About Us

A little bit about us

Knitwits & Crafty Stitchers first opened its doors on the outskirts of Galway city in 2013 and has gone from strength to strength over the years. The business was started by Kathryn O’Toole and with the help of her close family the shop has flourished into a true hidden gem for crafters. Kathryn and her team are always more than willing to help you out in store and over the phone.

Knitwits & Crafty Stitchers is now Galway city and connachts largest yarn and fabric supply store. We specialise in all types of yarn from acrylics, wools, cottons to 100% Alpacas and blends. We carry a wide array of brands to suit all budgets and tastes. We also stock a large selection of 100% cotton craft fabrics and dress fabrics. The list of fabrics constantly changes but included in our stock are polycottons, felt, fleece, flannels, poplins, corduroy, lining, denim, jersey, dress net, Boiled wool, chiffon and organza. Our bricks and mortar shop has been described as an Aladdin's cave for crafters. You will find lots of useful tools and gadgets for needle craft projects on our shelves.

The shop opens 6 days a week Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 3pm. We close on all bank holidays for a week every year over Christmas. We also trade on line 24/7 but only ship within Ireland (North and South). We are based on the outskirts of Galway city which is easily accessible by car, bus or on foot – you’ll find a map and directions on the "Find us" page. Due to our location, there is ample parking.

While we make every effort to showcase our range of products online our stock is constantly changing you will always find much more in our Galway based shop. If there is something you’re looking for and can't find it online don’t be afraid to drop us an email or pick up the phone we’ll do our best to get you sorted. We aim to have an extensive selection of yarns, patterns, books, fabrics, cross stitch, tapestry, ribbons, buttons and accessories for all forms of needle craft. We cater for all ages and budgets. Many items can be ordered in specifically to meet a particular customer’s needs.
