Crafts by the Sea loft shop & website

Been a bit busy of late, what with the upturn in the weather from low temperatures for this time of year to a mini heat wave this week.  The running has been abandoned for a few days, the poor plants at the allotment are all gasping for water and the grass have grown a zillion feet since last week.  So early this morning I went up the allotment to cut the grass & water.  Just watered the veggies I’m growing at home and now I’m my own person for the rest of the day apart from this afternoons dog walk.

I have been putting together a website to sell my handcrafted items.  Which takes more time than you ever expect.  I was just finishing it when I spoke to my good friend Jane Colquhoun, whom I’m not seen in person for a couple of weeks as she is getting ready for Purbeck Art Week (PAW) and Dorset Art Weeks.

Purbeck Art Week

It turns out that now she has had her attic converted into a studio she doesn’t really need her studio at the The Boiler House Gallery in Corfe and was wandering about giving it up – we both had a EUREKA moment and came up with the idea of using her studio as a shop for our crafts.  The fine details have not been sorted but the Collective who run the gallery have agreed to her running a shop from there and for the shop to become part of the collective.  The shop will be above their public gallery/shop. Which is such great news.

So….after the studio has been used as a gallery for Purbeck Art Week we shall be setting up as a shop to compliment our website & shop , Facebook page and face book shop.

Will keep you all posted, lots of work to be done in the next month including making some stock.
