About Us

Crafty Frog is a true One-stop Needlework Shop.  We stock a huge range of Embroidery, Cross Stitch, Knitting, Crochet, Tapestry and Beading supplies from the bare essentials through to wonderful specialty threads and yarns in our 'bricks and mortar' store and now in our online shop.  Combine that with staff who know their crafts and are willing to share and teach and you have some idea of the shopping experience awaiting you. 

Crafty Frog hopped into the Retail World on Tuesday 05 October 1999.  People ask why “Crafty Frog”?  I was looking for a name that enabled me to expand into whatever area I chose, whilst having a business name that couldn’t be forgotten and so I chose to name it after my two loves – after my family and friends of course – craft and frogs.  I didn’t want a boring name as craft is not and should not be boring or a chore and you have to agree it is not an easily forgotten name. 

 Those who have been to the shop will by now have seen my beautiful red-eyed green tree frog, sitting on his lily pad complete with needle in mouth! We have an ever expanding range of frog mementos and beautiful hand crafted items for those who appreciate good quality hand made gifts, but do not have the time to make them.
