About Me

 

Hi, my name is Rachel and I own Knitwits Wool, which I started back May 2016. For many years, knitting and crafting was a hobby and passion of mine and I never thought that one day, it would be my business as well.  After a long career with the NHS an injury meant that I had to suddenly rethink my career and so the idea for Knitwits Wool was born and I am really lucky to be doing something I love.

I have been knitting for over thirty years and have picked up a few bad habits along the way!

Knitwits Wool began as an online wool store and was only ever meant to be online!  I then started doing markets and craft fairs locally and I soon discovered that us knitters and crocheters love nothing more than to squish and touch the yarn before buying it. So, in July of 2019, I fulfilled my dream and opened up a little place in Chichester, called Many Hands Hut based in Draper's Yard, just on the of outskirts of the city centre. Many Hands is a collaboration with a friend, Pam, so as well as having space for some of my yarns, we are a crafters hut that sells local hand made crafts from across West Sussex.

 

However, I still have my regular stall at Shoreham Indoor Market which I will now be doing every other Wednesday morning between 9-12pm and I will still pop up at at various events throughout the year! I hope to see you at Many Hands Hut, Draper's Yard
