“Designed and manufactured by crafters for crafters, the ultimate storage solution with limitless possibilities to organise your crafting space”
I am Jo Venison a business partner in Storage 4 Crafts the UK based company behind the development of the inovative Storeaway range of workstations and hideaway cupboards. The company came about because my crafting stash was getting out of hand and taking over the house. I needed a way to keep things organised and have space to work, (my husband wanted to be able to eat dinner off the dining room table more often than Christmas day which was the only time it was clear!).
We investigated storage solutions that were available and found that none met all the requirements of maximising storage space, being manufactured to a high quality and that would look good in any room of the house. Back in 2005 my husband Kevin was running a business designing and manufacturing solid oak and pine furniture, so it was natural step when we decided to design and manufacture our own range of storage solutions.
At the heart of our design process was a family of crafters, my mother is a quilter, my mother in law also sews as well having a keen interest in art and papercraft. I have developed my own interest and now enjoy a wide range of crafts includng sewing and quilting, papercraft and jewellery making. So armed with lots of information on workspace requirements, lighting, equipment sizes and a whole array of crafting goodies Kevin set about designing products that would help to solve the problem of the overflowing house and the dining table we could no longer see let alone use!
Out of this process there has been an evolution of several product ranges culminating in the Store Away range of products which can look great in any room of the house, enabling you to regain that dining room, spare bedroom or office space. Not only do they look great but they have been designed around the hugely popular, durable and strong Really Useful boxes maximising the orgnisation space for all of your supplies. The entire range manufactured by us here in Devon, UK out of the some of the best materials available. A durable melamine faced finish which is wipe clean and will not warp or twist (made of 70% recycled material), as well as some of the best hardware components to ensure a long lasting product backed up by our lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.
We understand that each craft and individual have different needs so we have special editions within the range especially designed to meet your needs. In addition to this we have designed each item with adjustable shelves wherever we can to suit an ever changing array of equipment and supplies.
We have talked a lot about crafting, however we have also found that our products are equally useful wherever keeping supplies organised is important. Indeed we have supplied products to schools, hospitals, IT departments and for use in home offices to name but a few.
So we hope you like the range, a lot of thought and care has gone into its development. The same thought and care that now goes into its manufacture. If you have any questions that we haven’t answered here then we are only a phonecall or an email away and would love to hear from you.
