  • Karelia House Crafting Centre has as much choice, if not more, as top city centre department stores – and is a day out in itself!

If you’re creative, and looking for an Autumn Day Out, or want to start your Christmas shopping for the craft lover in your life, Karelia House in Aberfeldy, is the place to go!

The five star knitting, sewing & crafting destination is a top performing retail outlet for Brother Sewing Machines, and regularly holds tutored crafting courses for small groups.

Come along and get the very best advice on a wide range of crafting products, with top ranges stocked from all over the world, including Rowan, Wool & The Gang, West Yorkshire Spinners, Moda, Lewis & Irene. The experienced staff can help you find exactly what you are looking for, whether for yourself or as a gift. If you are a crafter, they might even persuade you to try your hand at a completely new craft – there is something for every level of ability.

And after the shopping is done you can wash it all down with a delicious cup of freshly brewed coffee and something from the home baking range. Karelia House has its own artisan café, showcasing seasonal produce, so you can have morning coffee, afternoon tea, or lunch, whilst you take in a class, or visit for retail therapy. 

“We’re well placed for visitors from the major cities of Edinburgh, Aberdeen, and Glasgow,” said Proprietor, Shirley Shearer. “We have as much choice here as the big city Department stores, perhaps even more so, and it’s a very personal, relaxed service we offer. People come here for a day out.”

“Our training with Brother enables us to showcase their wide range of machines with confidence, so you can have peace of mind we will find the right one for you,” she added.

She finished: “Many of our regular customers over the years have come here to escape their busy lives with a day of “me time” crafting. Never have this been more in vogue.  Nowadays too, we especially love to see the younger generation picking up on crafting because of the enjoyment a mother or grandmother has taken from it.”
