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.
