Sara Davies (nee Johnson) graduated from the University of York Management School with first class honours. As part of her degree she undertook a year in industry working for a mail-order company operating in the Arts and Crafts Sector. After undertaking product development research, by the time she returned to complete her final year of study in October 2005, she had a number of products in the final stages of development, and felt the impetus to push forward instead of awaiting her graduation (as had previously been her intention).
So, in September 2005 Crafter’s Companion was formed. Crafter's Companion now has an office in the North-East of England, as well as in California, USA, from where the American side of the business is conducted. Since the launch of the Enveloper, which Sara designed a
nd developed with the help of her father, the company has gone from strength to strength. Numerous awards have been won by Sara individually, and by the company as a whole, both in the crafting industry and the business world in general. Innovative products such as the Ultimate Pro and the Rock-a-Blocks have changed the world of crafting and encouraged greater numbers of people into papercrafting.
Crafter's Companion has grown to become one of Europe's leading manufacturers and suppliers of crafting products. We're a family business and we're renowned for bringing our customers innovative crafting tools and supplies.
