Steffi Stern owns Mother Goose craft shop and events space in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. She was born in Germany and, encouraged by her mother’s own passion for knitting and crochet, enjoyed the German handcraft tradition at a young age. Steffi is now the mother of four children and continues to craft with and for them. Inspired by her love of good quality materials and commitment to making meaningful handicrafts, she founded Mother Goose in 2010.
