Staff and friends of Sew Arty helped mark the forthcoming Aviva Women’s Tour by ‘yarn bombing’ a bike and putting up tour-themed bunting outside their new store.

The arts and crafts supply store moved from 5 Station Road to 67 Station Road over the May bank holiday.

Many people contributed patches of wool to completely cover the bike and other items, and others helped put up the bunting which features the famous yellow jersey as worn by the race leader.

Leanne Hickman of Sew Arty said: “We just wanted to let people know we’ve moved and get the community involved by doing something fun.”

Paul Garrison, Business Support and Events Officer with Warwick District Council said; “Thank you to everyone at Sew Arty for helping out with our Women’s Tour decorations and celebrations. We wish them every success in their new shop.”
