Hello! Are you interested in advertising your craft business on my blog and website?
I’m Claire-Louise Hardie, AKA The Thrifty Stitcher.
When not teaching at The Thrifty Studio I’m a Love sewing Magazine columnist: A Sewing Bee Author, and the Sewing Producer for the Great British Sewing Bee. I’m also a Professional Costumier, with a CV of employers that includes-
The RSC:The Royal National Theatre:Regent’s Park open air Theatre and “The Audience” with Dame Helen Mirren. I have been sewing for 30 years and my first book, The Great British Sewing Bee- Fashion with Fabric was a best seller in 2015, winning Best sewing book 2015 in the British Sewing Awards
Some of my clients
I’ve been sharing and recommended fabric and sewing suppliers to my students and readers since I first launched this site in 2009. I’m passionate about sharing good suppliers and resources, so if you think your business is a good fit, then I’d love to help you reach a further audience. I choose partners and advertisers very careful, so that adverts relate specifically to the readers of my blog and website, if you’re selling cars or baking supplies, then I’m afraid my site isn’t for you!
