If you thought that creative skills such as knitting had been consigned to the dustbin of history, then step inside Sharon Parkinson’s thriving little wool shop, the aptly named Stitches, in Garstang’s Market Place … and think again! For inside is a knitting, sewing, and crafting paradise. The shelves are full of wools, fabrics, yarns, beads, haberdashery, tapestry and cross stitch kits – plus gifts … and business is brisk. Sharon, who has always been creative and fond of knitting, took over the shop just over a year ago. She had been deputy practice manager at a Preston GP’s surgery, but wanted a change, and when she noticed on-line the Garstang shop was on the market, she took the plunge. “It was heaven sent,” she says, “and on the main street as well.” She’s never looked back. She stocks a huge range of wools and is pleased to observe that it’s not just older people who knit now. “The craft is coming back,” she says. “And with some new wools you can knit items such as scarves in a couple of evenings.” Sharon offers a skilled personal service too – if people need advice, she is only too pleased to offer it. She says she inherited her creative skills from her dad. But her ability isn’t confined to crafts … she’s a talented musician as well, playing violin and guitar.
