Cartwheels Easter Event

On Good Friday and Easter Saturday we will be holding an Easter Event.

This will include the launch of Troutbeck Plants and Nursery who will be having a permanent sales area at Cartwheels.  If anyone has purchased some of their lovely plants at our previous craft fairs they will realise the quality of their perennials, shrubs, bedding, hedging, herbs, palms and more.

We will also be launching our ‘Mezzanine’ area where there will be permanent sales of art and craft products from our talented local people.

This two day event will be from 9.30am – 4pm each day with tea, coffee and homemade cakes available.  Don’t forget we have ample free off road parking with disabled access and facilities.

Sewing Retreats at Cartwheels

We recently welcomed a group of sewing ladies on their second ‘Sewing Retreat’ at Cartwheels.  They took over Winnow Barn and took advantage of the spacious 42′ long lounge and converted it into a extra large sewing studio. 

We added additional tables and chairs to the kitchen so that the work stations in the lounge didn’t need to be interrupted at meal times.

If they ran out of supplies while they were here, of course they could simply pop across the lawn to Cartwheels Patchwork & Quilting Shop to find a wide selection of fabrics, thread, wadding, notions and much more.

During their stay, the ladies were welcome to join in with any of the activities that were going on in the Craft Centre such as sewing groups or workshops.

So if you belong to a sewing group, or if you have a group of friends with a shared interest of sewing, and would like to spend some quality time enjoying your hobby away from the phone, the washing, the ironing or even the husband then contact Julia via the contact form or on 01579 343675 / 340026 to check prices and availability.


We are holding a 4 day deal 3rd – 6th January with 15% off everything!

Fabric, wadding, notions, bags, cushions and yes WORKSHOPS!

Please call into the shop or make payment over the phone to take advantage of the discount for workshops.
