My name is Tammy, I started as a card maker in 2003 selling my cards at a local craft fair in Enfield. I took over the group, Enfield Craft Group, that runs those craft fairs in 2005 & continued to run them even after we moved to Northamptonshire in 2006. Rose of the Shires Craft Group was founded soon after with a break for maternity leave, it was relaunched in September 2012. The first event was on 24th November 2012 in the historic parish church of Finedon and was a runaway success.
Since this, we opened our first store in Finedon in 2014 closely followed by a move to Rushden in 2016,then we moved further along the high street to Newton Hall in May 2018. We are loving the new store and really enjoy being able to bring crafts to the local community. Our crafters rent space in the shop for a low monthly fee and myself and my team look after and manage everything else.
