About Us

How it all began…

Ali Nurton – Founder & Director

Ali created the Butterfly Bright brand in April 2011 after noticing a gap in the market in Sherborne for fabulous fabrics, haberdashery and making workshops.

Ali has been sewing since she was about 10 years old and loves to make patchwork quilts if she has any spare time outside of running the business and bringing up three little ones. Ali is keen on crochet and is starting to find her way around a pair of knitting needles!

After many enjoyable years running a physical shop in Sherborne, Butterfly Bright is now offering it’s range of designer fabrics, wools and accessories online only.

From 2018 Workshops will be run on an adhoc basis from host locations – including The Slipped Stitch in Sherborne.
