The Crafty Rock was formed in 2017 as a partnership between two ardent Co. Louth crafters, Rita Alves and Brenda Leary. Both had their own craft businesses coming into the partnership, Rita's business, Craft Okapi, supplies craft materials and Brenda, under the name, Scrumbly Creations, produces crocheted bags and other items. Both Rita and Brenda had been working the Craft market circuit when, after a chance remark, they decided to form their own Craft Shop. Following the securing of a small store on the sea front in Blackrock, Co. Louth , their dream, The Crafty Rock, was realised.
