Craft Kits for Beginners and Beyond

At Hawthorn Handmade we want you to enjoy getting creative as much as we do, and make it easy for you to create beautiful things.

Whether you’re a beginner or beyond, our craft kits contain the materials and instructions you need to make your own creative project. Whether it’s a needle felting kit you’re after, or hand embroidery or weaving supplies, we’ve put together materials, designs and patterns for you to make all kinds of gorgeousness at your very own pace.

With super-clear instructions to guide you step by step through every project, it doesn’t matter if you’re just getting started or have a little more experience. We’re pretty confident you’ll learn a new stitch or technique with every kit you try - and find great satisfaction doing it.

Our designs are contemporary, fresh and fuelled by a curiosity with the nature that’s on our doorstep here in the heart of Dorset. Animals and flowers that fascinate us every day creep into our craft kits, mixing old skills with modern design.

Although we started the business from the back room of an old craft gallery, these days we ship hand embroidery kits and craft kits to customers all over the world. The kind things they say and the brilliant things they make constantly inspire us.

We can’t wait for you to get started on your own crafty adventure!

    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 our weaving loom and kits. Mary has always been a talented crafter and can turn her hand to numerous textile crafts.
