Welcome to Makit Lace & Craft Supplies website!
Welcome to the Makit Lace & Craft Supplies website. This is a website in its final stages of development. During the coming weeks you will find pages added, new features, catalogue and an internet ordering facility introduced to give you the opportunity to take advantage of our ranges, pricing and service.
We however suspect that you would not do business with someone you don’t know so we had better introduce ourselves.
My name is Scilla Stephenson and with my husband Steve I run Makit Lace Craft Supplies, a business that offers mail order supplies of threads, accessories and books to the Lacemaking, Quilting and Needlecraft communities internationally. We believe it is important to meet our customers and put a face to a name and pleased to attend your meetings, events and fairs.
The business was formed in the nineties, combining my knowledge of fashion, design and Lacemaking with my husband’s experience of textile production and conversion to create a business supplying textile related craft markets.
We are proud of the relationship we have established with our customers, many of whom have supported us since we started and have become firm friends. This together with the strong association that we have with our key suppliers has helped to create the international business that we now have, one that provides product from stock with a level of service that is the envy of many of our competitors, a feature that has been enhanced by our recent relocation of the business to an industrial unit in March providing us with the space to develop our stocks and service to an even higher level.
Two craft supplier Fairs, the Makit Fenland Textile Craft Suppliers Fair held in November at St Ives and the Makit LQ & N Fair held in May at the Peterborough Arena (formally the Makit East of England Textile Craft Suppliers Fair are also organised by us and have become major annual events in the East Anglian craft calendar as will be our ongoing sponsorship of a Quilt competition as part of the Peterborough LQ & N event.
We look forward to meeting many of you at the events we attend and to trading with you during the coming months.
