Hi!  My name is Claire, known to many as Claireybelle. I recently found myself at a crossroads in my life, having been made redundant when the school, at which I had worked for many years, closed. My first thought was: ‘I need to start applying for jobs!’, but then I  realised that this would be the ideal time to pursue my love of sewing.

After a lot of mulling over, I reached the decision that I wanted to create monthly kits accessible to sewers of all abilities: something that would arrive in the post, with everything necessary to get started, and, in addition, a little treat!

My niece, Jessica Bright, and I had always wanted to work together and this was a perfect opportunity.  Jess thought it would be a great idea to stock notions and accessories, consisting of things that we genuinely use and love.  Tilda is our absolute favourite range of fabric, and we love the convenience of sewing with pre-cuts, so we just had to stock a line of Tilda fabric rolls and charm packs. 

So, here we are: Belle & Bright.
