Meet the team:



 Barabara McNaughton

“I have been an avid paper crafter and sewist for many years. More recently I began a journey into the wonderful world of mixed media, where I combine my love of both genres. I find I am learning new techniques all the time and love working with the wide range of amazing new products that Hochanda brings to us daily.”

Leanne Mcalpine

“I have been crafting for approx. 27 years since I started my nurse training. I started with cross stitch to see me through night shift and discovered paper craft about 12 years ago. I enjoy card making and have found a love for shabby chic paper crafts, although I also enjoy scrap-booking and making 3D projects. I’m now embracing mixed media… slowly!”


 Lore Green

“Hi, my name is Lore Green and I’ve been crafting since I was very small. My nan brimmed over with creative energy throughout her life and introduced me to so many crafts, such as sewing, cake decorating, papercrafts, pyrography and flower arranging. 










Lesley Moore

I love all Arts and Crafts and can apply myself to nearly all areas in creating. I particularly like Polymer Clay and making Dolls Houses. I have used a medium to make models from used wine bottles, to cement garden ornaments; I also make miniature drawers for gifts MDF Cards. I would like to say I am very good with my hands and imagination.
