I've got some exciting news that I've been meaning to share with you for ages – I've found a new home for all St Albans crafty types.
The lovely Charlotte has opened up StudioDelirium in the grounds of the Secret Garden Cafe here in St Albans. She's offering knitting and crochet classes, a weekly Stitch & Bitch session and also selling a delightful array of lovely yarn and crafty accessories, as well as some lovely handmade bits buy local people including myself! Whilst she's starting small she is very keen to meet the needs of all local crafts people, so please go along and talk to her and if there's anything that you'd particularly like her to stock then let her know. There are also plans for more classes hopefully covering handspinning, bobbin lace making and cross-stitch.
Please head over to Charlotte's blog where you can see some of the things that she's been making recently and also find details of the classes that are currently scheduled and if you're passing make sure you pop in and see her. The cafe next door does some delicious cake and when there's a bunch of people in the studio they'll even bring the tea and cake through to you!
StudioDelirium can be found at 9B George Street, St Albans AL3 4ER, in the grounds of the Secret Garden Cafe. Normal opening hours are Tuesday – Friday 10am – 2pm and Saturday 10am – 5pm. The Secret Garden Stitchers meet every Wednesday morning from 10.30am – 12noon. The meeting is free to attend, but there is a suggested donation of £2 to help keep the studio open.
