Helston fabric store's move is all sewn up

First published in News

Heathercraft's owner Avril Plunkett is always good for a yarn - and now she will be able to offer even more.

Her haberdashery business has been based in the same shop at the top of Coinagehall Street for the last 18 years, but it is now on the move.

Fabric fans need not be alarmed however - she is only moving across the road, to the former New Look store.

While the big move itself will take place on the bank holiday weekend at the end of this month, the new shop's signage - paid for with the help of a grant from the Helston Business Improvement Partnership - is already in place, in time for Flora Day. Appropriately, it is in the colour of the symbol for the day (and arguably the town), the green and white of lily of the valley.

Avril has cottoned on to the fact that a move will allow her to expand her business, not least the aforementioned yarn range by bringing in Paton and Sirdar brands.

Other new additions include an increased number of craft kits and two rails of curtain fabric, one set of which can be ordered as made to measure curtains.

Avril is also hoping for an added benefit - in that there is a distinct possibility the move could uncover various lost stock from more than two decades.

She told PPV: “It's looking good. I've had a lot of positive reaction and the staff just can't wait. We're looking forward to it.”
