East Molesey handmade women's knitwear suits Theo Paphitis
#SBS (Small Business Sunday) boost from Theo Paphitis
Retail entrepreneur and ex-dragon Theo Paphitis gave my Surrey-based handmade women's knitwear business a Twitter Boost when I became one of his #SBS (Small Business Sunday) winners last year. #SBS (Small Business Sunday) is a weekly competition set up by retail entrepreneur and self-confessed shopkeeper Theo Paphitis. Theo re‐tweets 6 winning businesses each week to his almost 500,000 followers and offers business and PR support to #SBS winners as part of his enthusiastic and multi-faceted support for UK small businesses.
My #SBS winners certificate
I was proud to be awarded my #SBS winners certificate by Theo in person at the winners conference in Birmingham earlier this year. I was also offered the opportunity to sell my handmade women's knitwear through ShopSBS, the new #SBS members 'shop' website.
So from now on, in addition to my own web site, you can also find my knitwear here at: http://www.shopsbs.co.uk/susanholtonknitwear
Hundreds of winners are now selling thousands of products, from unique gifts and bespoke knitwear to pet toys and jewellery. It is another opportunity for #SBS winners to turn Theo’s support into sales.
The Elmbridge Magazine press coverage
I am delighted that one of my stylish local Magazines - The Elmbridge Magazine - wrote a piece on my handmade knitwear and my #SBS win. I love their title choice: 'Jumper for Joy' (I would never have thought of that...). It has been lovely to have recognition of my win locally in East Molesey.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you'd like to know more.
