Who are Jomil?

For over 30 years Jomil have been a leading supplier to the craft & sewing industry, providing a wide range of products to retailers and manufacturers throughout the UK and Europe. Based in West Yorkshire and still a family run business, Jomil are now one of the UK’s leading independent distributors of sewing and craft products.

Who is Sue Amphlett?

An all round crafter who found a love and passion for all things creative whilst she was growing up, with her parents having a handicraft shop, to developing her skills as she studied soft furnishings and upholstery at night school and then fashion at college.
"My earliest crafting memory is of my mum teaching me to knit when I was just 5 years old - I was hooked!
My first love is sewing - the first thing I remember making was a lime green cotton skirt when I was 11. Unfortunately, I wasn't told to secure the seam ends and so when it was washed for the first time, it started to come a apart.
When my children came along I became an avid knitter - I particularly remember being very proud of a jumper I had knitted with a very intricate willow pattern on the front.

I took up card making in the late 1990s when the craft was in it's infancy and there was nothing much more than peel-offs and coloured paper. Since then I have developed quite a reputation as an expert card maker and have given many demonstrations in stores across the country.

Since 2001 I have been a consultant for Habico, a leading wholesaler of crafting products. I help them with product evaluation, sales staff training and demonstrations at trade shows and exhibitions.

I love sharing my passion for crafting with other people and giving help and advice for resolving crafting related problems. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any help, assistance or guidance."

How To Give Used Candle Jars A New Lease Of Life

Hello again everyone, I have a completely different post for you this time!


I keep buying all this ‘stuff’ and it’s so nice I can’t bring myself to use it … but it’s starting to get out of control and taking over my home!!
So I’m challenging myself on 2 levels – 1) use up my stuff; and 2) try something new.

Well I had some empty candle jars so I thought this would be a good way to use up some stuff and try something new at the same time and this is what I came up with.

I am over the moon with the results as it’s the first time I’ve tried anything like this.

What I used: ·Empty candle jar ·Decoart white gesso ·Starlight paints ·Decoart metallic paints ·Imagination Crafts rice papers ·Imagination Crafts fabric glue ·Twine ·Raffia ·Hessian ·Ribbon ·Paper flowers and embellishments from craft box
Here’s what I did:
Firstly, I applied a coat of white gesso to the jar and allowed it to dry. I then chose a selection of paints that go together and randomly sponged all over the jar until it was covered. T…
