Pom Stitch Tassel, which opened its doors in Bovey Tracey on 9th January, has received a visit from the town’s Member of Parliament Mel Stride. The small independent business which initially started with help from the Prince’s Trust, has been running for five years but founder Emma has now taken it to the next level by opening a premises in Fore Street. It realises her childhood dream of opening a craft shop:
“The main ethos behind Pom Stitch Tassel is to inspire the next generation of creatives and bring old crafts back to life. Immersing yourself in something creative is also good for mental health and wellbeing and the last few years have highlighted just how important that is.”
“Bovey is becoming a real hub for arts and crafts and it was lovely to meet Emma and wish her well in her new premises in Fore Street.”
Pom Stitch Tassel sells their own range of pom pom kits as well as other small business craft kits and handmade wares, all made in the UK. It also runs craft parties, after school clubs, workshops and sewing lessons from their new space at 53 Fore Street. It is open from 10am - 3:45pm Tuesday to Friday and from 9am - 2pm on Saturdays.
