You may have heard that Sandra and Mike Egan sold Arty Crafty to ME. They are a very hard act to follow as Arty Crafty has the distinct reputation for fantastic customer service, loyal customers, being in the community, superb window display and this is something I as the new owner will build upon.

Elisabeth, Kristin and Lara are still here.

I am Colleen Higham and have been so excited with this new venture. It is intended to continue with current successful format with the introduction of a few new ideas. With the theme of promoting crafts, crafting and crafters, I hope that a bright future can be assured for everyone and events and workshops that will continue to attract many customers and friends old and new for a long time to come.

I shall be extending the range of workshops and courses. My aim is to create opportunities for people to regain the love and skills of various arts and crafts. The courses will be informal and designed to be fun and sociable, giving the confidence and inspiration to take on a range of independent projects.

We are always looking for new ideas so get in touch and I’ll see what we can do!

Arty Crafty is For Sale

ARTY CRAFTY IS FOR SALE – Retirement beckons & the one thing that will make it very difficult to bear is if I have to close Arty Crafty to do so. We are searching for someone who would like to take on this unique little gem of an establishment & keep it going for the people of Godalming & further afield.

 The friendships I have made & the satisfaction & joy I have felt from owning Arty Crafty will stay with me for the rest of my life & I count myself extremely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be able to go on this journey for the last 8 years.

 If you know of anyone who may be interested in taking up this wonderful challenge then please ask them to get in touch with me. If it at first appears daunting, as it was to me when I  took over, I totally understand & will happily be at the end of the phone to offer help & advice if needed.

 Please spread the word far & wide so that we can keep Arty Crafty alive for more years to come.

Contact Sandra on for more information
