Now located on the outskirts of York.  Plenty of FREE onsite parking available.

Having been in the crafting business for 3 decades, we pride ourselves in being a family run business that cares about its customers.  We have a room for quilting , one for needlework and one for beads  

 .  We want you to find a place for handicrafts in your lives and hope to inspire you be it online or in the shop.

We source first quality beads from Europe and create our own range of exclusive signature mixes which work really well in jewellery and are great for embellishment.  Our complimenting range of smaller beads and crystals are the perfect way to add sparkle to your knitting and sewing projects.  Our beads are supported by a fantastic range of well tried and tested clasps, wires, threads and tools.  

We offer a massive range of cotton fabrics for quiltinga few of which are available to buy online but we do recommend that you make us a destination and give yourself plenty of time to browse .we love moda, benertex, painters palette ,tilda ...to name but a few of the ranges we choose from .


We stock linen, aida and canvas for embroidery, cross stitch and tapestry in as many colours as we can find.  Our range of stranded DMC  threads are supported by cotton perle, variegated threads, madeira silks and dmcsatin s.  We sell beginner kits in all sort of style to encourage a new generation of stitchers plus silk gauze, linen twill and wool flannel for the more adventurous stitcher.  We have an everchanging stock of needlework kit and threads.


We offer a 'sourcing' service as we know that certain things can be tricky to track down if you don't know where to look.  If you are searching for something elusive, get in touch because we can probably help.  You never know until you ask and we love a challenge.  We offer a worldwide postal service and so don't be put off by your location in relation to us here in York.
