Karen Delahunty Sewing & Knitting Centre Turns 3!
Can you believe that we have been up and running for 3 years now? Where has that time gone!
We're so thrilled to be celebrating our third birthday at the shop, so we thought it would be a really fun idea to put together our birthday window display, complete with balloons, pom poms and a little black dress with a lot of sparkle!
We really can't thank all of our lovely customers enough.
It is thanks to all of you that we are able to continue supplying the local community (and beyond) with lovely fabrics and quality haberdashery items.
We're so grateful to have such wonderful support from you all and we couldn't be happier doing what we do.
Thank you to all of you, whether you pop in for a chat every now and again or shop with us most days of the week, we think you're all wonderful and we couldn't have achieved the feat of 3 years in business without you!
