Collection: Nic Knack New

Nic Knack New is an ex cop and independent crafter who started crafting as a way to help her through the realisation of not being able to go back to work due to being injured on duty.

So what do u want to know?

An ex cop who got injured on duty and had to be retired through ill health pension at 37!

Had no idea what to do with my life but started crafting as a way to help me through the realisation I couldn't do the job I loved anymore.

Began painting second hand furniture and making fabric notice boards. A friend suggested I try sewing to use up the scraps of fabric I had left over from my notice boards so I gave it a whirl and haven't looked back since.

The furniture up cycling has taken a back burner as I prefer to sew (who knew!) and I have branched out into a variety of handmade items, my best sellers at craft fairs being tote bags, pin cushions, beeswax wraps and children's superhero costumes which have been fully tested and comply with CE quality standards.

I'm also the owner of Out of the Ordinary after buying the business back in 2021 and bringing it back to Skipton where it belongs. 😍

Thanks for taking the time to read this and happy shopping!
