"...when I first visited the Hobbycraft in Woking. This is a very nice store where you can find loads of treasures to your craft works. The store in Woking is in the Lion Retail Park which accommodates some other DIY, interior design and household appliance stores. There are loads of parking places, I never had difficulty finding parking place there and the parking is free. The Hobbycraft is about in the middle. The store has a ground floor and a first ..."

Time to get on my hobbyhorse

AdvantagesOpening hours, wide variety of crafts, easy to move around shopping

DisadvantagesPricing, lack of choices on items generally only stocking one of each.

"Hobbycraft shops are usually a first point of call for many inexperienced crafters. As the shops are more typical of a department store, and usually located in retail parks or high streets. The stores cover many a different type of hobby, which is good for most people, but at the same time as they dont specialise, they carry very little within each speciality. I first came across hobbycraft about 6 years ago, when I took up papercrafting, not having ..." Read review

An Aladdin's Cave!

Advantagesgreat for all craft supplies

Disadvantagescould be more organised

"...when you first walk into Hobbycraft because it feels like you are entering an Aladdin's Cave - there is just so much stuff to look at that I can easily spend a couple of hours just browsing around all the shelves. There is just about something for everyone covering a whole range of hobbies including model making, cross stitch, knitting, jewellery making and my favourite card making and scrapbooking. There are also many kits and products that are very ..." Read review

GET CRAFTY WITH HOBBYCRAFT

AdvantagesLoads to look at, leaflets to learn from, workshops held, most crafts catered for, children and adults crafts catered for

DisadvantagesYou can spend a long time in the shop perusing as there is so much to see

Could make 'crafts' the new DIY

AdvantagesFull of inspiring ideas, everything for artists and makers of all things, open late

DisadvantagesFinding what you're after can be tricky, lots of tempting things for kids

"...in the ad, that's because Hobbycraft see themselves, I suspect, primarily aimed at women. Step through its automatic doors and you'll see what I mean. On your left there is a shelf of bit and bobs for doing tapestry or needlepoint. Straight in front, a dazzling display of artificial flora and fauna greets you. A big selection here, as I encountered when putting together a nice bunch for Mother's Day. Some of them are pretty realistic looking and ..." Read review
