Our events

At Johnson’s we’re always busy enjoying knitting, crochet and stitching and there’s chatter and laughter as we share what we’re all crafting with our lovely and clever customers.
Just like our theme tune, Mrs Johnson’s Happiness Emporium, we believe in putting in effort into improving our world. We are working with others in Blackpool’s South Shore Waterloo Village to bring a neglected area back to the attracting and thriving shopping hub it once was.
