Born in July of 2018, our pretty store is the brightest part of a redeveloping shopping center. Our new home is in Gateway Plaza, located between Capital Blvd and Raleigh Blvd, just north of downtown Raleigh, and just south of 440. It's pretty easy to get to from most places, and it has a big ol' parking lot, yay!
Over the next few months the parking lot will be getting a BIG facelift. Don't let that scare you, we are still here and still open. We're also welcoming some new neighbors, from a favorite coffee shop and roastery to a bakery that will make you sing. There will also be a brewery, a bottle shop and a few more fab new neighbors. Watch our store emails for updates on what's happening in our neighborhood.
but wait, what are we?
Craft Habit is a retail and workshop venue that offers unique and high-quality crafting supplies, tools, and hands-on classes to quench the thirst of any craft enthusiast or DIY lover. We are something unique to Raleigh; not a chain craft supply shop but an independent venue for creativity and learning.
Craft Habit is a highly interactive retail space. Customers can register for classes, arrange private crafting events and birthday parties, and use in-store workspace to begin projects with their purchased supplies. In all cases, a crafty staff member or instructor is on-hand to lend expertise.
Our goal is to share our passion and creativity with Raleigh one craft at a time. Along with growing skills in the community, we’ll introduce our fellow craft addicts to materials from independent supply companies, American and local manufacturers, and quality tools fit for discerning makers.
