The Bothered Owl

Alex and Sarah's crafty corner of cyberspace

About Us August 2, 2009

Sarah and Alex are two Australians. We used to run The Bothered Owl. However, this is no longer the case, as Alex has moved home to Brisbane, Australia.


Alex can now be found as The Quizzical Owl. She still sells Lego stitch markers and jewellery. She is also expanding her range to include hand dyed yarn, Scrumptious yarn from Fyberspates, and pattern books from the lovely Ysolda.


Sarah is still in the UK, and is now the Undercover Owl. She makes project bags for knitters, and stitch markers too.


Come and see us in our new ventures!

    Dear Sarah,
    I would love to see your hats on the website. I know lots of people interested in seeing them.
    Love Lisa

    Hi – I’m about to start writing a column for Brockley Central blog on local craftspeople and was wondering whether you’d be interested in being featured/ having a chat about your work? Thanks Nicola

    Greetings! I saw your shop on Etsy (Custom made Broad Brim Sun Hat) and was wondering if you are still making these? I lost my favorite red hat a few months ago and cannot find a replacement. I have a photo of it and it looks very similar to the ones on your Etsy sight. Thank you!

    • Hi
      We certainly are still making them. I’ve just finished a couple of custom orders this week and I’m more than happy to embark on another one!
      If you drop us an email ( thebotheredowl AT ) and let me know colour preferences, sizing and so forth and I can certainly make you something.
