I read this morning about a new crafting venture in Ilkley. Duttons for Buttons, a wonderful emporium of haberdashery in the town, closed down quite a while back and the little shop remained empty. Now it is to become a crafting venue, Mrs Duttons Wondrous Workshops.
That’s such good news, we are not getting another in every high street chain, a charity shop or a coffee shop. There are a lot of workshops on the list for all abilities, knitting, embroidery, macrame, appliqué, rug making, and best of all crochet for beginners, maybe I can finally learn. There are also crafternoon tea sessions with goodies supplied by a local bakery and deli, must be careful not to get my work sticky.
Now I really need to get back to ilkley to check this out, I’m sure it’s a valid reason for travel.
