Welcome to The Artful Bobbin!

Thank you so much for dropping in to our little online shop! The Artful Bobbin was launched just over a year ago by Pip Luscombe and Sally Williams, lifelong friends who grew up together in the South Hams.  If you'd like to know more about us please feel free to take a look at the 'Our Story' page which will explain how it all came about.  Briefly, Pip does all the sewing you will see on these pages and Sally the drawing - in fact you'll often see Sally's characters recreated as ceiling mobile and wall hanging characters by Pip - nothing Sally draws ever seems beyond Pip's skill and ingenuity to recreate with her trademark attention to fine detail!).


 We're currently gearing up for a busy time with festive markets in the South Hams area - Kingsbridge Market Hall from  6 to 31 December (closed Sundays and all the bank holidays bar 28 December) and Dartmouth Christmas Market in the Old Market Square on Saturday 18 December. If you are in the local area, do pop in to enjoy a fabulous selection of stalls at both venues - you could find the perfect gift or card!

Here on the online shop, we have our Four For Three card offer in full swing (applying to everything on Sally's Cards and Tags page - see the menu) - but excluding the Christmas cards and tags which have their own page).  Just select four non Christmas cards or tags, and type in 443 in the code box at the checkout to get the lowest price free.   More offers to come in 2022 and many  more new items!  Oh, and don't forget, postage is included in the price of our items so nothing extra to pay at checkout.

Have a fabulous festive season and sending you all good wishes for 2022!

With very best wishes, Sally and Pip.
