WE MAKE IT - Maker of the day Little Owl Crafts

The People Who Make It....

Heather of Little Owl Crafts can usually be found at Handmade Arcade spinning away, her hand-dyed fibres becoming beautiful, colourful, unique balls of yarn...

It sounds like a blissfull existence - living on a farm in the hills surrounding the valley, transforming Dartmoor sheep coats into the most beautiful, warm and different hand-dyed and spun yarns... Heather's partner runs a recording studio, so not only is she surrounded by natural goodness and the unbeatable Devon countryside - she's also surrounded by locally crafted music! Win win, and win!

Wool shopping can be pretty hard nowadays in this town, but luckily for us heather is at most Handmade Arcade Markets and has a very loyal following of knitters, felters and crafters. She also stocks her wool in McCoys Arcades crafty shop Good Golly Miss Molly! For those out of reach of the Devon hills Little Owl Crafts has an Etsy shop and a facebook page so her hand-spun goodness is never too far out of reach!

Heather is mostly pre-occupied with eco-friendly home-building and ways to go back to the land from which we came, she has a fondness for inventive green design and a penchant for creative and crafty ideas - she's a huge part of the Handmade Arcade collective and you can catch her and all the rest of the crew at the next Handmade Arcade on the 6th April!

In other news..... Exeter has been proven to be the 4th happiest place in the country and number 1 for neighbourliness! - I'm pretty sure the Handmade Arcade bunch and all the local super-heros this city boasts has a lot to do with this! 

Happy Making!

See you on Saturday April 6th!
