The Girl Who Found Her Inspiration

AdvantagesEverything under one roof at reasonable prices.

DisadvantagesMight not be one near you - yet.

"Once upon a time there was a little girl who sat on her Nana’s knee. Her Nana was a clever woman, who could make miracles with her hands; she knitted tiny baby grows for premature children, she cross-stitched birthday cards, and she did Quilling, Rugging, stamping. Her house was full of balls of wool, snippets of cotton and she always had a pair of safety scissors hanging round her neck. This girl grew up to be like her Nana; creative, arty and original, ..."

Everything under one roof - it will draw you in for hours!

AdvantagesSuch a wide variety under one roof

DisadvantagesYou will be gone for hours and probably spend too much money!

"Hobby craft sells everything. Ok, well not everything, but all you will need for your crafting addiction. The first time I came across Hobby Craft was last year when I went in there with a friend who was really into her card making. She showed me all her bits and pieces and what she had made with them and immediately I fell in love – I had to have these too! We went the same day and I ended up spending a fortune. Hobby Crafts are situated mainly ..." Read review

A Treasure Trove Of Crafting Goodies - Hobbycraft

AdvantagesGreat selection, helpful staff, great website

Disadvantageshigher prices, stock availability varies from store to store, specialist items are rare

"...a great range for every hobby imaginable, I have found it does come at a price, for instance as I am an avid painter I go through acrylic paints like nobodys business! In Hobbycraft I can get a 75ml tube of titanium white (my most used colour) for £3, however I have found pretty much the exact same product with the same quality in other smaller art stores for £1. Though I will say that Hobbycraft do offer a great value range in almost every craft ..." Read review

Disadvantagescan be expensive

"...and nothing less of a hobby and craft store, with a wide range of crafting products. My local hobbycraft is situated on a retail park, it’s a very large shop.

You will also find the cashiers on the ground floor situated near the doors, along with sweets and chocolate around the tills, sometimes ..." Read review

Arts and Rubbish

AdvantagesThey have items to suit all ages

DisadvantagesPrices, Quality and just the staff

"...around but you just assume Hobby Craft is going to be the cheapest store around. I appreciated the items they have for all age ranges because it makes the store have appeal and I understand they sell top off the range items but in my view they hardly have any customers, especially in my store. Imagine the scene of walking into a store and sometimes you’re the only one around inside that is not a nice feeling at all. I like many things in the ..." Read review

Everyone should have one - a hobby

Advantagesgo in and come out with a new hobby in mind and thinking I can do that

Disadvantagesyou will want dozens of new hobbys

"...they have pamplets on the hobby telling you what equiptment you require and help and tips on how to do things. With the help of these pamplets I was able to make the candles perfectly. I know its not rocket science to make candles but following the leaflets I achieved it so it proves how well written they are. The shop itself is well set out with a main aisle down the centre with buckets of special offers and sale items. Everything is well set ..." Read review

Crafter's paradise

Advantagesgood variety of products on offer

Disadvantagesthere are none except they should have more products

"I use this store regularly to indulge myself in my arts and crafts pursuits. I would say that its a gem for people who like crafting, and they always have new products available, and a well-rounded varied stock overall. Their book selection should on average be bigger but usually I do find a book I like. Mostly use the store because I am a stitcher and their selection is so varied usually that I have trouble choosing. The selection offers selections ..." Read review
