About Us

How it all began…

Alison created the Butterfly Bright brand in April 2011 after noticing a gap in the market in Sherborne for fabulous fabrics, haberdashery and making workshops.  You will now find Butterfly Bright in gorgeous new premises upstairs at 81 Cheap Street, Sherborne.  The new, welcoming workshop will focus on teaching new skills to makers of all abilities and the shop offers designer fabrics, wools and accessories to complete all your making projects.

Although the shop is no longer open every day we host several workshops a week and during any workshop you are booked onto you will be able to purchase items from the shop. We will also hold open days and special shopping events through the year.

Alison is the inspiration and driving force behind Sherborne’s original making workshop.  She works with a team of experienced tutors and renowned makers to offer new skills and confidence with making, sewing, knitting, crochet and many other kitchen table crafts.
