LoveCrafts, a global community for makersPublished on May 21, 2021 4 min read
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
LoveCrafts all began way back in 2012. First came LoveKnitting, and we loved it so much we wanted to create the same wonderful yarny home for our crocheting friends - LoveCrochet was born in 2015. 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 believe the joy of making is for everyone, from every culture and community. We may all be in different places, but as we like to say, together we make."
Take a trip back to 2012, and 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.
In the summer of 2019 we joined our family of crafts, LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet, together under one roof - LoveCrafts. We know so many of you knitters and crocheters love to do more than one craft, so we thought it was about time to combine all our crafting love into one cozy craft room. After lots of careful research, insightful conversations with our customers, and endless cake to fuel the tech wizardry, we've combined all the things you love into one single home for makers - LoveCrafts.com
We’re growing like super chunky yarn on giant knitting needles, and we’re not slowing down.
