A page deidcated to fellow crafts and trade people working on the inland waterways.
While we are out travelling on "Emma Maye" we have started to come across many other people that produce things that we feel you may be interested in.
A lot of these people tend to only produce small quantites and are quite happy for intrested people to get in touch with them but don't feel the need to have lot's of publicity.
So what we have decided to do is to maintain a "contacts" book and just list the products on here that we have come across and if you are interested if you get in touch with us we'll be happy to pass on details.
Up to now we have found.....
