Butterflyloom.ie was set up in the middle of 2014 by two Arklow women, Elizabeth Condren and Patricia Doyle, who have always had an avid interest in knitting and crochet.
Having literally stumbled across the Buterfly Loom boards on the internet, but having to go as far afield as Australia to source the boards, we quickly discovered the advantages of using the boards to come up with all kinds of wonderful creations and the simplicity of using the boards by people with no or very little knitting or crochet experience!
With knitting and crochet such a very popular hobby and passtime in Ireland, but with no Irish distributor of the boards, we decided that the time was opportune to spread the word in Ireland and reached an agreement to secure the distribution rights for the Butterfly Looms in Ireland.
As well as selling the looms online, we intend to sell the looms at craft fairs around the country and events such as the annual Knitting and Stitching Show in the RDS. For full details make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!!
