Fourways1 is the new home of crafts

funkyneedlework-materialRecently opened in the thriving centre of Amble is Funkyneedlework Studio, home to quilter and needlework crafter Josie Dunne. Josie opened her studio in Fourways1, the original Fourways building, and is running quilting classes for people of all ages.

Also moved into Fourways1 is Sandy “The Mad Jam Woman”, who continues to make Pride of Northumbria preserves (and which will still be available to buy at the deli shop on Queen Street).

The two craftswomen join professional mosaic artist Julie Smith who also has a studio in the building.
