My husband  & I are going to go on a driving holiday this summer (end May/start of June) to Wales and England. We are planning to go to Liverpool, Chester, Bath, Sheffield (maybe), Derby, Shrewsbury(maybe), Hay on Wye among other places. We will be entering and leaving via Holyhead.

Any recommendations for good craft/bead shops in/near these places or in North Wales?

Any crafty happenings that I shouldn't miss?

Thanks Smiley

Chester has The Bead Shop they sell quite a range, they have a website, http://www.the-beadshop.co.uk/.

Derby have a craft shop helpfully named, The Craft Shop, which is in the main part of town so quite easy to find. There are two markets one in the shopping centre called the Eagle Centre Market and there's also the Market Hall which sometimes have some craft stalls, it is mainly needlecraft but you might find something. But the best has to be the Textile Art Studio, www.textileartstudio.co.uk.

Hope that's some help.

I can't help you about the craft/sewing shops but I had to post - I got married in Hay-on-Wye! It's a beautiful place, I hope you enjoy it there  Smiley
