A new arts and craft supplies business has opened in the historic city centre of Dunfermline. It’s the first dedicated, independent arts and crafts supplies shop to be in the city centre for a number of years. Owner, Tamara Currie, runs a range of craft workshops – some of which she delivers and others she brings in specific crafters. She also runs regular evening sessions where local crafters can meet, network and work on their specific craft projects over a coffee.
As a client of Business Gateway Fife, Karen Cassells, business adviser, gave the business general start up advice and information on sourcing business premises and funding and Tamara also attended several BG webinars and was referred to Health & Safety expert, Alan Gow for the premises. Karen said: “Although still in its infancy, the business is developing its marketing plans and Tamara is currently working on launching the website with Digital Boost support.”
Tamara commented: “I was lucky to secure premises in Bridge Street and only opened around the middle of April of this year, after making some minor property improvements internally. The feedback from local artists and the wider craft community has been extremely positive. I am also grateful to Karen of Business Gateway Fife for all her support and advice.”
