So, I am Susan Holt, the creator of all the hand made items you find on this site. I used to show my Miniature Wire Haired Dachshunds and started to make show leads for them, which progressed to making show leads for other exhibitors.
I have always crafted things. As I progressed, I became interested in other art forms, different crafts …….. and then I discovered my love for Felting, firstly wet felting, and then needle felting. I took space at a few dogs shows and craft fairs to see if people were interested in buying my items ………… thankfully they were and I made a successful buiness, visiting shows, festivals and craft fairs across the U.K.
Next, I developed an on-line shop in eBay, then an Etsy Shop and began building up a customer base from all over the world. This enabled us to move ourselves, our dogs and our crafting, to Northern France, wehre we now live. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, in a peaceful and tranquil environment, I am very, very fortunate to be able to make my sculptures, leads and other creations, in the middle of a little piece of Nature’s heaven!
