Who we are... [click on to follow our snail trail]
Community Crafts is, and always has been, in Carmarthen. It started in 1978 in tiny premises in Jackson's Lane and in 1990 moved to larger premises in Queen Street.
Since 2001 we have been at our present address at 30 King Street. Now our shop is large enough to allow customers to browse our vast range of craft and hobby materials and equipment but still small enough to ensure that everyone can get personal attention. One of us - the partners, Ann and Carol - is always available. With, between us, nearly half a century of experience of materials and techniques used in craft work (whether for pleasure or profit) we are happy to help personal shoppers with suggestions and advice whenever we can.
Our individual customers - some of whom have been with us since we started - range from upholsterers to jewellers, from model makers to embroiderers, from spinners and weavers to potters. We serve, with the same care, both the school children tackling their first craft and technology project and the established professionals who make their livings from their crafts. We also supply organisations like schools, colleges, youth groups, hospitals, craft guilds, etc.
Although geared up to serve personal shoppers, we will also post things.
