About

Craft Kits for Beginners and Beyond

In 2010, I opened a little contemporary craft gallery called Hawthorn in a small town in Dorset selling work by the best British designer makers. On the quiet days I started to teach myself how to needle felt. This quickly grew into selling small animals, teaching, and eventually I put together a starter kit and sold it in the shop. This sparked an idea and a few months later I launched the first Hawthorn Handmade kits; just 6 designs and some bundles of wool. I closed the gallery in 2014 and moved HH into a large unit on a local farm where we design, make and sell our kits across the world.

We source our British wool from around the UK and endeavour to use the highest quality contents possible. The loose felting wool is all ethically sourced and the yarn in our crochet kits is spun in a traditional mill in Scotland. Our thread is from the world renowned DMC. All of our kits come packaged in beautiful printed boxes making them the ideal gift for a crafty friend or family member (or yourself, of course). We're also very proud of our comprehensive instructions that feature step by step colour photos or illustrations, size or stitch guides and more to help you along the way.

We hope you enjoy creating your kit as much as we have enjoyed bringing them to you. Let the crafting begin!

    I enjoy crafts of all kinds and a lot of my time is spent doing something crafty; but when I’m not stabbing wool or playing with clay I enjoy karate and getting out and about in the beautiful local countryside which heavily inspires the kits.

    Mary is Stephanie’s Mum. She started helping out at shows and has since become an integral part of the team, designing the new crochet kits with Stephanie. Mary has always been a talented craftsperson and can turn her hand to numerous textile crafts.
