To all of our customers,

Our layout will ensure that we follow the government regulations for 2 metre distancing. We will be sanitising baskets and trolleys and encouraging as little touching of goods as possible. I would like to assure you that we have introduced all of the measures necessary to keep both you and our colleagues healthy.

Sadly we won’t be able to hold Workshops, Craft Club or Demonstrations for a little while longer but the team are here to help you as much as possible with any queries that you have or
help you may need.

Please note our new opening hours, introduced while things start to return to something like normal! We are open 5 days a week - closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, but open for longer on those 5 days.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Free Demonstrations:

In light of the government advice, we are suspending our Workshop and Demonstration programme until further notice. We are really sad to have to do this as we know how much you love these dates in your diary and promise that we will bring them back as soon as the government allows. Howeever, the health and safety of our customers is paramount.

In the meantime we remain open and will be delighted to see you. Be assured that we are doing everything to maintain a healthy store, following all the guidelines as far as cleaning is concerned, and in fact doing even more.

Should you not wish to visit in person, just telephone 01772 880852 and we can take your order and send it out to you, or you can arrange collection by a neighbour, friend or family member.

Alternatively, you can shop online at or call 01772 272572 where you will find many of the lines that we have in-store.

Stay safe!
