The Craft Cabin
Nina is one of the longest serving artisans at Arreton Barns and she produces all her products by hand. Choose from greeting cards, which can be personalised with names and ages, special wedding cards with names and dates on, even gift tags can be coordinated to the colour theme of a wedding. Also available are little button dolls, flower pot dolls and even a decorative miniature garden fence.
New to her collection is sterling silver jewellery which is made from the finest quality findings and glass beads. You can also pick up earrings and necklaces to add to your collection.
Nina’s mum, Jean, makes the soft toys, using materials of the best quality. The fur and fabric all conform to the CE safety standards so are suitable for all ages young and old.
Also on sale are Nina’s auntie’s corn dollies. Pat has been making these traditional dolls for over 40 years and is completely self taught. The rye and straw she uses is grown here on the Island as are the dried flowers. The designs range from crosses, horseshoes, lanterns and a traditional fertility doll. Alongside these are decorated wall plaques with poppies and sunflowers as well as decorated real horseshoes.
