One Galway shop is benefiting from the renewed interest in creative past-times of yesteryear.
One positive effect of the recent downturn is the renewed interest in such fulfilling hobbies.
People are returning to growing vegetables and taking pleasure in cooking produce from their own gardens.
There has also been an increase in the uptake of crafts such as sewing, knitting and crochet and this has been aided by an enthusiastic internet community, eager to share ideas and techniques.
One Galway shop, LolaRose on Middle Street, Galway stocks a beautiful range of yarns and colourful cotton fabrics, along with a wide choice of pattern books to suit all abilities. Contact Ger at 091-566972 or e-mail [email protected]
Meanwhile for those who wish to hone their knitting skills, the Galway School of Knitting is currently running knitting classes. For details contact [email protected]
