Behind this modest facade you’ll find what could be considered the HQ of the local textile craftspeople – of whom there are many. Twin sisters Catriona and Penelope, who run Jane’s Wool Shop and its lively Facebook page, have a great stock of wools, embroidery threads, cotton, ribbons, quilting materials, zips, daylight lamps, beading bits, buttons and more. Having inherited the shop from their mother and grandmother, they have several lifetimes’ accumulated knowledge and experience and their own artistic gifts are evident all over the shop which now extends from 14 – 18 on Fishguard’s High Street.

P1010963This shop is a reason in itself to travel to Fishguard. You’ll find the inspiration, the materials and the support for your new craft project and I’m sure that in the big coffee shop at the back you’ll find like-minded friendly individuals who’ll know when the local crochet club meets and the best way to achieve neat buttonholes in double-knitting.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.

    I don’t knit or sew but I love shops like this; especially ones with a big coffee shop around the back.
