About Us

Treasured Crafts 

I have been crafting for about 6 years this time I was my grandmothers she got my mother into crafting and I just loved crafting because I love to make a mess that me all over if I don’t make a mess then am not crafting glitter there glue there paper all over the floor.

I started genealogy when I was just 3 years old yes 3 years old my mother started genealogy and made me and my sister every weekend and every holiday we had was going to the archives me and my twin sister used to have to sit under the table why my mother did her research and most people said we where the best behaved children they have ever had there haha they didn’t know us that well.

So that’s how I got into crafting and genealogy now for how I got into business we after leaving school I went to collage to train to be a nurse I was at collage for 2 years I fort I was wasting my time after being told I cant do nursing as I am dyslexia I fort you beep beep beep discrimination so then I left and like most people my age I go looking for a job ahhhh well I could not find a job at all there are only so many rejection letters I could get everyone upset me I was on jobseckers they where going on and on and on you know how they are but you know I turned my life around after things happened that was upsetting I put my heart into the business manly because it was my mothers dream to set a craft shop up so I am now doing it for her hope she likes it maybe she take over when she gets better.

I have so many people to thank who helped me get to where I am today SO THANK YOU !!!! I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for them people.

Angel Bear Knit Bears

Angel Bear  Knit Bears For UK Children Charity

Angelbear is a non-profit organisation which is the notion that all children in a vulnerable position should own a teddy bear.

The lovely lady who runs this heart-felt project is very helpful when you ask about the bear and it’s pattern. If you need any help, she has a tutorial page that shows you all the basic stitches you need to complete the bear. 

But rest assured this is a suitable pattern for a beginner and knits up pretty quick.

I felt that I MUST make a teddy bear to contribute to this goal. She’s provides a pattern in which each bear should be based on. But if you have the ability you can change the pattern textures to any you like. 

This sort of thing really appeals to me so I took it upon myself to create a teddy bear with lots of pattern and texture. I wrote this pattern down. You can find it here. Feel free to use this pattern for non-profit and is suitable for this project too.
All you need is some double knitting yarn in a couple of colours where possible and a pair of 4mm needles, a darning needle and polyester toy stuffing. Non of these items are all that expensive and most crafters will have most if not all of these items already. Just make sure they are new or freshly laundered An ideal way to use up any leftover yarns you have and put a smile on a child’s face, which is worth more than anything!
