Our annual closure at Audlem Mill has just ended, and we're open daily from 1 March.
We haven't been hibernating, but have been completely reorganising things, ready for the next 11 years! Amazingly, it's 11 years since we opened Audlem Mill. We have refitted much of the ground floor, reflecting the success of our book publishing venture. Since we started this, we have published 16 books, mostly related to canal history. We sell canal, railway and craft/needlework books, as well as some books by local authors, and they all have a new home at one end of the ground floor.
You'll see several new product ranges of giftware on display on both floors, including some exciting book accessories to complement our range of books. There will be jewellery from a local designer, perfectly on trend for this season's colours, and by request, the return of the popular unstoppable animal doorstops.
We'll also have new bags, mugs and coasters for knitters and crocheters. These new ranges just celebrate our reopening, with more exciting lines to follow, such as a wide range of the superb Rowandean embroidery kits -- so please visit us on a regular basis, more changes are ahead.
Do come and have a look — we're open every day (10.00 — 4.00 in March).
