Welcome to Needlez N Pinz, fabulous you’re here. The below quotes make me smile, so have a look around and receiving any communication from you, also makes me smile 🙂 Thanks for your time. Clare
My sewing room is my sanctuary. I love sitting here, drawing, designing, planning, pinning, cutting and sewing. Spending lots of late evenings in here completing orders, in my happy place.
I knit and crochet anywhere! As long as I am doing something, I am happy.
Who I Am
I am a qualified Quantity Surveyor working full time. Filling any spare time sewing, knitting or crocheting, even on the banks of lakes whilst fishing (a little diverse, I know)
Please contact me should you wish to place an order for a personalised piece or discuss a bespoke order. See my contact information below and please get in touch.
Work With Me
My skills and specialities include strong communication skills, self motivation, planning, prioritizing, and organizing work.

All of these skills are essential for this business

My Mum taught me to knit at a young age, in fact, I can’t remember not being able to knit. I started knitting dolls clothes and they required sewing. I was keen to develop my skills and went on to learn cross stitch and embroidery. Mastering the sewing machine was my greatest achievement and has become my absolute passion, making clothes, bags, soft furnishings and quilting.
I was keen to add crochet to my skills, but my Mum has never been able to pick this up, so I taught myself. The first pattern I looked at, was weird to say the least, nothing like a knitting pattern. I was determined to ‘get it right’ and practiced continually throughout the school summer holidays until it was mastered!
I am married and we have four amazing kids between us. We are now blessed with a granddaugter and hopefully more to come.
All the items shown within the Needlez ‘N’ Pinz site are made in England and I am happy to send them worldwide. The products are made in an animal free and smoke free home.

Paul Sheehan (23rd January, 2018) Clare is amazing we now have a few items from her including a sausage dog door stop and Christmas snow flakes. We would recommend her to anyone.
Sophie Hayes (18th September, 2019) I have had a couple of orders from Clare at Needlez N Pinz. Both were custom made gifts for family members. Fantastic quality and prompt delivery. Not to mention great value for money! I highly recommend Clare for custom made gifts, fab fab fab, thank you!
Philippa Kennington (24th September, 2019) Absolutely completely in love with my handmade make up/wash bag from Clare! I always get so annoyed with having to ram everything in a small bag, fighting to shut the zip! But I couldn’t find a larger one that I liked until I came across Needlez N Pinz, then saw the zebra print 😍🦓
It’s so so well made and is lovely to have a special handmade piece 😚 I love the fact I can even fit my bamboo hair brush in here too!!!
Will definitely be ordering more items!
