FOR seven years the Community Craft Shop in Ardrossan’s Glasgow Street has been offering people the chance to pop in for a brew and a blether and see some crafters at work.

For £3 you can tuck into homebaking from the café at Saltcoats Station as well as enjoy some company from the volunteers who spend their time creating art and knitting.

The main focus was to give people in the area somewhere to go for some company.

Now, the craft shop has art work for sale, knitted dolls, handbags and beautiful homemade trinkets too.

And there is always a brew on the go Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 3pm.
