What's happening..?



Goodness, can anyone tell me where last year went and how Christmas crept up so quickly!?!?

We find ourselves already in 2020 with a fresh new year ahead of us.

I'll be catching up on website updates over the next few weeks.  Lots of interesting changes within the shop, sellers going, new ones joining, new displays, new workshops........It's all very exciting.  Head over to our Facebook page or Instagram page for regular up to date info - links can be found at the bottom of the page.


Are we seriously in July already!?  This round up is slightly late in that case!  As always, one day merges with the next and before you know it the months have past...

Birthday- We have celebrated our 3rd birthday.  We had a week of special offers and a party at the shop on 10th July.  It was lovely to see so many of our crafters and customers come to celebrate with us.  We ran a raffle with very kind donations from our crafters, we raised a fabulous £200 for Chemogiftbags.  So thank you to all that bought tickets and well done to Victoria and Lisa who won the amazing hampers, each worth over £240!!

Workshops/Meet the Maker- We've started our Saturday sessions where you can have chance to meet some of our crafters, learn about what they do and join in and make things yourself too!! See the table below for info, dates and times.

Sellers - We only said goodbye to one seller this quarter Kat of Malwa with her Needle Felted items. 

4 of our existing crafters have expanded their space and ranges.

  • Steph of Stephanie Block Contemporty Art is now selling t-shirts and hoodies with some of her most popular designs on
  • Kath of Kitty Ricco is now selling her frames sewn artworks as well as her cards
  • Jo of Made By Me Loved By You has introduced a range of resin button jewellery.  You can interchange parts to match each outfit you are wearing!
  • Dilys of Pure Fairtraid has taken extra space so she has more hanging ornaments and some larger items too
  • Emma of The Handmade Craft Company (that's me!) has finally brought in some fabric wreath kits.

We also said hello to a brand new crafter Rachel of My Aurelia Rose.  Rachel has joined the shop with her range of My School Buddy - these are fabric dolls made as a comfort for the start of a new school year.   They can be bought off of the shelf or made to order with skin, hair and eye colour to match your child aswell as matching school uniform too!

Take a look at our Facebook page for lots of up to date pictures...
