Julie Bishop

Julie Bishop looks forward  to spending  more time indulging her passion for art and craft – especially knitting and crochet – as she prepares to retire from her long and successful career in dentistry.

Her interests are wide ranging – recent projects have included the increasingly popular weekly knit and natter sessions at Amina’s cafe in Dover, which has evolved into Dover Community Craft Group. She also co-ordinates various craft-based charitable fund raising ventures for Pilgrim’s Hospice, Macmillan, Age Concern and homeless people in the Dover area. When time permits she enjoys designing and producing many and varied hand-crafted items – recent commissions have included hand-knitted replicas of a friend’s cat, and another friend’s jeep!
