Welcome to Cross Country Crafts! A country cottage shop, based in Wales, UK, offering lovingly crafted homespun yarn, handmade jewellery, craft supplies, and gifts for ages nine to ninety-nine!
About Me I'm a Welsh girl, living amongst green fields and woodlands, with my husband, cats, chickens, and guinea pigs. I make all sorts of different things, but my passion is with yarn - crochet and spinning yarn. I was taught to crochet at a young age, and when I picked my hooks back up a few years ago, I soon made too many scarves for my own wardrobe, too many blankets for my bed, and too many cushions for my sofa. So, I had to start selling. That's how Cross Country Crafts came about! I also needed new and interesting yarns, so I dug out my 25 year old spinning wheel, made a few repairs, and fell in love with that again! During crochet and spinning down times, I like to keep some kind of project on the go, so I make other items from my ever-growing stash of beads, buttons and fabrics.
About Mr Cross A software engineer by trade, Mr C loves nothing more than coding machines to do what he wants them to do. He also enjoys working with wood, so built himself a computer controlled router. The wooden signs available in the shop are Mr C's creations. His affinity with wood was most likely passed down from his father, who hand makes beautiful bespoke guitars and ukuleles in his spare time.
