Downland Crafts is a registered craft business based in Killeshandra, Co. Cavan, Ireland and we specialise in card making materials, jewellery making materials, Pixelhobby and other creative craft products. We are focused on providing high quality products and service for all our customers.
We have a wide variety of products and brands to choose from including our own range of clear photopolymer stamps, beads, jewellery findings, craft embellishments, peel offs, Pixelhobby kits and accessories to name a few. Our business is based on the belief that our customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. We are committed to meeting those needs and as a result a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
We also host regular month end sales in our customer group over on Facebook #DownlandCrafters from January to November.
As crafters ourselves we also make handmade greeting cards, wedding stationery and jewellery and sell those on our sister site www.downland-crafts.com
A LITTLE BIT OF OUR HISTORY
We started our journey in the craft industry in 2004 as a hobby making handmade greeting cards, like many crafters that hobby quickly became an obsession.
Soon there was lots of interest in the cards we were making at first by family and friends, closely followed by craft fair organisers, members of the public and small independant shops. In 2009 we began making jewellery pieces to add to our range.
We found there was a need for affordable paper crafting and jewellery making supplies in Ireland as crafters were often having to pay large shipping costs to buy from overseas so, after lots of feedback by our growing list of customers and crafty friends, we took the decision to register a business called Downland Crafts on the 15th July 2010. Our range has been steadily growing ever since and we always welcome suggestions for items you would like us to stock.
In 2012 we added event organising to our portfolio and we now host 3 craft and gift fairs per year in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan, Summer, Autumn and Christmas. We also have a month end sale in our Facebook customer group on the last Thursday, Friday and Saturday of each month. Check out our events section for more details.
Our first love is stamping and we were delighted to launch our own range of clear photopolymer stamps in 2015. All the stamps we produce have a full ‘Angel Policy‘ so you can use them for your own projects and sell what you make with our blessing. In 2018 for our 8th birthday we created an design team and we regularly share samples on our social media accounts showing you their fabulous makes. The elves have also shared tutorials on our blog and you tube channel. In 2021 we are extending the team to include regular bloggers showing you how to create gorgeous cards and intend to have regular videos too. In you’re interested in joining the team check out our design team call page.
In February 2018 we also became the first official stockist of Pixelhobby UK products in Ireland.
We also run a number of craft related groups on Facebook as well as a Twitter craft business networking session with Tanith Handicrafts (our Elfie’s business).
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the craft industry, so take a look around our shop and give us a try.
