Christmas is pretty much upon us now, and there’s nothing left to do but wrap up presents and start to indulge in the festivities. Unless of course you are a committed crafter, in which case you’re probably still wondering if you have enough time to make a hugely complicated king size quilt before Christmas Eve as well as knock up new pyjamas for all your children and your other half, plus knit each of your friends a hat. Well whether you fall into the first camp or the second, or indeed the third camp that is indulging in some purely recreational craft as part of the Christmas downtime, just in case you still need a last minute gift or a browse of the fabrics, here are our opening hours over the holiday period.
Thursday 22nd December 10am – 7pm
Today we are staying open for the last late night Christmas shopping evening as the town gets truly festive with a evening Christmas market. Lots of the usual suspects from the Ashford Farmer’s Market will be in residence, plus Father Christmas will be welcoming kids into his chalet for a present and a photo opportunity. The town will be in full festive mode and no doubt there will be some mulled wine and mince pies to indulge in.
