Welcome to The Artful Bobbin!

A very happy new year and big thank you 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 .  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.


After a busy festive season, including local markets in Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, we are now looking forward to an exciting 2022 with lots of new ideas both on the sewing and art front.  We hope you'll drop in regularly to see what's new online and visit our stall at more South Hams markets from March.  On their way, magnets, mugs, notepads and more, all based on Sally's designs, as well as colouring books, more original art and new card designs.  Meanwhile, Pip is busy in her sewing room working on a range of new sewn characters and projects to be launched on the Bobbin site very soon - so watch this space!

For now, don't forget we have our Four For Three card offer in full swing (applying to everything on Sally's Cards and Tags page - see the menu).   Just select four individual cards or tags (and sets of tags), and type in 443 in the code box at the checkout to get the lowest priced item free.   More offers the way throughout this year and don't forget, postage is currently included in the price of our items so there's nothing extra to pay at checkout.  We regret we aren't currently shipping outside of the UK but this may well change in the future.

Once again, wishing you all the very best for 2022 and thank you for dropping by!

With very best wishes, Sally and Pip.
