Logan Village craft cottage's new home on the green

A RECENT move to Logan Village Green has given a burst of new life to the hardworking team behind Doo-Dropp-Inn community craft cottage.

Secretary Shirley Little told the Times that while the aim of the cottage is mainly to sell handmade crafts, to its members and customers it’s become much more.

“Our craft cottage is  now permanently on the other side of the Village Green, beside the Logan Village Museum in River Street, Logan Village,” she said.

“It is a way of bringing us all together, for fun and friendship, laughter, outings, weekends away, service to the community, and much more. 

“Over the years we have made and donated bibs for the disabled, trauma dolls, dolls for domestic violence, knitted premature baby beanies, and at present we are working with ‘Mission Possible’ making tactile mats, nighties, boxer shorts, and the list goes on.”

According to Shirley, the cottage currently has around 20 members who work two days each per month at the cottage.

“There are some buses that call in and spend their time and money at the cottage, and we certainly appreciate that, however, most of the time we rely on the local people dropping by to purchase original items as gifts, or simply ‘just because they like it’,” she said.

The Doo-Dropp-Inn community craft cottage always welcomes new members. Anyone wanting to join should just pop in or contact Shirley Little on 0412 296 542.
