Left Job for Buttons (business)


We found a great story this week about Joanne Marsh who now runs Wool & Buttons in Cawood, North Yorkshire.



Joanne recently gave up a challenging career as head of Property and Business Services for the Leeds Building Society and turned her life long hobby into a business.


Joanne who has bee quoted as saying “My late mother Pauline inculcated in me a love of cooking, baking, knitting and sewing – all those girly kind of things and I thought I would like to try to make a business out of it so that is what I have done” started her own wool and buttons business in a spare room in her Yorkshire home.


We wish Joanne the best of luck with her venture, if only we could all give up the rat race to turn our sewing, knitting or crafting hobbies into a business!


Joanne has a lovely website which can be found here
