Learning to make lace in her early 20s, Liz found that almost as soon as she started learning there was a shortage of teachers.  Within 2 years, Liz started to teach and found that people enjoyed learning with her. 

By the turn of the millennium, Liz had taken this love of teaching crafts and turned it into a full time job as a business trainer.

Liz's business training skills have been recognised with Industry awards and she has used her experience to make learning a new craft a pleasure.

Passionate about having the right tools for the job, this has led Liz into sourcing and creating the essentials for crafting that are both beautiful to own and use.  Liz likes to say that she finds the items that she want in her life so that you will want them too.  Having beautiful tools inspire you to create. Starting with needlecraft tools; the etui of our name Liz has branched out into bags and other storage for crafts, work and special occasions.

In September 2017, Liz created two new learning opportunities.  She founded the Rothwell bobbins for lacemaking and Kumihimo Me for Japanese braiding.

 

With over 25 years experience in marketing, Liz has launched the digital crafter to help other creatives with their digital presence.

All of our etui branded braiding kits are designed by Liz and made in the heart of the United Kingdom.

Liz is a member of the Heritage Craft Association, the Lace Society, The Braid Society and a Founder Member of the American Kumihimo Society.
