My name is Sarah Betts, & I have always lived locally, though not in Bookham itself. My mother introduced me to Granary Crafts when I was only 13 or 14 years old, I well remember the old shop which was previously situated in Church Road. I love all crafts, particularly paper crafts, knitting, silk painting and tapestry. Crafting - whatever discipline you choose - can be rewarding and relaxing. It can allow your mind to wander freely whilst at the same time creating something creative and unique.
We are in premises on the south side of Bookham with excellent parking, at Grove Corner.
Come and visit, browse, ask questions, if there is anything may want us to keep in the shop, say and we will do our best.
A number of people pop into the shop with questions about their knitting projects and have asked about a Knit and Natter group...so you are very welcome to come along to Granary Crafts on the third Wednesday evening of each month for a knit and a natter or crochet and chatter.
Above is our August window - Granary Crafts has now been transported to more nautical place! Unfortunately, the sun is so strong that it is bleaching products I have in the window, so this month it is a tasteful but minimalist display! It is also so bright out that taking photos is difficult and so this is a number of shots of bits of the window1 We have hand painted seagulls on posts, inspired by time in the Lake District, ofcourse a life belt - we wouldn't want anyone drowning in crafty things- and we sell 3D papier mache letters for decorating, so they are fine in the sun!
