Crafting is so much more than making. It's the connection between like-minded souls, it’s learning new skills and sharing your passion. It's that fuzzy feeling from making something with your own hands. It’s pure joy. And it’s the reason LoveCrafts exists.

The making of LoveCrafts

Back in 2012 three big dreamers, Edward, Cherry and Nigel, had an idea. After seeing the makers in their lives struggle to find all their craft inspiration and materials in one place, they decided to change this. They set out to build a shiny new online home for makers - a place for crafters to feel inspired, connected, and find every little thing they need. LoveCrafts was born.

First came LoveKnitting. It was our first, by no means only, love. The following year, we had a UK warehouse, some brave suppliers and a few more dreamers. By 2014, we had a US warehouse, customers in 97 countries, a designer patterns marketplace with 33k patterns, a new London office, and 50 people. Fast forward to 2015 LoveCrafts had launched in Germany and ventured into new craft territory with LoveCrochet, and after that, we opened a 50 person office in Ukraine, and a satellite office in New York.

Today, we have a global community of happy crafters all over the world, and we’re proud to be the number one destination for knitting and crochet supplies. Yippee! We’re growing like super chunky yarn on giant knitting needles, and we’re not slowing down.
