It’s good news for crafters in Ipswich as a brand new craft and card shop has opened at busy Sailmakers Shopping Centre.
The new arrival is a venture by local businessman Dennis Davis who has run a craft shop in the town before and who also has a café, the Dark Horse, in the town’s Westgate Street.
He said: “Crafts is a growing market and we’ve got a wide range of stock as well as a fantastic range if cards including blank cards for people to put together their own designs as well.
“We’re an independent business and that was what also attracted us to Sailmakers because they have a mix of high street names and small local stores as well.”
The new shop is being run by local person Shannon Gilles and her mum, Ann.
