So, we are TWO!! In fact we were two years old in September 2016, but we decided to wait a couple of months as we have some more fun things to share with you guys. Over the summer, we have been working hard to develop another space towards the back of the store which will be used as a sewing and knitwear studio for Sinéad, the co-owner of the store, for her to create some of her EssenC Knitwear pieces. We will also be running a sewing school with workshops and classes for all ages. A schedule for this can be found on the main homepage of our site - "Sewing School" and if you have any questions, please get in touch with us via our "Contact Us" page. We will be happy to help and show you around these new spaces on the day. 

In the mean time, we're having a party and you're all invited to celebrate with us. From 11am - 5:30 pm on Decemeber 17th we will have business as usual but with some twists  - raffle prizes, colouring competitions, in-store discounts. The from 6pm - 10pm we will have two Irish musicians join us to sing and play for us, all traditional music until the wee hours. We will have a selection of beer and wine for you to enjoy with some Irish soda bread and other goodies.
