Beyond Measure is a 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 inspired 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. We now have a small shop and workshop space that you can visit too!
We sell beautiful and useful things for makers. Our products are sourced with care and consideration for those who make them and we work with smaller companies and individuals whose sourcing and manufacturing process are transparent.
We hope to be an inclusive company and strive to create an environment that is welcoming and embraces diversity, both with our online presence, the makers we represent, our physical pop-ups events and our collaborations.
We welcome suggestions about how we can improve our approach.
We donate monthly to the charities Labour Behind the Label and the Runnymede Trust.
