Our story

Crafter’s Companion started life as a big dream in my little university bedroom. This is where I had my light bulb moment, and the Enveloper was born!

Now after all these years (and lots of hard graft) later, my husband, Simon, and I have grown our product range to include not just crafting tools but stamps, dies, colouring mediums and a whole host of items to enhance your crafting journey and bolster your stash!

our first store

Since 2015 we’ve also ventured into the sewing market with a selection of fabrics and sewing tools, and that also happens to be the year we realised another dream and opened our first bricks-and-mortor store next door to our shiny new headquarters in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.

While we might now have expanded into the USA with our California office. I’m a Coundon girl born and bred and proud that Crafter’s Companion is based in the North East of England.

“now totalling 190 staff...”

Now totalling 190 staff around the UK and overseas, we’re a friendly lot who like to put the customer at the heart of everything we do – so, we look forward to speaking to you soon!
