The Story of
PEARLYWINKS CRAFT SUPPLIES
Pearlywinks Craft Supplies®, formally Crafters Stash was founded in 2018 by Simon Kendall-Stokes, he has been crafting for as long as he can remember and set up his own crafting business in 2014 called One Stop Memory Shop with his Mum Dee who has been crafting longer than Simon has been alive.
It was decided that the new craft supply business would branch away from the One Stop Memory Shop name so that people would not get confused and be able to differentiate the two areas of the business.
Donna, Simons sister another avid crafter started crafting in the early 00's and has a great eye for detail, she became a partner in the business mid 2018 and loves inputting in the developing and designing new exciting fun products and has been able to source some exceptional card stock.
Adam, Simons partner also joined the business towards the end of 2018 to help with the production side as we make all of our sprays and Texturing pastes in house as well as package all of our products ourselves including stamps and adhesives. Adam also has input in the development of new colours for our beautiful range of sprays. Adam has also taken on the roll of marketing manager to help grow the business
We are a true family business and try where possible to use products that have been manufactured in the UK. Our stamps are manufactured for us by another small family run business.
Simon, Donna and Adam can be seen on the TV Craft Channel Hochanda once a month, the journey began with the TV Chanel only 3 months after Pearlywinks was established (at the time known as Crafters Stash). On their first show they had only 3 Ink sprays, 4 Mica sprays and 2 paper pads. Now their brand has grown, they have over 40 sprays, Texturing Paste, Adhesives, Stamps and Stencils.
Our customers are extremely important to us, without them we wouldn't have a business so we pride ourselves on providing quality products at great prices with exceptional customer service.
