The Old Forge,
Bourton on the Water.
We are an Aladdins cave for the craft minded – we stock a large range of craft supplies, Paper Crafts, Knitting Yarns, Crossstitch & Tapestry Kits, Haberdasery and. . .
People with absolutely no knowledge of weaving can, with the aid of our Cotswold Peg Looms be able to weave.
Although all kits come with either a project or starter pack of yarn to get you underway, most other items to weave will come from the variety of materials normally kept in that box labeled . . . . .”one day I will use that”. . . . . .
At the moment we have six different styles of looms available.

The Maxi this is the daddy of them all and has 50 pegs,
All looms come with full instructions.
NO SEW FRAMES:-
At last a cross stitch frame system that works, as cross stitchers we have seen the pitfuls of using hoops so we have designed a kit that goes from the smallest bookmark to kits upto 38cms wide the bonus is they all work on a roller system, so you are not restricted by length.
Your kits comprises of 2 complete sets plus extra rollers to make up to 4 different sizes, the system allows you to have 2 complete kits on the go at one time (2 different sizes). The bonus is your work sticks to the frame with double sided tape (included in your kit).
We design our own range of knitting kits which include:-
Sock Kits – Baby Cardie Kits – Many Shawls, Wraps and Scarfs
Ipod/Phone Cover – Merino Gloves with Fuzzy Yarn
Adult Fingerless Mitts – Knitted Necklaces with Embellishments to name but a few. . . .
For that unique gift for Birthdays, Christenings, Weddings, other Special Occasions or just to say Thanks, why not have either a Card, Cushion or Bottle Apron individually embroidered to suit the occasion with a name or message of your choice.
We also have embroidered Towels and several ranges of gifts made by us on the premises.
