Welcome to Calico Kate!
Calico Kate is open again
after the Welsh firebreak lockdown!
The entrance is through my Courtyard Garden, and the Exit is through the shop door onto the High Street.
From the High Street, go down the passageway between the Deli Cafe and the Welsh Quilt Centre: just behind the Deli cafe is a small car park, where my slate sign welcomes you to the Courtyard Garden. On the counter just inside the doorway is a small bell for you to let us know you are there!
Due to the layout of the building, a limited number of customers will be admitted at any one time, as with all shops. This may involve queueing, but the Courtyard has seating, and is looking lovely, so relax and enjoy. Bring your umbrella if it rains!
Consideration for others at all times within the shop, so please observe two metre social distancing. Please refrain from touching, as much as you can, I know it is difficult!
I ask all customers to wear a facemask and disposable gloves, which are available at the entrance. We have face masks available to purchase, if you arrive without one.
I have altered the layout to give everyone as much room as possible, but there will be areas where you used to go, that you no longer can.
