Crafts ‘n’ Coffee, who were previously located on Curtis Walk, have moved to a brand-new premises as they look forward to a bigger and brighter future.
Owners Ann Walker and Darren Parr started the business in April 2021, offering craft workshops and courses in a small shop. It became obvious that more room was needed so a move was necessary.
There is now space for more course materials and tools, alongside a new large screen monitor to show people at the far end of the workshop what is being demonstrated.
Ann commented on how quickly she fell in love with the new premises. She said:
“We went along for a look and fell in love with a room that we thought would be perfect for us. A few days later we’d signed up and were moving our masses of stuff in from the 28 August.
“In the middle of the move we also did a five-day show down at Sandringham! But we’re in now and the space is ideal. I can now take over 8 students in a much bigger room.”
To celebrate their move, they are holding an opening day on Saturday 30 September 2023 from 10am until 3pm for anyone who wishes to come and see where they are and what they do, with refreshments provided.
Looking forward to the future, Ann has scheduled in lots of new workshops and courses over the coming months. She said:
“We have a whole week of Halloween workshops for the kids over half-term. The adult workshops include the firm favourites like fused glass, stained glass, bookbinding, wire jewellery making and no-sew ornaments.
“I’m also planning more completely new workshops which we didn’t have space for before. Such as, a workshop for those who have had a sewing machine for years but not even taken the lid off!”
Crafts ‘n’ Coffee are also planning a get-together for people to bring their own projects along to either get help with them or to just enjoy the company of other like-minded people.
Chairman of West Lindsey District Council, Cllr Stephen Bunney expressed his congratulations to Crafts ‘n’ Coffee. He said:
“It’s great to see another successful local business in Gainsborough expanding and going on to achieve great things. We wish Craft’s ‘n’ Coffee the best in their adventure and we hope people attend their opening day and learn some new skills.”
