It all started in Naheed's apartment in Leeds where she returned to her passion of crafting and getting more involved with mindfulness, crafts and arts as a way to manage her chronic pain condition, Fibromyalgia. Naheed's mum is a legend when it comes to sewing, cooking and knitting so it is no surprise that Naheed is a true foodie and has a passion for all things crafty!
What was initially a hobby, like many crafters eventually turned into a small business through making gifts for family and friends and then moving to a shop on Etsy and Folksy. Naheed's passion lies in origami, postcards and paper floristry. She designs wellbeing prints and postcards to encourage wellness, mental health awareness and disability awareness as a passionate disability rights advocate. You can find a range of Naheed's artwork to purchase on our site.
Naheed's Sparkle is a leading craft, arts and wellbeing events organising business that many locally in Yorkshire will know of with a range of fairs/markets and art exhibitions. We also host online markets and are proud of working with our local and small businesses to help them to grow, network and market their amazing makes to a large crowd and supportive local communities of all ages! This has expanded to York, Manchester and Sheffield venues.
Naheed also teaches local mindful crafting workshops in Leeds, incorporating relaxation and mindfulness techniques with a range of crafts. She teaches bookbinding, colouring, flower making and mindful journaling through a social meet up of like minded adults and also mindful journaling classes for children. Naheed's Sparkle has collaborated with local small businesses, local charities and brands including Collins Debden, We are IVE and Sweaty Betty, Leeds.
