Welcome to our first blog post of 2024!

A new year to start a new craft.

Try something alternative this year, something a little quirky and outside of the box. 

Take a look at what we suggest you try in 2024 - try out these smaller craft sets so wet your pallet and see if it is your new thing!


Macrame is a form of knot crafting using rope. 

One of the benefits of macrame is that you do not really need any tools, only materials, which can be as little as some rope!

You an make plant hangers, ornaments, ket chains, dream catchers, wall hangings, jewellery, bookmarks and so much more. 

Get started by trying out one of these macrame craft kits below.
