What is St Luke's Hospice?

St Luke's is a hospice which cares for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. Their aim is always to control the patients symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge. It costs £6 million per annum to keep St Luke's open, and government funding, via NHS trusts only provides one third of the funds required, which means the Hospice has to raise a staggering £4 million each year to provide this vital end-of-life care.

This challenge was set up by a St Luke's Supporter who has seen first hand, the amazing care given to patients through St Luke's and whilst donations are now closed we would like to thank all our donators for their wonderful contributions.

We are Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea and have always crafted (card making, scrapbooking, cross stitching, cake decorating, soft toy making etc) .  We love ribbons and all things pretty, but because we only needed a little bit of ribbon and a little bit of lace instead of the whole reel or pack which was offered for sale in the shops, we opened our own online shop in 2010 so we could make small quantities easily available to all crafters.  We are happy to supply very small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, buttons, fancy pins, charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. We stock only the best quality products such as Divine Twine, Berisford, May Arts, Zva and only offer for sale goods that we would personally buy and use ourselves.
