A NEW one-stop shop to meet all crafts and sewing needs has opened at Oswaldtwistle Mills.

The Craft and Sewing Centre, behind Stockley Sweets, combines two of the Mills’ most popular concessions: Carole’s Crafts and Lord’s Sewing, in a 6,000ft2 space.

Both businesses have expanded and introduced new product ranges to attract old and new customers.

It was officially opened by Debbi Moore from Create & Craft TV, who ran demos for thousands of customers, filling all four of the Mills’ car parks.

Keith Lord, of Lord’s Sewing, said: "The whole centre works perfectly.

“It’s given us the chance to bring in new products and expand many of our ranges.”
