Hello, we are Lorrayne and Jeff Hall and the proud owners of Oh Sew Sweet Shop. We are based in Wombwell near Barnsley, South Yorkshire and have excellent transport networks nearby.
Wombwell is our main base and it even has its own cafe called The Bolthole Cafe serving lovely tea, coffee and cakes!
We began our quilting journey when on a summer break to France in 2012 to visit mother in law Christine who took me to her local quilting group and was introduced to The Crafty Rebels of Maelcarhaix and became hooked. On my return to the South Yorkshire I struggled to find good quality fabric, and most importantly classes that would welcome the complete beginner. The rest as they say is history!
Jeff and I would like our shop to be part of a community of like minded people who love sewing and crafting. Our aim is for the shop to become places where others share knowledge, skills and experiences, meet new friends and we would love you all to be part of this journey with us. We boast a fantastic range of great quality fabric suitable for quilting and sewing, and have over 1000 bolts of gorgeousness for you to peruse.
We have extensive workshops and classes on offer with fabulous tutors with oodles of patience, particularly if you are a beginner. We do cater for the intermediate and advanced crafter and try to arrange a variety of visiting tutors to the shop too. If you have any suggestions to new classes you would like to see just contact us.
Thank you to all for the continued support.
Lorrayne & Jeff xx
