Who are you?
My name is Sandrine. I am a French ex-pat who's lived in the UK for over 26 years. I started The Frog in the Craft in 2018 with a small craft stall. I sometimes need to remind myself that I have since come a long way.
I have been a regular trader at the twice weekly town market where I live in Nottinghamshire for about 18 months where I mostly sell a wide array of crafting supplies and haberdashery. I also attend other regular craft fair with my handmade items and host workshops at various locations as often as I can.
I am a multi-crafter who loves to learn new "old" skills as I love to focus on the heritage or historic crafts. I was inspired and encouraged by my granddad, at a young age, to make things by hand. I still have and use my wooden sewing box I made with him some 40 years ago.
My main crafts are the Dorset button, slow-stitching and the papercraft of quilling. I also enjoy recycling and repurposing object or materials.
In terms of items I make, I take the most joy and pride in making object which have a purpose, which are meant to be used but at the same time which are keepsakes or could be heirlooms passed down - such as needle cases, sewing kits, pincushions, buttons, etc.
What do you make?
My main handmade products are framed quilling or mixed media pictures, haberdashery items such as pincushions, needlebooks and needle cases, buttons. Bookmarks, jewellery, hair accessories.
