MY BASKET

Some of you will already know Amanda Bloom from her award winning crochet subscription box, Little Box of Crochet.

For a long time Amanda dreamt of opening a bricks and mortar craft shop, in order to spread the crafting love as far as she could.

After the death of her beloved daughter, Jenny, the time seemed right to return to the place where she grew up and finally open her dream shop.

On September 21st 2019, Amanda opened the doors to Craftopia in Ingleton, a gorgeous Yorkshire Dales village, nestling on the borders of North Yorkshire, Cumbria, and Lancashire. Amanda spent her childhood years here so opening Craftopia has been like coming home.

Cake and Craft Morning

***UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE HAD TO STOP CAKE AND CRAFT FOR NOW BUT HOPE TO RESUME VERY SOON***

Every Monday morning at 11am we get together for a couple of hours of crafting together. You can bring whatever you’re working on….knitting, crochet, sewing etc. We have hot drinks, biscuits or cake.

There is no charge but if you want to you can give a donation to go in our Guide Dogs For The Blind Box. We finish at roughly 1pm but if there isn’t anything else happening that day I don’t mind if you stay longer. Hope to see you soon,

Amanda xxxx
