Indie crafters hit new heights at The Valley

Rob George 5th Aug, 2020

COTSWOLD Needlecraft has opened the doors to its new 1,600 sq ft store which is set to propel their business into an exciting new chapter in its history.

Established in 2004, initially from a wooden kiosk at The Valley, the business has successfully adapted and grown its loyal customer base over the past 16 years.

As well as doubling its previous space to allow it to meet the growing demands of its customers, it will also offer visitors the chance to take part in crafty classes in a dedicated education area.

Adam Spiers, owner of Cotswold Needlecraft, said: “This is a great moment for us to unveil our new larger store at The Valley, we are so proud that this new store can give our customer the space to browse all of our the products for their next crafting project.

Phil Maclean, marketing director at The Valley, said: “It’s personally very satisfying seeing an independent business thriving in this way.

“The success of Cotswold Needlecraft is built on strong foundations of delivering expert, friendly customer service which has attracted a dedicated and local following.

“Welcoming Cotswold Needlecraft into an enhanced space has helped to further establish The Valley as a regional craft destination as well as cementing our commitment to helping develop independent businesses across our retail portfolio.”
