Covid-19 update:

 We are still running reduced classes.  Steph is running crochet and felting each month on a Saturday.  I am running workshops by request so just let me know what you’d like to do and we can sort a date.  Continue to pop in if you need some ideas or advice, we’d love to see you! ♥

The shop began from the seed of a daydream of a tight Northener who didn’t like throwing things away.  Like many creatives, I had accumulated a rather large stash of fabrics, paints and odd bits from over the years.  People also gave me stuff they didn’t want and I couldn’t bear to see it go to the tip so it got ‘rescued’.   I always loved a good charity shop rummage and thought the concept of clearing your crafty junk for someone else to buy would work well for  fabrics, yarns and arty items that have lain away for donkey’s years!

The shop became a reality in November 2015 and originally was full of pre loved and recycled items that had been bought or dontated or brought down from the loft!  Things took off  and I was quickly running out of stock and had to find some wholesale suppliers.  Later in 2018 due to popular demand, I took on Stylecraft yarns and had to speedily learn how to crochet and knit in order to keep up with my customers!

In 2020, going from strength to strength, both new and pre loved items sit well side by side in this tiny shop filled with stash that everyone calls “A little Aladdin’s Cave”.
