AN entrepreneur has branded the opening of her craft shops as a dream come true.

Lisa Parsonson will be opening the doors to Brantham Mills Crafts next Monday.

She is aiming to bring together the arts and crafts community to all share their talented works.

The shop, based in Brantham Mill Industrial Unit, Bergholt Road, will be open Wednesday to Monday from 10am – 4pm.

Mrs Parsonson said: “This day will see the peak of a long standing ambition of mine to run my own shop and bring together very talented crafters and makers under one roof.

“With 60 crafters and makers there will be a wide variety for sale from needle felted items, ceramics, glass and jewellery, to cushions, cards, and crocheted snuggle buddies.

“For the future we will be running workshops and look forward to passing on new skills and inspiring others to have a go.

“With the newly decorated unit and the shelves filling up, it’s beginning to look fabulous and I, at last, am seeing my dream starting to come true.”
