and my Daughter Sarah for supporting me while I was quite poorly in hospital 2 years ago.
To both loyal and new customers, I hope you enjoy my new website and your experience with me and my service.
