our story

Cloth Dolly Crafts was started by me, Jill Graham, working from my kitchen table in 2012.  I sold my work at a few farmers' markets and craft fairs and this soon grew from a hobby to a real passion.

Cloth Dolly Crafts has undergone a few changes since those early days; having been joined by my sister Angela M. Graham in 2022, the two of us are now creating a far wider range from our garden studio and design workshop.

At Cloth Dolly Crafts we combine our creative and design skills to handmake a stunning range of products.

All designs are initially inspired from nature, or vintage fabric finds and of course, the surrounding Northumberland countryside and coast.

We use a mix of British tweeds, velvets, vintage and pre-loved fabrics we have created a beautiful collection of handcrafted giftware, including tweed stags’ heads, animal ornaments, lavender filled creatures, oodles of bunting, fabric brooches, cards and an ever-growing Christmas range. 

Cloth Dolly Crafts are committed to making our products as sustainable and earth friendly as we can.
