Get hooked on hobbying with Aldi’s new hobby & craft range

With the likes of David Beckham, Cara Delavigne and Taylor Swift all self-confessed craft lovers and studies indicating the mental health benefits of hobby craft, Aldi is on hand with its new Hobby and Craft range, available to pre-order online now and in-stores from 16th April.

Crafting is a great indoor activity which can keep the whole household entertained, so get creative and try something new.

Perfect for beginner crafters or the seasoned pros (an estimated 73% of 16 – 34 year olds already participate in some kind of craft activity each year), there’s everything they need to knit, crochet or paper craft to their hearts content.

Complete with step-by-step guides and all the essential tools and equipment required, Aldi’s Adult Soft Craft Kits (£5.99) are available in five variations; crochet, knitting, macramé, punch needle and weaving; ideal for fledgling crafters honing their hobby know-how.

Aldi’s Knitting/Crochet Kit’s (£3.99) are available in a choice of designs including cactus, crab, donkey, kangaroo and koala. Each kit includes a crochet hook, yarn, darning needle and stuffing, along with full instructions. 

Aldi’s Hobby & Craft range also has scrapbookers covered with the Papercrafts Assortment (£4.99) featuring hardback scrapbooks, trimmers and paper edgers with Scrap Embellishments (£0.99) and XL Permanent Markers (£2.99) also available in the range to add an extra touch of creative flair.

With Fat Quarter designing quickly becoming a viral trend amongst Aldi shoppers, fat quarter fans can now get their hands-on Aldi’s Fabric Fat Quarters Bundle Buy for only £7.98 (available online only). Coming in three patterns, paisley, ikat and English garden, Aldi’s Fat Quarters represent a whopping saving of 66% vs those found at John Lewis.
