Our story

Crafter’s Companion started life as a big dream in Sara Davies’ university bedroom. It was here that she had a light bulb moment, about a ground-breaking product which could create envelopes for handmade cards, and The Enveloper was born!

Sixteen years (and lots of hard work) later, we’ve grown our product range from one exciting papercraft tool to thousands of crafting must-haves including stamps, dies and die-cutting machines, embossing folders, card and more to enhance your creative journey and bolster stashes across the world!

Our CTV Studio

Since 2012, we’ve ventured into art materials, with our brilliant Spectrum Noir colouring and drawing supplies, as well as the sewing market with beautiful fabrics and sewing tools from our Threaders range.

In 2020, the hugely popular organisational solution company, Totally Tiffany, joined our family of brands and, in 2021, we launched the chic, fashion-forward craft and stationery brand, Violet Studio.

We have head offices and warehouses in the North East of England and Corona, California, and opened our first bricks-and-mortar stores in Chesterfield and Evesham, as well as a concession in Colne, where we meet hundreds of our loyal customers every year.
