Sussex Crafts has been trading in West Sussex for almost 30 years, it has been under new ownership since May 2016. Initially Sarah took over the business in Cuckfield after spending 11 years as a primary school teacher in Sussex and wanted to turn her passion for crafting into a business. In October 2017, as the business grew, Rachel became a partner in the business; together they have successfully moved the shop into the busy high street in Haywards Heath [which was a real adventure].
Sarah and Rachel both have a love of knitting, but also enjoy crochet, sewing, felting, card making and love to have a go at any crafting activity. You will find Sarah or Rachel in the shop each day, you could also bump into Sarah’s mum Heather or any of their lovely knitting and crochet ladies who like to help out!
