Crafty Stiches wins Northwich ‘Best Dressed Business’ competition


Northwich business Crafty Stitches has been praised by the people of the town, having been named winner of the ‘Best Dressed Business’ competition earlier this month.

The contest was run in conjunction with the town’s entry for the RHS’ North West in Bloom.

It saw a range of Northwich retailers decorating shop fronts, gardens, bars and shopping areas to catch the eye of visitors.

Mother and daughter team Joan and Louise, who run Crafty Stitches, were delighted when the results of the poll were announced.

Commenting on Crafty Stitches’ success, Louise said: “Winning the competition has highlighted what wonderful people we have in the town – from those who voted for us, to those who helped to make our display.

“We have seen such love for our little shop this summer and it’s been fantastic.

“We’d love to thank everyone that has helped to make the display, everyone who voted for us, the BID team for creating such an amazing summer and for all the other shops who took time to take part in the competition.”

Louise also praised the community spirit between different traders in the town and revealed that they all support and praise one another, which helps create a great atmosphere.

Bella Boutique came in second place, while Nigel Bailey Hair followed in third.

Attention now turns to how Crafty Stitches can best put their unique knitted flower arch to use.

“Our flower arch has attracted so much attention this summer, we’ve had lots of people just pop their head in to say how wonderful it is and to take photos,” explained Louise.

“It’s had such an amazing response, that we’ve been overwhelmed with how much it’s brightened up the summer shoppers. It’s even been used at a wedding as a photo booth!”
