About Us

Hello, I’m Louise, owner of The Wool Loft. 
When I’m not in the shop chatting to my customers or running workshops, you’ll find me at home with my lovely family. I’m a qualified teacher and prior to opening The Wool Loft worked in a local school for 13 years. 
I love most crafts and sharing my knowledge and creativity with those around me. 

The Wool Loft opened in its current location, the old Post Office on Broadway, in June 2020 smack bang in the middle of a global pandemic. 
It was a bit of a scary time but a move that been on the cards for a while. 

For 3 years I had been working in my beautiful studio, hidden away above Glazey Days Creative Cafe, however I outgrew the space and felt that I and my customers were ready for something more.

My friend Alison is also a small business owner and her business Threaders Boutique, had also been growing and was ready for the next step. So we took the leap together and joined forces to open the shop as you know it now. Working together makes it possible for us to run our businesses, whilst supporting each other and achieving a work/family life
