Hello all,

I'm off to Dumfries on saturday as a birthday treat to go to the Hip knits exhibition at the Museum of Costume http://www.nms.ac.uk/hipknits.aspx

Whilst we are there can anybody recommend any great craft shops/things to see or do/nice resturants/bars?

Thank you!

I'm sorry I missed this... But for anybody off to the Dumfries area I can give a list of a couple of craft-related things for future reference:

1. The biggest and best craft store I've found in Dumfries & Galloway so far is in Castle Douglas, a short drive from Dumfries. It's called Crafts & Crystals and is about midway up the main street, easy enough to find.

2. In Dumfries itself there are two small knitting shops, one on Friars Vennel, the other just down from the Loreburn Centre entrance (walking the opposite direction from the fountain in the town centre). I forget the names of both, but the latter is a knitting pun I rather like.

3. Theres a really good, but slightly small, crafting shop on Friars Vennel called Art-tastic. Its a really good shop and the staff are friendly.

I hope you had a nice trip, I haven't been to the museum myself but hope to go sometime when I'm back there. Smiley
