At Quillies we stock a wide range of quirky and beautiful crafts from over 60 mainly local makers, including textile crafts, pottery, jewellery, glassware, wood products and gifts to suit every pocket. It’s a real Aladdin’s cave in mid-Wales. We are passionate about using upcycled materials to create something new and unusual.
The name ‘Quillies’ comes from the circles of rolled-up strips of boiled wool that owner Rosemary uses in her own craft of standing wool, a traditional technique of rag rug making that reflects her passion for upcycling. If you look around the shop you might spot new uses for old clothes, cutlery, OS maps, Coke bottles and food packaging. We also have superb glassware which will remind you of your time in mid-Wales, and a great selection of cards and wrapping paper. Kits and tools are available to make your own rag art, crocheted animals or pom-poms and even to clothe naked sheep. Rosemary is always happy to advise and help you with your crafting queries and has been known to raid her own stash of supplies to find just what you need.
