About Touchwood

     Craft Storage box

        Jewellery Box

'Touchwood' is since 1998 a small family run business where we make Sewing and Craft Storage Workboxes & Jewellery boxes. During the past years we have sold many boxes via specialist Craft magazines, and online where our products are often featured and covetously talked about. Yes they are quite expensive but that is a reflection of our quality.

We have recently moved house to larger premises and are now in a position to offer a bigger and better range of  'Ready made'  & 'Made to Order' Craft Storage Boxes. 'Touchwood' are focused on providing the best possible products with the highest levels of customer satisfaction – we will do everything we can to meet your expectations and beyond.

Touchwood's History.

It all started quite a few years ago when my wife Jean's Cross Stitching hobby had got to the stage of taking over the house with plastic boxes, bags and drawers full of essential bits & pieces. (definitely NOT junk!! - Jean said)

"Ok" I said I will buy you a nice box for Christmas to keep all you treasures in ---- Because you are looking at our website I am sure you must know how difficult it is to find Craft Storage Boxes that are practical, durable and a nice piece of furniture ---- I failed miserably.

"Ok" I said being an acomplished cabinet maker I will make you one, but you will have to help me design it !. ( I ended up buying Jean something else for that Christmas plus an IOU ! )

Jean and her fellow Cross Stitchers took a very keen interest and became deeply involved in the various designs and prototypes, until it reached the stage  when it was deemed good (for a bloke) and they all wanted one ---- and wouldn't it be a good idea to sell them to other cross stichers, but if you could 'just' add this and --- being a well trained husband ---- "Ok" I said.

That was the start of the arduous process of how we ended up with this website to offer you our pride & joys on-line. 

Touchwood has gone from strength to strength since we first started, but we are still a small friendly family run business, where Jean is the cross stitcher, general orgainiser and boss,  me - husband Roy & elder daughter Emma hand craft our beautiful and practical boxes for the individual needs of the discerning enthusiast. Youngest daughter Claire models our products and son James is the Touchwood Web Master.

We have recently semi-retired and moved house to one with a larger workshop in the garden where we are now in a better position to make & offer our Craft Storage & Jewellery Boxes with a faster turn around from order, with the traditional  'Touchwood'  quality products & service. Although we now offer a faster delivery from order, it still gets busy at times, but pease be assured we will always do our very best to please. We look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Best Regards

Roy, Jean & family
