Hazel and Tim have been liveaboard boaters for several years now having decided to step off the “roundabout”. To keep occupied, Tim rekindled his passion for woodwork and started to do narrowboat joinery and we have fitted out a couple of boats now. Having noticed that our own covers were looking a little tired and after receiving unsatisfactory quotes, Tim went out and bought a sewing machine and sourced the materials required. Having previous upholstery experience and drawing on Tims engineering background he made new covers for our boat. Then a friend asked if we could do theirs, then a neighbour saw that and….well the rest is history.
Through word of mouth the cover making business became full time and Cratch Covers and Canopies was born. We have been lucky that our business has grown this way from a sewing machine in the lounge to having full workshop facilities in Nantwich.
