East Molesey handmade women's knitwear suits Theo Paphitis

“Original contemporary knitwear for real women of all ages, shapes and sizes”.
Susan Holton Knitwear's winning tweet to 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.

I wrote a piece about Theo Paphitis and #SBS when I won the competition last year, and you can read a little more information there.

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.

“We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK.  My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website and Shop #SBS will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Susan Holton Knitwear every success”.
