Welcome to Been Busy

You may be aware or become aware of changes taking place regarding Been Busy. There was been a change of management at our last premises and Been Busy no longer has any association with those that remain. We very much want to ensure our whole ethos from day one of our venture is maintained and recognised going forward. Our primary aim has always been to give something back to the local community and we know from our many followers and supporters that we have achieved this.

Neil and Angela would like to thank everyone who has supported us with the venture to date. We sold around £15k of unique hand crafted products for crafters and ran lots of workshops- we are a great team and were supported by some very talented people.
Our kettle is on if you are passing.

Products on the High Street

As many of you know we do not like to stand still are excited at the prospect of having products available again on the high street.

We are very pleased to be associated with Out of the ORDinary which is located in Craven Court in Skipton and it looks fabulous. Been Busy products are now available to buy at this outlet so we do hope you will continue to support us and the other crafters who have items in the shop. which We have the quality and unique hand crafted feel everyone has to come to expect.

Do pop into Skipton when you get chance. You can also see how the shop develops by clicking here.

So What Is Been Busy?

Been Busy was a concept created by Angela and supported by her husband Neil. The aim was to provide a great place to find unique handmade crafts and  a venue to pop in for a chat and to learn new crafting skills.

We started our adventure at a lovely little shop on Kirkgate in Silsden in November 2014 and remained there until December 2016 when the premises was sold by the owners. We then moved on to a larger building across the road which gave us more possibilities, but proved to lack the same feel and quirkiness of our original shop.

We have now left those premises and continue to look at new avenues to explore.

All the latest news will be posted here.

Get Busy

Get Busy was born out of Been Busy and reflected the workshop side of the venture. It allowed anyone, no matter what skill level or how they fit into society, to spend time in a safe, friendly environment. It provided the chance to learn or develop crafting skills and also the opportunity to meet new friends.. 

Going forward we will continue to fully support this ethos and give something back to the local community.
