Bronwen and Bob Mills moved to The Old Bakery in 1983. They soon established a sugarcraft business alongside the village tearooms which were already a popular attraction. As a British Sugarcraft Guild member since 1984, Bronwen knew at first hand the tools and equipment which were to be essential items in every sugarcrafter’s workbox.
As the business grew Bob made good use of his many trips abroad and discovered the Japanese craft market. The variety and quality of the Japanese stamens impressed him so much that it was not long before The Old Bakery began to import them. Today they not only supply many other shops worldwide but they attend most of the major sugarcraft shows with a wonderful selection of stamens.
In 1997 The Old Bakery became the UK supplier of Sunrise wires. These are recognised by many people as the finest quality florist wires available.
