First Textures Store
Aug. 15, 1983
Textures Crafts, on Hess St. at George St. beside the Gown and Gavel Tavern, later expanded and moved across the street closer to Main beside the tiny parking lot on the corner.
In 1982, 5 area craftsmen set out to establish a craft shop in Hamilton. Textures was group oriented and self-supporting. Local artisans were asked to join the collective and Textures became a Hamilton destination for the community and visitors, opening it's door in 1983.
Textures Crafts Moved
A few years after opening the first store on Hess Street, Textures Crafts store needed more room and moved across the street.
