09 Mar 2018


  • Guaranteed craftisfaction with Aldi’s premium Hobby and Craft range
  • Available online to pre-order from Sunday 1st April and in stores from Thursday 5th April
 
From five different types of knitting yarn to all the haberdashery essentials, hobby enthusiasts can find everything they need for design inspiration with Aldi’s new Hobby and Craft range. Prices start at just 79p, with the full range available to pre-order online from Sunday 1st April and to buy in stores from Thursday 5th April. Shoppers must be quick though because as with all Specialbuys – once they’re gone, they’re gone!
 

This Sewing Machine (£69.99) is a perfect investment for both beginner seamstresses and expert tailors. This easy-to-use machine includes all the traditional functions but is also fully equipped with over twenty innovative styles of stitch, including zigzag, overedge and blind stitch. Repair a trouser hole, create new house furnishings or design a new fashion range – the opportunities are limitless. 

Keep all the essentials safe and secure in this adorable Sewing Box (£6.99). Available in a range of beautiful designs, with a handy pin cushion and plastic tray, it’s just the thing for storing necessities whilst adding a touch of charm to any room. If shoppers are looking for something pocket sized to use on-the-go, Aldi’s Sewing Set (£3.99) provides a handy solution. Choose from either a case of 24 colourful thread spools or a compact set of sewing basics, including scissors, a tape measure, needles and much more. 

Take on a new project this spring and create something amazing with Aldi’s Fabric Fat Quarters (£3.99). With a range of charming patterns, these assorted fabrics look great alone or stiched together. Each pack contains six fabric pieces and will spark imagination to create pillow cases, bunting, shopping bags and much more. Or why not try Aldi’s Knitting/Crochet Kits (£3.99), complete with instructions to make a crochet pug, fox, unicorn, dragon, lion or giraffe. 

Shoppers can create a knit as unique as they are with Aldi’s five variants of premium selection of yarn. For those looking for a popular knit, the Aran Yarn (£3.99) is ideal. Made from a mix of 80% acrylic and 20% wool, this machine washable, easy care yarn is the go-to when knitting a range of items. The Chunky Yarn (£3.69) is sure to spice it up, available in a range of bold colours including blue storm, platinum, raspberry, midnight and moss. The Double Knitting Yarn (£3.69) is perfect when knitting hats and scarves to keep the cold at bay, with a thicker fibre used, while the Baby Yarn (£3.49) offers a beautifully soft touch knit. The Fancy Yarn (£2.99) is for the more ‘out-there’ crafters, with fun and glamourous colours and designs, such as this ‘ocean pom-pom’ yarn.

Shoppers can get crafty and make their own bath bombs, soaps and luxurious cocoa butter with Aldi’s Premium Crafting Kits for just £4.99.

Take on craft projects with the help of Aldi’s Craft Tools, a range of cutters, knives and scissors costing just £2.99 each, which adds a personal touch to any creation. The range also includes a Paper Trimmer/Cutter (£7.99) for larger projects. Safety is key whilst crafting so it’s worth investing in Aldi’s Cutting Mats (£2.99), self-healing, double sided, 3mm thick mat, to prevent slippages.

Aldi’s Hobby and Craft range is available to pre-order online at https://www.aldi.co.uk/c/specialbuys/specialbuyscategories from Sunday 1st April and in stores from Thursday 5th April, while stocks last. The full range can be found below:
