February Craft Challenge Winner ~ BSpoke Victoria

13 Mar

I don’t know about you, but I love discovering and finding out a bit more about other crafters and how they started on their crafting journey, I also like having a look at their wider range of products as you never know what unique and beautiful pieces you might discover. 

Last month we discovered B Spoke Victoria and their fab product range of bespoke wooden letters and plaques, they were also voted by you as our latest Craft Challenge Winner, winning our February ~ Winter Blues Challenge, with their gorgeous ‘Together we make a Family’ Plaque.  As part of winning I like to give each winner the opportunity to tell us a bit more about themselves and I am really pleased that they agreed.  So please read on …..

We are a family based business, consisting of my husband and I. Stephen and I began making wooden letters and plaques at the beginning of 2011. He cuts them and I paint and decorate them.

As we started to get busier in summer 2011, we decided it would be a good idea to start looking for someone to help us out by administrating our page on Facebook. This person would take the bulk of the online orders and queries, meaning that Stephen and I could spend more time completing orders and getting them shipped out to our customers. We managed to find Kirsty who is very dedicated in helping our business bloom. We are very happy to have her as part of our team.

We are based in Huncote, Leicestershire. We currently run our business from home, meaning that we are often busy working into the early hours of the morning.

We sell so many different wooden items. We cater for everyone!

Together we make a Family

Including the winning Craft Challenge piece, this was our newest make. The letters are approximately 6″ high for the tallest ones, and our smallest ones are approximately 3″ high. The plaque it is mounted on is a massive 315 inches by 236 inches plaque. The collage house is A2 in size (23 inches by 17 inches). The house is a replica of the customers actual house, but collaged. The picture really does not show the sheer size of it. It was a huge challenge but we were so happy with the outcome, as was the customer.

There are collage letters for the harder person to buy for. These are done with your own photographs which are sent to us by email.

These are our fully bespoke toy boxes;

Boys and girls letters, door plaques as well plaques and letters for you to decorate your home with.

We also offer many different fonts for weddings, to place on the head table or cake table. These are extremely popular and are available in a range of different fonts.

I don’t think it is essential to take up training or courses within this line of work, but it will help if you’re wanting to take the business further and it may help you to open your mind and think outside the box more, so you can continue to provide your customers with different makes that are unique to everyone else.

We have started moving forward with our business and our future plans are consisting of now designing and making bespoke kitchen doors using water resistant MDF and painting in new ranges of colours and styles like Annie Sloan and milk paints, we are also incorporating the odd piece of furniture using distressed techniques and we have recently started attending craft shows with our products and applying for online craft fairs.

To contact us, you can find us on Facebook and we also have our own website:

Find us on Facebook BSPOKE VICTORIA 

Or on our Own Website 

As you can see from above, we do plan to keep extending our business and not just rely on Facebook, so hopefully we’ll start appearing in all directions soon 🙂

Thanks for your interest and for voting for us as your winners.
