A Crafty Shop for Supplies & Locally Made Goods

Hands On Crafts is your source for craft supplies and quality, hand-crafted goods — such as knitwear, jewelry, woodenware, and quilts — from over 60 local artisans in Yarmouth & Acadian Shores.

Hands On Crafts is run as a co-operative by a group of Yarmouth craftspeople. The store started in 1998 and has evolved from a small shop carrying only finished products to a shop that has knitting, beading, and soap-making supplies as well. All of their finished products are locally made.
