When I started Butterfly Bright life was less complicated, with a small premises in Swan Yard and a baby on the way. Since then the shop and workshops have expanded and I have three children under 7yrs, along with a very busy husband!


With my lease coming to an end at Digby Road I have decided to make plans for the future to accommodate all my babies (business, children AND husband) and I’d love to share my good news with you.

It has become clear that holding workshops and teaching new skills to enthusiastic makers is the area of my business I would really like to grow (and what it seems I’m good at) and so this is the part of Butterfly Bright I am going to concentrate on next year.


To achieve this, I am moving to lovely new premises right in the centre of Sherborne, upstairs above Abbey Brides in Cheap Street. It is a great space to work in, an historic building with high ceilings, (a spectacular chandelier!) and good light, and you will see a new and varied range of workshops being launched in 2016.


I will still be stocking the quality designer fabrics and yarns you need for all your making projects but will no longer offer every single haberdashery line.  Although there is still a call for knicker elastic in Sherborne, I’ve found it’s not the kind of retail that empires are built on! A benefit of moving to the new premises (and lowering my overheads) is that I will be able to reduce my fabric prices and become more competitive online – this is an area I would like to expand on while my my children are young.

So I will bid a sad goodbye to 4 Tilton Court on Christmas Eve but look forward to new beginnings at 81 Cheap Street in the New Year.
