Announcement    Are you thinking about Christmas? Remember that international orders need to be sent early - especially this year with potential covid delays, postal strikes and the like. I recommend ordering in November to be sure of Christmas orders. For the exact dates see the FAQs at the bottom of the page.

Please note that in general I do not send items with tracking as this costs approximately an extra 6CHF - if you want to have tracking on your order please let me know and I can arrange the payment.

Local orders can be picked up in person in Basel or Aesch, please drop me a note to arrange that and for a code to remove the postage fee from your order.

About TheCraftRoomMakes

On Etsy since 2017

Handcrafted in Basel, Switzerland

The Craft Room is an atelier (workshop) in Basel, Switzerland opened in 2016 by me with the aim of teaching crafts to the English speaking community here.

Here in my Etsy shop you will find hand made products all made by me at the Craft Room or in my home. I love to dye yarn and to knit and crochet with it too. I love the surprise of seeing what a multi-coloured yarn will look like knitted up. I am also a big fan of Fimo and all the patterns you can make with it - I cover crochet hooks as well as pens with my fimo designs.

    Originally from the UK I moved to Switzerland in 1996. A keen knitter and seamstress, I always made things as a hobby, something which I find enormously satisfying. I teach at the Craft Room in Basel where I also make goods for sale.

Frequently asked questions

Pick up items in person at the Craft Room

If you are local to Basel and would like to save on shipping costs by picking up your items at the Craft Room, just send me a message and I can give you the code to remove the shipping cost from your order.

Care instructions

Most of my hand dyed yarn, and knitted items made from hand dyed yarn should be carefully hand washed at no more than 30 degrees C. Sock yarn is usually machine washable to 40 deg C, but please look at the individual listing to be sure. Washing instructions are on the yarn label.

It is possible that some dye may bleed out when items are washed the first time. All my dyed yarns are colourfast and thoroughly rinsed, but dark colours especially may still bleed a little when washed - always wash your items carefully and with like colours.

Why no free shipping?

The simple answer is because shipping is not actually free, the post office charges money for that!

The only way I can offer free shipping to you is to increase the prices of my items across the board.

By having paid shipping I can charge you the actual shipping cost - so if you are close to me you will pay less than if you are far away. Essentially - you pay what it costs and that is that. I personally think this is much fairer.
