Hello everyone – I’m afraid it’s a late one as I’ve been mulling and planning and deliberating all day and I must admit to having a bit of a wobble but I think I have a plan.. as it seems sensible in light of all the craziness, with news reports and directives changing every day so I’ve decided that we will stay open and carry on with the current planned workshops, there are a few new workshops which have been agreed with artists and I’m happy to post them here, but no more until we see how the situation evolves.
I know many of you come to Betty’s because it’s a nice place to be, other like-minded, crafty souls come here and we’re a friendly bunch. I’d like to think that during this uncertain period we can continue being a little haven. Obviously we’ll follow government guidelines, and If you’re poorly and in self isolation, stay at home and follow us on Facebook for updates – even me doing an online tutorial to keep you entertained! I’ll be uploading more items to the online shop and will add photos to the Facebook page of items that can be posted out. If you’re not on Facebook then email me or call the shop – I’m very accommodating!
Despite all of the above I must now tell you that both the Shop and Tearoom will actually be closed for 3 days from tomorrow, Monday 16th and reopen on Thursday 19th March, nothing to do with the virus – urgent repair work being carried out on underground pipes. With the water off and the car park filled with construction vehicles we feel that the safety of customers comes first.
I don’t feel as if I’ve been very cheery in this missive – but it’s important, people are ill and have died. As I write this our own sewingista sista (Jacqui) is in quarantine in a hotel room in Hanoi City – Hello Jacqui! (I know she’s bored because she’s been whatsapping me at 3am) and Sophia’s crochet cruise has been cancelled again.
Please keep safe all of you, wash your hands, don’t panic buy (unless it’s sewing related) listen to an Archers omnibus and KEEEEP Crafting.
As usual thanks for your support
