This week's brand spotlight is on the wonderful Crafty Kit Company, a UK brand that designs fabulous and fun craft kits that come complete with everything you need – all the essential tools, materials and full colour, step-by-step photographic instructions. The range includes needle felting, sewing, knitting and cross stitch kits and every kit is aimed at beginners and those with a bit of experience. During a difficult year for so many of us, a Crafty Kit Company craft kit is a brilliant way to keep busy and create something beautiful or just to relax and get crafty, with something lovely to show for it at the end.
Their message is simple - "At The Crafty Kit Company, we firmly believe that everyone can be creative. We know that crafting is good for us - it’s a relaxing, sociable hobby that sharpens the mind, increases confidence and promotes a wonderful sense of wellbeing. Remember how great you felt when you finished your last crafty project?"
Founded in 2012 and based in the pretty village of East Linton near Edinburgh, The Crafty Kit Company is a family run small business that takes crafty inspiration from the beautiful countryside surrounding it, designing ranges mainly based on wildlife and other animals.
The company is very focused on giving back, supporting international causes by donating a percentage of the profit of every kit that they sell to people and places that really need it. For example, they are currently helping farmers in Kenya to run their bee-keeping businesses.
Their kits have won numerous awards and remain some of our bestselling craft kits for older kids - they make lovely gifts that nurture and encourage creativity and promote a sense of wellbeing and achievement for kids and adults alike.
