Dolly has always been a keen crafter but after being widowed she helped set up Three Mills Crafts over twenty years ago realising the value of support, social and emotional benefits of bringing people together to share skills and learn new skills.
Knitting has always been Dolly’s passion having brought up a large family she has knitted for three generations, children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren she now teaches knitting in formal workshops and at festivals. Dolly specialises in knitted toys and children’s clothes, combining traditional and contemporary designs.
Dolly has developed her skills in card making, macramé, braiding and jewellery making through skills sharing. As a keen recycler she almost anything that comes to hand to create new items for gifts and markets.
