Colorcraft started life in 1969 by Joan Sanderson with the aim of helping people to create their own arts & crafts and learn new skills, that is still our aim today. New owner Heather Rogers, is continuing the theme and we are bursting at the seams with interesting and useful products. We don't just sell, we like to help and advise where we can. It's lovely to meet new people and chat to those who come back to the shop as adults after remembering how much fun they had coming in as children.
