Well known for her skills in crafting, Dawn Bibby and her husband JJ divorced on 5 January 2011. She now lives with her three dogs and two pygmy goats in Lancashire, England.
Dawn Bibby studied Textiles and Fashion at university and ventured into business designing and manufacturing handmade and decorative knitwear. This led her to supply the craft materials needed for her products and she soon expanded into other crafting areas. She was so successful, that in 1994 she opened her store called Topaz Crafts in Oswaldtwistle Mills.
Finding it difficult to balance everything going on in her life and with some health issues, Dawn Bibbly recently decided to close down her store in September 2012. She claims this will allow her to focus on other things, such as developing her own Dawn Bibby Designs.
