Hello! Let me introduce you to our wee business. I’m Tracey, founder and one half of the Craft sum More team.
Where did it begin?
I had a career in a great (but stressful!) job, but after two redundancies in three years, I knew it was time for a change. I wanted to do something I was passionate about and that would make a difference in kids’ lives. As a life-long crafter, I’ve enjoyed the mental health benefits crafting delivers, and I saw how I could pass these benefits on to our future crafters, helping kids develop and bringing families together through crafts.
I’m an accredited Knitting For All teacher, teaching kids to craft for over three years, before Covid-19 struck. I’ve missed having face-to-face classes with the kids. It seemed unfair that they were missing out on getting creative and learning new crafts. They were also missing out on all the other wonderful benefits that crafting brings, like mindfulness, problem solving, self-expression, relaxation, and improving focus and fine motor skills. These are skills that will stand them in good stead for a lifetime.
I started Craft sum More because I wanted to make it easy to get kids and their families bonding over crafts, by packaging happiness in a craft kit, delivered right through your door. Our projects can be completed quickly, so children grow in confidence and see themselves as creatively capable. Each kit is lovingly handmade right here in bonny Scotland. Connect with us on social media to see when we add new kits.
Craft sum More is all about quality family time. Family is so important to me, that my daughter Tiffany has joined me on this mission. So grab a cuppa, open your kit and let’s begin building skills and crafting happy family memories.
