Hi All,

Well, I am currently sat in an office oppsite the Royal Mail sorting office in Knutton and I have just spent the last hour firstly being directed to the old CC forum and reading the goings on, to eventually getiing here! I feel like I know you all aready. I last went into Garners to get a Tim Holtz stamp pad and a pack of yellow FIMO in November 08. I had absolutely no idea the store was on the verge of closing, but I am glad you are back. I hope everyone got paid from the other stores.

I have just spent £70 on on a Bind It All and some other bits, as you do! You can tell I have sooo much work to do can't you. Oh, yeah, when researching my BIA, I visited the BIA website, checked the stockists page and it pointed me to the CC store, not sure if you stock any BIA items or even if you are still called CC.

Welcome, glad you made it. Yes we are open , we are now work under the Garners Craft Room. Yes we sell BIA products as well as everything else you might need. Come in and have a look you'll be amazed at the difference from before xmas. It so exciting the staff have been given the go ahead to order what the customer wants rather than what's cheap.
Next time you get a spare hour come in and see what delights we can tempt you with.
lol!

Thanks you guys, it’s good to be here. I will try and pop in some time soon. Good to know you stock BIA, it will save me having to pay for delivery every time I order on line.

I am also pleased the store has now become more customer focused, you all sound very positive. The last time I was in, the staff looked like 'zombies', and I don't mean that in a personal way, I mean you all looked detached. I hope you all go back to loving your jobs.

I can't wait for the arrival of my BIA. I will see how I get on. Husband was exasperated the other day upon receiving yet another parcel full of quilling stuff and said 'You can't do everything at once you know', to which I replied, 'who cares, it’s all shiny stuff and it might come in handy one day'.

Yesterday evening I made my friend a get well soon card using the Forever Friends stamps and water colour paint. It was lovely and I am really impressed with the quality of the stamps.

Right better go and pretend to 'work'. Wish I worked in a craft shop, I'd be the happiest woman alive I tells ya......

Hi Sunny Bunny and welcome to the craft room. Glad that you will be calling in to the shop soon and i can assure you, that as a regular customer (through the good times and the bad) that the staff are reinvigorated and make shopping there a joy.

Where is it that you work ? is it Halstone Mobile Phones or Lancaster etc furniture or even the physio clinic? As i live in Knutton and have done for the past 40 (cough) years then i know the area well and have watched the new units being built.

if you see a strange looking woman walking a black dog in the area its probably me!!!!

You will have to post pictures of some of your crafting on the cardmaking section. I have just had a couple of the forever friends stamps too and find them brilliant.

Hi,

I work at Unit 6, Astraware the HandMark Games Studio, next door to Halstones. Because we are at the back, we don't really see much 'real life stuff' going on. By the way, beware Halstones were robbed a couple of weeks ago, they got in by making a hole in the wall!!! Not a small one at that. It was like a portal to another world. I was just stood there, gob open.

lol, I haven't seen you yet, I will look out for you. I am on the ground floor facing the 'back' i.e, carpark at the rear of the building.
