Blackrock Yarn Shop and Quilt Shop

Scruffy’s mum discovered her local yarn shop, Winnie’s Craft Café, located in Blackrock, Ireland.

It’s a lovely little shop with a café in the back. Scruffy’s daddy likes to hang out here nibbling chocolate muffins while mummy shops.

Marina, the owner, and her colleague Jackie are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They have a good selection of yarn, as well as some cross stitch and other craft supplies.

Within walking distance of Winnie’s is a little quilt shop, Floppy Fabrics, operated out of a tiny room of the owner’s home. Like ScruffyQuilts, Floppy Fabrics is also named after the owner’s dog.  Lovely gardens to enjoy along the way.

I lost my head a bit in both places – doing my part to support the Irish economy!
