Crafty bargains to be had this Saturday 26th January 2019 at the Clever Betsy Sale.

Head to 40 West Street with plenty of cash. All proceeds from the sale generate much needed funds to keep the project running. The Clever Betsy Sale is a popular event for local crafters.

For those of you that are new to ECHO, Clever Betsy is a long standing day opportunity. Each day participants are supported by Staff and Volunteers to sort donated stock and turn it into beautiful crafts items for the shop which is open to the public.

Everyone works at their own pace and are helped to try new ideas or improve skills. For those enjoy the retail side of things there is plenty of work serving customers and keeping the shop at its best.

Clever Betsy is known for their innovative and creative window displays. This colourful shop certainly stands out at this end of town and brings a smile to many faces.

and if you’re having a sort out of art and craft materials do keep them in mind. They are always in need of more to use in the workshop or repackage to sell on to other keen crafters.

Another highlight are the ECHO weavers. A small group that meet every Friday 1.30 – 4 to weave on traditional looms. The standard of the work is very high and they are invited to demonstrate at local fairs and events. Commissions are undertaken and they sell the work they produce in the Clever Betsy shop.

The shop is open Monday – Friday 10 – 4pm and on most Saturday mornings 10 – 1. Visitors are very welcome.
