Welcome to Scarlet & Clara, thank you for stopping by.

My name is Claire Barber. I live in Northamptonshire with my husband, two children and a housetrained rabbit. I love trying different crafts but my true loves are paper, lettering, lovehearts, and the colour red (hence the ‘scarlet’ in the name).

I started off decorating my own home with different crafts, and inflicted some creations on friends and family!  Their enthusiasm and encouragement led me to branch out and take my wares to a couple of local craft fairs, where I was spurred on by other crafters and visitors’ responses.

It’s a thrill and a privilege to think  that things I’ve made are now part of other people’s homes and lives. And it’s also lovely to get to know aspects of people’s lives and families (whether it be their names, significant occasions and events in their lives like weddings, births, anniversaries or christenings, or important songs to them).

The gallery on this website gives a flavour of the kinds of things I’m up to. If you’d like something for yourself or someone important to you, please get in touch – everything I make is done to order, so we can talk through what you’ve got in mind and come up with something unique and special.
