Sew a little smile....

Manchester Craft and Design Centre is in the heart of the quirky & creative Northern Quarter

The 18 craft studios are housed in the old Victorian fish & poultry market

Linzi Ramsden creates ceramic wall art - I'd love one of these beautiful pieces;
clay decorated with embroidery and fabric and then stained with coloured oxides

Delightful pieces by Jennifer Collier - creating works from paper

"I am Kathryn Edwards" designs illustrated canvases with small printed textiles. I already have her umbrella canvas but would love a lampshade too!

Paper bags made by Manchester fitters out of old sewing patterns, Tea cosies knitted following a 1960's pattern, origami newspaper flowers and Rose necklace

Shop names spelt out using fabric letters
