Craft hub back after Covid closure
By Martin Paul - Senior Reporter
A MICKLETON community craft shop has reopened after a six-month closure due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Run by Jane Addison, Goodsyard Interiors is a market place for creative people across the dale and further afield.
Ms Addison said: “It was hard to close, especially after the second lockdown because I love my shop. I have been looking for new things [during the lockdown].”
Among the new items on sale are The Chateau bone-china mugs.
Ms Addison said: “I think I am the first outlet in Teesdale and I am going to expand the range.
“We are also going to have fresh flowers from Pinks Flower Farm and light shades from Emporium illumination.”
Cobalt Ceramics is also a new addition while former supporters such as sewer Sue Jackson’s handmade items and photographer Martin Rogers’ cards and magnets will continue to be sold.
Eva Gudgeon, a knitter from Middleton-in-Teesdale, has come up with a new design for her range of woollen hats which includes a knitted piece which doubles as a scarf and a facemask.
The shop, which is located behind The Crown pub and restaurant, is open from Thursdays to Sundays, from 11am to 4pm.
