About Hobbycraft

We’re Passionate about Craft

We believe that nothing is as unique, personal or well-received as something that’s been lovingly handmade. That’s why, from our web team to our amazing store colleagues and Customer Services to our CEO, we share a love for craft that thrills and inspires us every day.
