Meet The Team


My name is Sofia and I have been working at Purple Butterfly Crafts for a couple of years now. I started out as a non-crafter but have learned a lot about all the different products available and have even begun making my own cards and doing some knitting. I have made several scarves and a couple of hats for my nephews and have been really pleased with the results.

Before I joined the Purple Butterfly Crafts team, I didn’t realise the vast amount of products and techniques available for crafting, and one of the best things about working here is being able to have a play with the new products that come in.

Having worked in a completely different field before, Lesley and crew took me in and opened my eyes to the world of crafting and now there’s no turning back!


I’m Vi and I have been working for Purple Butterfly Crafts since it became part of the Klondyke Group in March 2010.

Although my knowledge of card making was very limited at first I have now become an addict and make all of my own cards for birthdays and Christmas etc. I have even enlisted my daughter into the world of crafts and we spend a lot of our free time crafting together. Originally decoupage was our favourite but recently we have started rubber stamping and enjoy that even more. Since working at Purple Butterfly Crafts I have been amazed at the number of different products available for card makers and scrapbookers and how knitting appears to be making a comeback.

I work on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays which gives me lots of time during the week to make cards for all my family and friends.

My name is Barbara and I am delighted to have become the newest member of the team.

I have knitted for many years for my children and then for my Grandchildren and now knit for friends' babies and lots of scarves and hats.

I have only recently started crafting but I find the more I do the more I am becoming addicted.  Decoupage is my latest obsession but there are so many things here in the Craft Shop and I am loving working here.

My youngest daughter is a keen crafter and we are learning lots of different techniques together which makes it all the more enjoyable.

Our Craft Shop has so many products to suit everyone's needs.
