Vivien was just 9 years old when her brother bought her a set of knitting needles and wool for her birthday.

Over the years her love for anything knitted has grown and after discovering machine knitting she started a two year course at Southampton Institute of Further Education in Fashion Design. She completed her course in 1990 and started to do small local craft fairs in and around Dorset.

Vivien was soon to become a resident craft worker at Stapehill Abbey, Wimborne where the business continued to grow.

Managing her time between her business, three children, running a house and her husbands business, Vivien has always been extremely busy.

Now there are 200 garments in stock at anyone time. Her beautiful colours and designs make an eye catching display.

Vivien has received many accolades for her work, the most recent being a gold, silver and 3 highly commended awards at the Bovington Arts and Craft Show.
