Busy Busy!

The shop at the Heritage Centre is open most days 10am to 4pm ( tides permitting) and is nice and busy….. do visit if you are on the Island.

Guess what the best seller item is for June? Woolly Hats! Closely followed by a new line in Woolly Socks!

The socks will be added to the website soon, but if you pop over to our Facebook page you can see photos of those and another new exciting range…. Garden Wall Art made from rope discarded by the Island Fishermen. The rope would otherwise go to landfill which is a great thing to be able to avoid. A donation from each piece sold will go to benefit the fishermen.

We are open again!

Hoping that 2021 is a better year for us all, but unfortunately we are straight back in a National Lockdown – which has rightly closed all non-essential shops in a bid to combat the surge in cases of Covid19 – but sadly leaves the Heritage Centre and Gift Shop shut here on the Island

However, the Good News is that we are still trading online and sending out orders – so please do get in touch by email or, if you want a friendly voice to answer your questions or place and order then do phone on 01289 389508 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Friday.

What we’ve been doing in the last few days ….

We’ve been busy – answering some emails, posting some parcels, doing some admin but mainly sitting with cosy knitting by the fire with either a box set on the TV or the radio on in the background – starting to build up some stock whilst also playing around with patterns and ideas and making a few items for family- but concentrating on fun items and beautiful colourways to keep us cheerful !
