We are Charlotte & Vicky. Through a love of learning BSL we became firm friends. Here at the The Worble Shack we create handmade British Sign Language Scrabble Tile Frames and Gifts.
In 2017, we enrolled on a British Sign Language (BSL) level 1 course at Grantham college and our friendship blossomed over our love of crafting as well as Sign Language. We then continued on to study BSL level 2 but Covid halted our level 3 studies. In 2019, a fellow student invited us to her wedding and we hunted for a gift that incorporated BSL but couldn’t find anything with a personal touch so we decided to create our own. This gift received so many compliments so the seeds of the business were planted and we opened our Etsy store in September 2019. Things have just taken off from there with over 200 bespoke orders lovingly made and sent out, even as far afield as Australia! You can also find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We put a lot of care into creating British Sign
Language Scrabble tile frames and gifts for any occasion. These can be personalised and we take the time to work together with all our clients to create their vision.
We entered and won the Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday (#SBS) award in March 2020.
We have also been awarded the Jacqueline Gold CBE #WOW which champions female entrepreneurs and we were selected as the Small Business Saturday top 100 small businesses in 2020, (which is held on the first Saturday of December.) We have also recently been invited, by Alison Lewis, to display our products in her gallery at Belvoir Antiques and Interiors.
