Learn a new craft at home!

Crafting is a brilliant thing: it improves mental wellbeing, creates a community, allows us to make things exactly how we like them- and it's fun!

Social media is a great place to research and learn new craft skills, and here at HappyFabric, we're helping you to do just that! In this blog, we'll share with you some great places you can find online tutorials.


We've teamed up with some of our favourite crafters to introduce our 'SkillSwap' series on YouTube. So far, we have discovered how to crochet and how to sign basic words and phrases in British Sign Language! In return, we have taught how to use HTV at home and How to choose/ use a Heat Press. These tutorials can be seen below (more links to tutorials at the very end of this blog post):
