About Us

Craftasmic owners Julie and James opened their first retail store in their home town of Taunton, Somerset in June 2009 and progressed to become one of the major UK online independent specialist craft retailers.

Julie has enjoyed paper crafting for a long time and James has spent many years in the design industry. Bringing these backgrounds together formed what has now become an established independent family run business, across two generations of the family.  Our strength is our tight knit family bond, and we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best possible service - we hope that we make your online shopping experience an enjoyable one.

The name Craftasmic came from the three words ‘craft’, ‘fantastic’ and ‘magic’ and our strap line of ‘dream it, make it’ depicts how we hope to inspire our customers. We have visited local craft groups and also welcomed TV celebrity crafters for amazing weekend events; these have included Sue Wilson, Julia Watts, John Lockwood, Phill Martin and Hels Sheridan!!

It’s important to us that the products we stock are of a good quality at equally good prices, sourced from well known, major trusted brands. From the start, we have built our reputation by trying and testing out as many of the products as possible that we sell in order to give our customers peace of mind. We look to be honest with our customers about the products we sell and the service we provide and share as much information about this as we can within our help guide. There are no hidden costs or extras, we offer free p&p on orders over £20.00 and our postage costs start from as little as £2.95.

Craftasmic is a member of the Association For Creative Industries (AFCI) who's main focus is to help and support craft retailers and suppliers to build on this evergrowing industry.  This in turn allows us to help our customers discover all that is great about the world of crafting!

The Craftasmic team invites you to 'dream it ............ make it’ with them on your next creative project!
