A Sad Goodbye

I'm absolutely gutted to be writing this post today... you may have seen the announcement on the Crafter's Comapnion blog a bit earlier that our Sarah Millsop will be leaving us. As part of a deal which sees our entire beading division acquired by Beads Direct, Sarah will be joining them at the start of September.


Sarah has been an incredible member of staff since she started back in 2010, she’s been loyal, dedicated and incredibly hard working and I know she’s a popular and highly regarded member of the team.


Having said that, this is an incredible opportunity for Sarah in her personal development and career progression and we don’t doubt that she’ll absolutely take the business to that next level with the support of the Beads Direct team so we wish her well in her future endeavours.


I still love my new found hobby and I’ll be continuing to buy Sarah's kits on TV (just I’ll have to pay for them now, I won’t be able to pinch them from the warehouse!!). I'll be sure to share some of my makes with you from time to time too!

For a bit more information on this transition head over to the Crafter's Companion blog to read the official announcement.
