A 'Real' Shop

established 1956

You can have confidence when you make a purchase from Cottontail Crafts that you are buying from a long-established 'real' shop in a 'real' town centre, in a 'real' market town. We are definitely not a newcomer operating from an anonymous warehouse on a bleak industrial estate.

Cottontail Crafts is located in Settle, a lovely market town in the glorious Yorkshire Dales where I have lived all my life. The shop has been owned by my family for 60 years. In the early days, my parents sold wallpaper and paint in support of their decorating business. Over the years they diversified into gifts and then into haberdashery & wool. I took over the shop in 1982. The shop was known as 'Settle Sewing Centre' until I changed its name to 'Cottontail Crafts' in 2010.

Over the years, I have continually added new product ranges to reflect the ever-changing trends in crafting. In addition to the range of haberdashery products and knitting wool the shop now sells a wide range of leading brand products for sewing, needle felting, needlecraft, haberdashery and much more – it is truly " a paradise for crafters ".
