Just moved to a new premises in Killarney earlier this year, The Crafty Alley stocks a full range of artists materials, cardmaking and scrapbooking supplies, jewellery making, knitting and needle craft as well as education supplies.
But it's the great range of bits and bobs haberdashery every crafter loves to assemble, eg beads, ribbons, bag handles, teddy safety eyes, that keeps you in the shop!
All of which are available through their online shop, www.craftyalley.com
They have a workshop area in the shop, where they run a series of workshops and classes throughout the year, both for adults and kids, from jewellery making to scrapbooking.
They graciously hosted the 2009 World Wide Knit in Public Day, which was a great success, (despite the intermittent showers!), and they plan on starting a knitting circle in September 2009.
So, check out their website and blog for further details.
