The Crafters is a retail co-operative, set up in 1998 in Melrose, in the Scottish Borders.
We are a group of like-minded independent craft workers, who wanted to have a retail space in the high street
that we could run ourselves.
Most of us have workshops tucked away in the country and only meet our customers - and each other
- occasionally at craft fairs and local events. Joining forces has made it possible for us to have a shop to
sell our wares, while at the same time being able to continue to run our workshops. We are now a thriving
concern with fourteen members, supporting each other for our mutual benefit.
The Crafters offers a wide range of gifts for all occasions. From pottery, made to measure
knitwear, turned wood, candles, children’s clothes, jewellery, wedding favours and accessories, silk and velvet
scarves, personalised artwork for kids, bags, hats, to prints and cards, including flower paintings, animal
paintings and landscapes. In addition, we also
have guest exhibitors throughout the year, bringing further variety, while at the same time giving an opportunity
to other local craftspeople.
