Beyond Measure is an online shop selling beautiful things for folk who make. The collection is chosen with care by Grace, the owner and sourced from talented craftspeople and the best small companies from the UK and further afield. Fine leather goods, wooden needle cases, handmade ceramic buttons, stylish European trimmings and textile inspired jewellery are just things you will find in this workbox cornucopia. Add in some vintage treasures and practical tools and you have a collection that will give years of pleasure; beautiful objects that can be passed down to the next generation to use and enjoy.
I was brought up in a house with a Mother, Grandma and Aunt who were usually making something out of thread or wool. I got the sewing bug with my first Petite toy sewing machine and still love making clothes. A career in contemporary craft galleries has developed my love of hand-made items of the highest quality. Sewing has always been a part of my life; now I can combine the two and bring you this collection that is Beyond Measure. I am based on the borders of my home county of Lancashire and West Yorkshire, surrounded by the stunning landscapes and creative people of the Calder Valley.
