So friendly and helpful
I phoned today asking about tin, aluminium metal sheet to emboss and the man on the other end of the phone couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent customer service, can't wait to visit!

I didn't realise this store was there, and someone recommended it to me and I am so glad they did, the staff are so helpful and kind and really go out there way to help their customers. I strongly recommend anyone who needs arts & crafts to go there, I'm sure the staff will make sure they can help you anyway they can. I guarantee I will be going back there whenever I need something art related.

crafty corner
i have been a customer of crafty corner since the previous owners had it, and when irene and dave took over, i have found them to be friendly and helpfull. i am not able to attend craft classes due to my work commitments, but irene is more then happy to give you handy tips and ideas, especially usefull as i have only been a crafter for little over 12 months. irene and dave both will spend time with my husband and i, talking about products, there uses and the pro's and cons.
costing of products are on par with other craft products providers and considerably cheaper on some products.
The shop has been continually improved and changed and the presentation of the shop is amazing and a good use of space, stocking an extensive range of products,
irene and dave also operate a saving club if, where you can save for those nice things and the things we all need as a crafters, and if you require any items then they are more then willing to order anything you need,. great service, wonderfull atmosphere, maybe a side line of cust service course for other craft providers could be an option .
