About Us

At LoveCrafts we’re building online communities for crafters: homes for makers where they can find inspiration for their latest projects, learn new techniques, easily buy all of their supplies and share their creations with like-minded makers around the world.

Since launching in 2012, the Financial Times has recognized LoveCrafts as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, and we’ve raised $55 million from three of Europe’s leading venture capital firms (Balderton Capital, Highland Europe and Scottish Equity Partners).

Post-Series C, we’ve opened our first US office in New York City, and we’re planning to hire a team of inquisitive, creative minds to match the ambitious makers in our London and Kiev offices.
