About the littlecraftybugs company

Who we are

Crafty Capers Ltd (the parent of ‘the littlecraftybugs company’) started life in the early 2000’s as a small family business running craft based kids parties and holiday clubs for local school children. It was an idea born from the lack of such activities available for our own children at the time. As interest in our unique craft ideas grew, our first website was ‘born’ in 2004 and after much deliberation the website was named ‘littlecraftybugs’, latterly becoming ‘the littlecraftybugs company’. Several website upgrades and warehouse moves later, the business has expanded to become the popular craft site you are browsing today.

Nearly 25 years on from when we first 'opened our doors' as littlecraftybugs, the business is still family run and led by the same people that opened that first glue stick all those years ago! We take great pride in the hard working and dedicated team we have here at the littlecraftybugs company, based in beautiful Poole in Dorset. We are committed to finding unique and creative products to inspire the crafting community of all ages and abilities, whilst providing excellent customer service and delivery standards.

This website "the littlecraftybugs company" offers an extensive range of craft supplies for both adults and kids. We pride ourselves on supplying the crafting necessities and sourcing funky and alternative craft items that you won't find elsewhere. Rather than following trends we aim to inspire you to start your own!

Many of our products are made exclusively for us and many others we import as the sole distributor in the UK.
