About Lisa Dobbs, Founder of Wee Woolly Wonderfuls

In the video, Lisa shares her inspiring journey as a small business owner in the creative industry. Faced with the challenge of balancing her desire to fit work around the needs of her young son whilst still pursuing her passion, Lisa sought a solution that would allow her to turn her creative talents into a successful business venture.

With the vision of establishing a sustainable business, Lisa turned to Amazon Handmade, recognizing its potential as a platform to reach a wider audience. By joining Amazon Handmade, Wee Woolly Wonderfuls experienced a remarkable transformation. What began with selling just 10 kits a week quickly escalated to packaging, selling, and dispatching an impressive 100 kits per day!

The film was created after a full day of filming with 5 team members from Global Fire Creative. They spoke to Lisa about Wee Woolly Wonderfuls and filmed what goes on in The Woolly Workshop every day from photography, to designing, and packing woolly orders.

They also took a trip to Hull's iconic Humber Bridge for more filming along the rivers edge. It was a fun, enjoyable day, and we were very proud to be selected by Amazon, from thousands of small businesses who sell on Amazon Handmade.

Wee Woolly Wonderfuls' inclusion in Amazon's video celebrating the UK Creative Industries showcases the outstanding accomplishments and Lisa's dedication to transforming her creativity into a successful business venture.
