About Me

Hello and thank you for visiting my site! After many years of dabbling with selling handmade crafts online under the name SmurfPop, I decided to relaunch as A Creative Thread in January 2018. 

Based in the East of England, my background is actually in languages – I have a Masters degree in translation – but my heart has always been with crafts, and after graduating I decided to focus on A Creative Thread full time.

Focused on knitting and crochet, I’ve always had a love of simple designs and natural materials. 

You can find me at the usual sites, or email me if you’d like to get in touch – I’d love to hear from you!
