About Us

Hello and thank you for visiting my website.

My name is Sue and I’ve been passionate about needlework since I was a young girl. It was only once our daughter, Lucy, left school that I found I had the time to turn my passion into something more than a hobby.  Sunken Treasures was born in April 2010 and is an oasis of treats for all sewing enthusiasts.  I originally started the business solely as an online shop and then expanded with retail premises in April 2013 – my shop is located in Ottringham in East Yorkshire (see the Contact Us page for more details about how to find us).

I personally make all my kits and sell them to customers all over the world. I also provide a range of workshops, for all levels, where people can come along and learn needlecraft or hone their existing skills whilst enjoying a coffee and some homemade cake. Or people can simply come and browse the range of products in the shop which is stocked with needlework kits, threads, wool, fabric and accessories.

When I’m not busy with Sunken Treasures, I’m tending to the many animals we have…it’s like a mini zoo!  We have pygmy goats, rheas, peacocks, ducks, chickens, rabbits and a large aviary housing a variety of birds. The list continues to grow with Shaun and Lucy always adding to our brood which in the past has included llamas and ponies.

I hope you find what you’re looking for here at Sunken Treasures.  If not, please drop me a line and I’ll endeavour to help you.  And I’m always keen for feedback, so please do get in touch.

And if you’d like to keep up to date with my latest designs and special offers, ‘Like’ my Facebook page.

Thank you.
