Mad Dog Designs

It's now just over a month since a selection of fabrics were added to the range of lovely yarns available in Mad Dog Designs. The delightful prints have prompted Wendy to dust off the sewing machine and hence there's now a range of reversible children's clothes in the shop too! These can be made to order if what you want is not in stock. Another reason to stop and have a look in Mad Dog Designs, much more than just a wool shop!

'Knit and Natter' crafts sessions Thursdays from 7 - 9pm.

It doesn't have to be knitting, bring along any craft project that's easily transported. It's a great way to share tips and ideas. Workshops on particular knitting and crochet topics available as required.

Contact details, workshops and more information about Mad Dog Designs.
