I have always been a maker, I have made everything from papier-mâché puppies to stencilled postcards but yarn has always been my staple medium for making – be that in knitting or in crochet. Crochet, in latter years, has taken the largest chunk of my maker energy as I always have to be ahead with new ideas for my classes and workshops and then there is the odd pattern that runs off the hook too.
Crochet Flower Headbands & Scarf In Flax and Wool

I am often asked if I sell my work, which I have not done much but that is all changing now as I have started selling my crochet in Deirdre Minogue’s Sale Shop in Tinahely, Co Wicklow which is full to the brim with gorgeous and distinctive clothes at reduced rates.
I have a nice space in the shop where my unique crochet is on display. At the moment I have focused on pretty flower hair-bands along with scarves, hats and some fingerless mittens too – and there are hand knit socks on offer as well! Everything is made in natural fibres be that flax, wool, cotton, alpaca, silk and mohair and many are one off pieces, never to be replicated. My stock and range will build up as I get the hook going.
The shop is located on Bridge Street in Tinahely, just on the left as you enter the village from the bridge and it’s open every Friday and Saturday from 11am – 5pm. I will be manning the shop on Saturdays and I hope you will join me, come in and say hello, I’d love to see you there!
I will be selling items in my Etsy Shop too, however, for the moment, I have to focus on making, but I will let you know when I have stock available on Etsy too.
Note: Regular crochet classes are still available, details can be found here!
