Hi, I'm Kirsty, and I own SImply Divine Things. It all began in 2011 when an accident left me unable to walk and on bed rest for many months. Out of sheer boredom I began to make personalised bookmarks and little fabric pictures on my bedside cabinet and set up a shop on Ebay to sell them in. My then toddler son was an inspiration and I wanted to make more things for his room. I started to hand-sew cushions as I coudn't use a sewing machine and neither did I own one! As I got better and started to walk again, I got a sewing machine and learned how to sew with it.
The business has grown bit by bit and in January 2015 I made it my full time job, accommodating a bedroom at home as my workroom. 2020 has been a whirlwind year for all us, and Simply Divine Things has changed considerably. In July, my first team member Ann started sewing for me as I struggled to keep up with demand on my own, and then in October, Sally joined me, along with moving into separate business premises, much to my other half's delight as the house is no longer full of fabric!
2021 will see the release of lots of new products, and sadly the retirement of some existing ones. It may also even include a third team member joining the adventure!
