Crafty Stitches

Welcome to Crafty Stitches & our online shop

We have sadly reached the time where we have to close our doors for good and we will no longer be trading in the shop from 31st July 2022 at the latest.  The website will be closed with immediate effect and no orders can be made.  All in stock items are now reduced by 40% for all in store purchases.


Why we came to this decision.

Unfortunately for us (and many others), the pandemic has been a huge catalyst in the demise of our business.  Lower trading during the pandemic, coupled with reduced footfall in the town, rise in the cost of living, supplier price increases and a general change in people’s shopping habits, has led to a ‘perfect storm’ of circumstances and one which we can no longer makes our business viable.


We made the heartbreaking decision to close our doors for good and whilst this decision wasn’t taken lightly, it has come as a great relief to us.  We would like to thank you all for your custom for all these years, the years have been amazing, we’ve rode the highs and lows, but made some wonderful and true friends throughout – without you we wouldn’t have such a great time being part of the crafting community.


We now have 40% off all in stock goods in store and we would appreciate all your help to reduce what we have left so that we can close with our heads held high.  You can see our new trading hours below.


We are open Monday to Saturday and our opening times are as follows:

Monday                 9.45am to 4.00pm

Tuesday                 9.45am to 4.00pm

Wednesday           CLOSED

Thursday               9.45am to 4.00pm

Friday                    9.45am to 4.00pm

Saturday                9.00am to 5.00pm


Our knitting club and crochet courses

Our knitting/crochet club will continue to run for the foreseeable, so why not join us the Chicks that Knit Knitting & Crochet Club, at the Memorial Court. We run two weekly sessions for those who can knit/crochet and for anyone wanting to learn to knit:

Tuesday afternoon from 12.30pm – 2.30pm and Tuesday evening from 7.00pm – 9.00pm.


Our popular crochet courses will sadly have to end this year, the courses booked until November will run as normal, but no new courses will be held after November.


Once again, thank you for your love, your support and your custom.  We truly appreciate all of your time with us and we thank Sharon and Tracy for being amazing staff and we wish them good luck in their future.  We will be creating a Crafty Stitches Facebook group for all of you to join us and show us what you are still making, sharing the good times and remembering how awesome it was.


Love to you all from Joan and Louise.
