About Us

Crafts by Design is a family owned and run business. Alison looks after the crafty side, whilst Emma is our resident artist. We are retailers of cross stitch, tapestry, knitting, crochet, haberdashery, patchwork and quilting, lace making, jewellery making, modelling and art and papercraft materials - and so much more! We also take commissions for custom projects such as portraits, tattoo design, small art pieces, and custom cross stitch and tapestry kits and complete cross stitch and tapestry pictures.

Come and talk to us about your project - if we don't have the materials you want, we can source them within a week and often within a couple of days.
